Sour Candy is a song recorded by the American singer-songwriter Lady Gaga and BLACKPINK.

The album was scheduled to be released in early April, but was postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. [1]

It is the first time the two acts have worked together, and the second time BLACKPINK has been featured as a whole on another artist’s album.

The song was released on May 28, 2020 on all platforms.

Background

On April 22, Lady Gaga confirmed the Chromatica's tracklist on her Twitter account.

Apart from the collaboration with BLACKPINK, the album counts with the participation of great artists such as Ariana Grande and Elton John.

On May 6, 2020, Gaga revealed on her Twitter account that Sour Candy would be released on May 29, the same day as the Chromatica album release. [2]

Music and lyrics

"Sour Candy" is a "sugar-sweet" dance-pop, electropop and deep house "banger" which features a "bouncy" house and dance beat. Its lyrics show Gaga and Blackpink "trading off flirty lines"in English and Korean which use sour candy as a metaphor to "illustrate how they function in a relationship". The post-chorus features Gaga performing a "speak-rap", while the K-pop group's verses include "tight, almost mechanical melodies".

Sou-sour candy
(Sou-sour candy)


I'm sour candy

So sweet, then I get a little angry, yeah

Sour candy, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm super psycho

Make you crazy when I turn the lights low

Sour candy, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah


Ask me to be nice, and then I'll do it extra mean

뜻밖으 표정 하나에 넌 당황하겠지

이상적이란 말들로 날 포장한 건 너야, 너야

If you wanna fix me, then let's break up here and now

거리낌 없는 눈빛에 넌 거릴 두니까
툭 까보면 어김없이 소릴 질러, wow
Uh-huh, uh-huh
(Oh)


I'm hard on the outside

But if you give me time
Then I could make time for your love
I'm hard on the outside

But if you see inside, inside, inside


I might be messed up

But I know what's up
You want a real taste
At least I'm not a fake
Come, come, unwrap me
Come, come, unwrap me
I'll show you what's me
Close your eyes, don't peek
Now I'm undressing
Unwrap sour candy
Come, come, unwrap me
Come, come, unwrap me

Come on, sour candy (Oh)


I'm hard on the outside

But if you give me time
Then I could make time for your love
I'm hard on the outside

But if you see inside, inside, inside


I'm sour candy

So sweet 'til I get a little angry, yeah

Sour candy, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm super psycho

Make you crazy when I turn the lights low

Sour candy, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah


Take a bite, take a bite
