At their tour stop in Newark Wednesday night, Blackpink treated fans to a special surprise. Towards the end of their set, the Korean pop group brought out Grammy-winning singer Dua Lipa for a performance of their collaborative song “Kiss And Make Up.”
The Newark performance marks the first time Blackpink and Lipa have sung “Kiss And Make Up” live together. The song, which was included on a 2018 deluxe edition of Lipa’s self-titled album, is anthemic pop perfection. Blackpink are quickly becoming some of pop’s biggest stars, and the band sold out a run of US arena tours following their superstar Coachella set.
Taking to social media after their performance, Lipa posted a cute photo from their sound check and tweeted, “I have so much love for these girls and for our friendship.”
Lipa won the Grammy for Best New Artist earlier this year, and fans are awaiting the follow-up to her 2017 self-titled album. Blackpink are finishing up their US tour in support of their most recent EP, Kill This Love.
