In an interview just before its launch on Friday (Aug 28), BLACKPINK said the song, on which they worked hard for so long, was special because they had an opportunity to work with Gomez.

BLACKPINK members added that what they were most excited about was that they could greet their fans again with an exciting and cheerful song.

Its members — Jisoo, Jennie, Rose and Lisa — said they were impressed with Gomez during the collaboration process. They said that they were all fans of Gomez and that, although they could not meet to work on the song, they were charmed by her on the numerous occasions they communicated with her during the production process. They saw that she was a humble person who freely expressed her opinions and that made them think that she was a really cool person.
