Blackpink’s fans spent two years waiting for the K-pop girl group to make a comeback and that moment is finally here! The group’s next album Born Pink is coming our way next month and they gave us a taste of things to come with the new single “Ready for Love”.

The music video for this song marks the first collaboration between Blackpink and PUBG Mobile, one of the highest-grossing mobile games of all time. The whimsical visual is fully animated, and it shows the group’s members exploring the world of the magical video game.

“Ready for Love” is Blackpink’s first Korean single since the release of their last LP The Album in 2020. This record will be followed by the release of the group’s upcoming second studio album Born Pink, set to be released sometime next month.

Back in July, the group’s label YG Entertainment announced that “a lot of Blackpink-esque music has been prepared over a long period of time”. In addition to teasing the group’s new album, they also promised “the largest world tour in the history of a K-pop girl group”, set to kick off in October. The release of Blackpink’s new album will also be preceded by a new single, set to hit the shelves this month.
