While fans are excited at even just the thought of a potential BLACKPINK and John Legend collaboration, the male singer is no stranger to K-pop collaborations. Back in 2018, John Legend had worked with Red Velvet member for the song "Written in The Stars". The song was released through SM Entertainment's SM Station special project.
John Legend's music usually makes use of R&B, soul, and pop while BLACKPINK usually sticks with hip-hop, EDM, and pop. The two have widely different genres and them working together could birth a new concept for BLACKPINK. Can you imagine John Legend's deep, soulful voice paired with the vocals, rap, and dance of BLACKPINK? The very thought is exciting!
