British four-piece Little Mix just revealed their dream girl group collab and we’re very much here for it.
Over the weekend, Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall hosted an impromptu Twitter Q&A on the band’s account. A fan asked if the British girl group could collaborate with another girl group, suggesting, “Kpop maybe.” Moments later, Thirlwall replied, “a Blackpink collab would be pretty amazing,” and added a string of emojis that may hint that there’s some truth behind the tweet.

If Little Mix x Blackpink turns out to be the real deal, it would mark the K-pop artists’ first collaboration with a fellow girl group—but it wouldn’t be their first collab with a Western act.
Last year, Blackpink released their debut international collaboration with “New Rules” singer Dua Lipa after meeting the chart topper backstage in South Korea. The resulting smash, “Kiss and Make Up,” continued the group’s North American takeover, which led to them being included on this year’s Coachella lineup, making them the first Korean girl group to appear at the event.
It would be no small feat for Little Mix either. Since forming in 2011, the group have had no shortage of stellar collaborations—Stormzy, Sean Paul, Cheat Codes, and, most recently, Nicki Minaj. In 2015, they joined forces with Japanese pop group Flower for the bubbly single “Dreamin’ Together,” but it wasn’t pushed internationally. With the growing buzz surrounding LM and Blackpink, we can only imagine where they would take this potential collaboration. A viral music video? Live performances? Award shows? Bring it on.
