Selena Gomez has nothing but kind words for the hottest all-female Korean group BLACKPINK.


On August 28, Gomez and BLACKPINK released their collab fun song called “Ice Cream.” It is also the No. 1 video on Youtube these days.

Gomez spoke about her admiration for Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa’s work ethic when she appeared on the YouTube channel Nikkie Tutorials, as reported in

“I think I would learn a lot more from them. Their work ethic is something I’ve never seen before, and I’d like to say that I work hard. What I’ve found when I’ve spoken to them and met them is that they’re extremely disciplined and they are so talented that there isn’t anything that they wouldn’t strive to do. They were wonderful, and I miss them,” said Gomez, when asked about career advice for the Korean group.

“It’s a whole other world and it’s so special. It’s really exciting. I got to be my version of what I think it would be and they are just the coolest. They’re just cool. They’re so sweet, and the song is so fun,” Gomez added.

During an interview with Apple Music, the members of BLACKPINK also praised Gomez.

“We’ve been aware of her for a very long time. And luckily when this song came out on song cam we had the idea to have Selena on it, because we obviously knew she would fit into it right away. And yeah, it happened very naturally,” said Jennie.

BLACKPINK has broken their own record as the fastest Korean girl group music video to reach 10 million views on YouTube. They achieved it through their new single “How You Like That.”

BLACKPINK is expected to release their first Korean studio album “Blackpink: The Album” on Oct. 2.
