New K-pop band Black Pink releases collaboration with Big Bang

After an explosive debut in early August, YG Entertainment’s newest girl group Black Pink is doing a collaboration with one of the biggest names in the K-pop world: Big Bang.

The collaboration is a part of a new promotional EP featuring Black Pink and released Monday during a launch event with Moonshot , a cosmetics company owned by YG. Black Pink’s members are the official models for the debut of Lipfeat, a lip color collection that goes on sale Sept. 2 in Moonshot stores. A mini-album given away at the launch event features five new songs, including a “hidden” track with Big Bang. Each of the tracks is named after one of the new shades of Lipfeat.

The official Moonshot Instagram posted advertisements from the campaign Monday, featuring Black Pink members Jennie Kim and Jisoo Kim.

Black Pink are having a strong launch month, with the release of their first two singles, “Boombayah” and “Whistle,” debuting at No. 1 and 2 on the Billboard World Digital charts
