Lady Gaga and Blackpink’s ‘Sour Candy’ Lyrics Are About Owning Your Damage


Ahead of Chromatica’s official release tomorrow, Lady Gaga released her second collaboration track from the album, her song with K-popgroup Blackpink’s “Sour Candy.” The song is a poppy, sassy track where Blackpink and Lady Gaga inform anyone trying to date them to accept their damage and not try to change it. They may have rough spots, but they’re sweet on the inside and authentic.Gaga spoke to Zane Lowe on Apple Music about her own journey accepting herself, seeing herself as human, and understanding she does deserve love even if she once didn’t feel worthy of it because of her past. “When you love someone and somebody like me, that usually inspires what we were saying in the beginning, the unconscious to go, ‘Don’t do it. You’re going to get hurt. Don’t love. You don’t deserve love. Look at all the weird shit you’ve done. Look how you’ve acted,'” she said. “What I used to say was crazy behavior that I now have extreme compassion for not only myself, but other people who experience this. That L, as it gets bigger, as I love someone more, I am internally being yelled at by a voice that is buried inside of me. And it’s hard, but it’s worth fighting for.”Lady Gaga and Blackpink spoke a little about how their collaboration came about in past interviews after the single was announced. Blackpink said they were mutual fans, according to Soompi: “We listened to each other’s music and became fans of each other, so we naturally carried out this project.”Lady Gaga told Japanese outlet TVGroove yesterday that she reached out to Blackpink. “I called Blackpink first to suggest working together. The Blackpink members were happy and showed enthusiasm for the project, so we were able to collaborate thanks to that. I wanted to support powerful women such as Blackpink, and they felt the same.”“I got excited while hearing them interpret the song in Korean,” she added. “I told them that their part is very creative and fun. Blackpink are beautiful young women, and they’re very talented. Through this collaboration, I felt proud as if I’d become Blackpink’s fifth member.”Here, the lyrics via Genius and the song to listen to below:
