KUALA LUMPUR: Apparently US pop sensation Ariana Grande had to settle for the next best thing to taking a wefie with international K-Pop group BlackPink — by being phostoshopped in!
According to Soompi, American music producer and songwriter Tommy Brown had uploaded a photo of himself with the hot music quartet in South Korea on his Instagram account recently.
The producer, popularly known as TB Hits, had cheekily captioned the picture with: “New member of BlackPink. I know I’m your favourite.”
Brown, 33, has worked extensively with Grande on many of her songs, including recent hits like 7 Rings and Thank U, Next.
When BlackPink member Jisoo replied in the comments section to Brown’s post with, “Welcome,” Grande also chimed in by writing, “This is the best photo I’ve ever seen.”
Then the 26-year-old Grammy-winning artiste added: “Please and I mean please… please photoshop me in.”
Brown, who has worked with other music stars such as Fifth Harmony, Nas, Chris Brown and Machine Gun Kelly, later made Grande’s wish come true by posting a new version of the photo which included the Break Free and Bang Bang singer edited in.
He jokingly captioned the new image with, “Sry here’s the real one,” to which Grande playfully responded with, “Ty so good seeing u guys.”
BlackPink members Rose and Jennie then reacted with a positive, “Gahh (as well as a heart emoticon),” and, “Lmy guys already,” respectively.
