The much-awaited collaboration of music sensation Selena Gomez and South Korean girl group Blackpink is finally getting closer to being released. To keep up fans' interests YG Entertainment dropped the latest “Ice Cream” poster featuring Selena Gomez on August 26 taking the excitement several notches high. In the poster, Selena can be seen smiling widely dressed in a midriff-bearing candy-striped pair of separates. She complemented the retro look with a sailor hat, white gloves, chunky gold hoops and wind-tousled hair. The singer appears to be in a gleeful mood. The poster is to remind her fandom of the single's scheduled release date, which is Friday (Aug 28) at midnight EST/1 pm KST.



 

 

Taking to Twitter, Gomez also posted a teaser video of the upcoming collab tweeting, “Special delivery! ICE CREAM song and video are out on August 28. @BLACKPINK.” 



 

 

Gomez’s poster is in line with other posters of Blackpink’s members that have already been posted by YG Family. The posters reveal Blackpink’s members Jennie, Rosé, Lisa and Jisoo wearing similarly vintage fashion, rocking their own '70s-inspired look that screams bright colors and elements like flower power and macrame.

Billboard reports that in the lead-up to the single, Gomez called the chance to work with Blackpink "a big, big dream for me" during a love-filled FaceTime call earlier this week with the foursome. The website further reports that "Ice Cream" is set to be featured as the second pre-release single off Blackpink's long-awaited debut album, ‘Blackpink: The Album’ that will be released on October 2 via YG Entertainment. Here is a look at the teaser posters showing  Blackpink members.
