Update 2: Per a statement, DJ Snake has confirmed his collaboration song with Ozuna, Megan Thee Stallion, and Lisa from BLACKPINK is titled “SG” and will be dropping on October 22nd.
Update 1: We finally have clarification on #Ozupink! After Ozuna mentioned he had a collaboration coming with girl group BLACKPINK and the “WAP” rapper Megan Thee Stallion, it turned out it was a DJ Snake song all along. Also, only Lisa, the K-pop group’s resident rapper who recently made her solo debut wearing Mexican and Chilean brands on her “LALISA” music video, will be featured on the song. The producer posted a teaser of the upcoming collab on his Twitter account, tagging the artists and simply writing the track’s “coming soon.”
Though nothing else has been announced yet, per the teaser, the song will most likely be called “SXY GRL”— a very appropriate moniker for both Megan and Lisa. And while we still don’t know how soon is “soon,” fans on Twitter are speculating the release date might be October 22nd. Other fans have even posted snippets of the song on Twitter.
By the teaser and the song snippets, it’s clear that SOLM—as stans have baptized the collab—will be fire.

Sound the alarm, because YouTube is about to break. A new major Latine x K-pop collab is about to dawn upon us.
Last night at the VMA’s red carpet, Ozuna nonchalantly dropped a bomb on fans all over the world when talking about his upcoming single. He revealed that it will feature K-pop queens BLACKPINK, as well as Texas baddie Megan Thee Stallion and hitmaker DJ SNAKE.
“DJ Snake, Megan Thee Stallion, BLACKPINK, and Ozuna, coming up next,” he told MTV News while discussing his upcoming projects.
Fans, of course, could not keep their chill.
At last night’s VMA’s, Ozuna premiered his latest song “La Funka” by performing it, giving a glimpse of what’s to come with his new album.
The “Caramelo” singer has been teasing an incursion into the K-pop world for some time now, even going as far as following a member of K-pop boy group GOT7, Bam Bam, on Twitter after he said he wanted to collab with him.
However, his upcoming single with BLACKPINK will be his first K-pop banger. This won’t be BLACKPINK’s first time linking up with a Latine star, though. For the female ensemble’s 2020 THE ALBUM, the LP featured a very tame Cardi B on “Bet You Wanna.” “Cardi a good catch, but you gotta chase me/ Grab my waistline, but don’t ever waste me (hmm),” the “WAP” singer rapped on her verse. On the same album, BLACKPINK also collaborated with Selena Gomez for the single “Ice Cream.”
The Ozuna and BLACKPINK team-up will be the latest in a trend of K-pop-Latine collabs that have been expanding in the last few years as both industries gain major global recognition. Some of the latest include Guaynaa with soloist Chung Ha, Leslie Grace and Play N Skillz with Super Junior, and Sebastián Yatra with Monsta X.
