During Dua Lipa’s interview, she said, “Basically, a friend of mine told me BLACKPINK was performing in Newark and that we should go, and I was like wait, maybe I should get up and do ‘Kiss and Make Up’ with them. So I sent them a message. That’s kind of how it happened.”
Blackpink was surprised after hearing Dua Lipa will be joining them. These great artists met on stage and joyfully greeted each other with hugs. After catching up, Dua Lipa said, “I’m so happy to do this with you guys,” and BLACKPINK replied in awe, “When we heard, we were like, ‘What? Dua Lipa? I can’t believe it!’”
After their rehearsal, Dua Lipa said on the interview, “Soundcheck was so fun. It was so easy. I mean we just kind of ran the song a couple times together and knew exactly what we were doing and we were ready to go.”
She added at the end, “Queens, I love you. You guys are so amazing, so talented, and so beautiful. And I can’t wait to see what the world has in store for you. Sending you lots of love!”
