I knew this collaboration would be a bop the minute people started speculating it was happening. I sent it to a few of my friends who would ordinarily never listen to lyrics they can't understand and they all loved it too.

Now we're just left waiting for a super sexy MV. I know there's not one to be expected, but one can always deram.

Of course, they are the most likely group to have international appeal....the only group that I could sell to my family and friends back in Canada.....oh yeah, except my niece....who already liked/likes Mamamoo.

Isn't Dua from the UK and famous as well? Its not surprising that it will enter the charts.

Blackpink sings over 50% of the song so people liking or not liking Blackpink in the song is a very important factor in it's success and the collaboration has been very well received. At the very least this has been great promotion for Blackpink.

Jedward also fit this criteria (in the UK anyway) and we only let them near our Top 40 twice (that was twice too many). In the UK, we won't you reward you if your song is ***te unless we're trolling.

"by Black Pink and Dua Lipa" is a bit misleading. It's by Dua Lipa featuring Blackpink, though BP (or someone at YG) converted some lines into Korean for some reason.

More than 50% of the song is sung by Blackpink so it's a collaboration.

lol that doesn't count as Kpop getting into the UK chart, it's Dua Lipa's song with BP on it.

"BlackPink becomes the first K-pop GIRL GROUP ever to enter the UK's 'Official Singles Chart Top 40" The article says nothing about the song being a K-pop song (though clearly it is a pop song with some Korean lyrics) and as Blackpink becomes more global they will become more than just a K-pop group releasing K-pop songs.
