With its accompanying video, “Ice Cream” was penned by an incredible lineup of songwriters, including Gomez herself as well as fellow pop icon Ariana Grande, plus Victoria Monét, TEDDY, Tommy Brown, Steven Franks, Bekuh BOOM, and 24.
“Ice Cream” arrives as the follow-up to BLACKPINK’s record-shattering single “How You Like That” — a trap-pop anthem recently nominated for Song of Summer at the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards. In addition to surpassing a staggering 100 million streams on Spotify in under a month, “How You Like That” debuted at #33 on the Billboard Hot 100, making BLACKPINK the K-pop act with the second-highest number of Hot 100 entries in chart history. Meanwhile, the mind-blowing visual for “How You Like That” became the fastest video in YouTube history to cross 10 million likes and smashed the record for most views within the first 24 hours.

Both “Ice Cream” and “How You Like That” will appear on BLACKPINK’s full-length debut. Merch bundles for the album are available now at BLACKPINK’s website.
Since bursting onto the scene in 2016, BLACKPINK have redefined the possibilities of K-pop, transcending all categorization and ascending to global stardom. With their unstoppably catchy single “DDU-DU DDU-DU,” the South Korean quartet broke the record for highest-charting Billboard Hot 100 debut by an all-female K-pop act, while its head-turning video surpassed 10 million views in just six hours and racked up 36.2 million views in one day.
Discovered by YG Entertainment, BLACKPINK is comprised of JISOO, JENNIE, ROSÉ and LISA: four immensely charismatic vocalists, dancers, and burgeoning fashion icons. Released in 2016, their debut “SQUARE ONE” quickly proved their crossover power; in 2018, “SQUARE UP” climbed to #40 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on the Billboard World Albums chart. Several months after “SQUARE UP” hit the charts, YG Entertainment and Interscope Records announced a global partnership for BLACKPINK, paving the way for the group’s international breakthrough. With their EP Kill This Love arriving in April 2019, BLACKPINK further boosted their popularity by successfully completing a world tour and becoming the first K-pop girl group to perform at Coachella, the largest music festival in the U.S.
