BLACKPINK And ‘PUBG’ Proceed Their Unlikely Relationship With ‘Ready For Love’ Music Video

Establish a additional iconic duo than BLACKPINK and…PUBG?

It isn’t actually as crazy as a result of it sounds, as a result of the Korean musical strain and the world-dominating battle royale recreation have joined forces numerous events over the course of the earlier 12 months. This has culminated in what some may even ponder a “metaverse second” at current, the discharge of a CG BLACKPINK music video for his or her new tune, Ready for Love. It takes place in a modified mannequin of PUBG Mobile using some imagery from the game, with the ladies in stylized avatar type.

As soon as extra, this is not as random as a result of it sounds, given the dimensions of the collaboration to date. BLACKPINK actually acquired PUBG objects once more in August 2021, which included bundles from each of the ladies and likewise points like BLACKPINK gun skins and such, and the collab seems to have been throughout the works successfully sooner than that, once more in fall 2020.

Properly, that might want to have truly labored out successfully, because of now points have escalated. Fortnite may have gotten Ariana Grande and Travis Scott to hold out, nevertheless PUBG Mobile is at current within the midst of a metaverse-ish BLACKPINK dwell efficiency assortment the place players can log in on explicit dates to view digital performances from the group in-game. It’s how the model new monitor Ready for Love was debuted throughout the first place last week.

After which received right here this music video, which is titled straight up “BLACKPINK X PUBG MOBILE – ‘Ready For Love’ M/V” and is carefully primarily based totally on the game, although the ladies don’t end up taking footage anyone over the course of the films. Merely dancing, and digital Lisa will get to journey a digital bike. The crossover seems to be well-received, already at 8 million views, #20 in trending this morning, with a secure 1.8 million likes to 43K dislikes ratio. Truly all the best suggestions are in languages ​​I do not converse, and in a method, one issue PUBG and BLACKPINK do have in widespread are very, very world fanbases.

These crossover gives are most likely very worthwhile for everyone involved. Whereas we have now no revenue or earnings data on the historic previous of BLACKPINK and PUBG proper right here, it’s reported that Travis Scott earned spherical $20 million for his Fortnite collaboration, which included solely a single, pre-rendered effectivity in-game, and the sale of skins and emotes. It seems very most likely that the BLACKPINK collab is likely to be making everyone involved pretty rich. Properly, additional rich.

Fortnite, henceforth, has slowed down relating to its huge musical performances. Its last foremost one was Ariana Grande’s “Rift Tour,” which was practically a 12 months up to now in August 2021. Reportedly the pandemic delayed some plans, and rumors have instructed a beforehand deliberate Girl Gaga dwell efficiency may definitely nonetheless happen someday. I moreover suspect Fortnite is also making an attempt to recruit Billie Eilish for a gift, given what an unlimited fan Fortnite chief Donald Mustard is of the singer, nevertheless we’ll see. Nothing launched out of that camp for a while, so head to PUBG to see BLACKPINK in its place. There’s one other shot to see the effectivity coming July 29-31.
