Ozuna teases collaboration with Blackpink, fans say it's going to be 'legendary'
While Blackpink’s fans were disappointed that MTV accidentally announced that Lisa would be performing at the MTV VMAs 2021 which was not true, they have another reason to rejoice. Even though Ozuna was not nominated in any category, he was invited to perform for the award show. During the interview with the Latin pop star on the red carpet, Ozuna shared his excitement about his new music. He debuted his newest single ‘La Funka’ and hinted at working with Blackpink.
When asked to say something more about his new album featuring ‘La Funka’, Ozuna cheekily replied that he was about to reveal some brand new information for the first time. He explained that he had several collaborations coming up with the likes of DJ Snake, Megan Thee Stallion and the K-pop group Blackpink and he was excited about it. The four-member girl group had last collaborated with the likes of Selena Gomez, Lady Gaga and Cardi B.

Lisa's sales record
It’s also a good day to be Blackpink’s fan because Lisa continues to make history days after her solo debut album ‘Lalisa’ was released. While she is the fastest soloist to achieve 70.4 million views on YouTube in the first 24 hours with her solo debut music video, that’s not it. The Thai-born idol has now surpassed 120 million views and 10 million likes on YouTube. Additionally, the single album ‘Lalisa’ has become the fastest album by a K-pop female soloist to make 400k sales according to Hanteo Charts. Lisa has also topped iTunes in 71 countries breaking the record for a female K-pop soloist with the most #1s on iTunes.
Rose is reportedly attending the Met Gala
Along with Lisa, Rose (Rosé) also happens to be in the news. The singer was spotted in NYC days before the Met Gala. And paparazzi caught her coming out of a Yves Saint Laurent fitting hours before the glamorous charity event. She happens to be the global brand ambassador for the French fashion house. And if Rose does indeed attend the Met Gala 2021 she will become the first K-pop female idol to be doing so. While it is not yet confirmed, fans are excited for the potential appearance.
Fans of Ozuna and Blackpink were excited as they made tweets like, “Ozuna has just confirmed an upcoming collab with blackpink and meg thee stallion the diversity in this collab is so refreshing, having the spanish english & korean language in just one song is actually gonna be so legendary,” and “Ozuna, Meg, and BlackPink?!?
