Dua Lipa and Blackpink have just dropped the ultimate party anthem ‘Kiss and Make Up’ in one of the most ambitious pop collaborations of 2018.
After announcing the collaboration only one short month ago, it feels like we’ve been waiting a lifetime for the fierce five to reveal the highly anticipated collaboration.
‘Kiss and Make Up’ mixes in perfect pop dance elements to craft an infectious beat and even catchier chorus that will leave you humming the words ‘k-kiss and make up’ for hours on end. Their vocals are complete contrasts to one another; Dua is known for her deeper sexy, sultry voice, while Blackpink are known for the sweet and innocent tones, especially main vocalist Rosé, yet combined it works perfectly. We also loved that not all of Blackpink’s additions to the track were in English and Dua allowed for Korean lyrics to be added.
The collaboration was the perfect all female anthem to round up incredible years for both parties. There isn’t a single thing that Dua hasn’t done this year; she has been finishing the remaining dates of her self titled world tour, scored one of the biggest summer hits ‘One Kiss’ with Calvin Harris and won two BRIT Awards for British Female Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act. While Blackpink made history as the first ever Korean girl group to chart in the UK Official Singles chart at Number 78 while simultaneously becoming the highest charting single by a Korean girl group on the Billboard Hot 100 at Number 55. Combined these women are a force to be reckoned with and truly showing that Dua Lipa and Blackpink are indeed the revolution.
