BLACKPINK is back in your area, and we like it very much, indeed.

K-pop girl group BLACKPINK has once again proven its might on the global music scene with Friday's release of "How You Like That," the four-piece band's first new single in over a year.

The new song, released as the debut offering from BLACKPINK's upcoming album, borrows bass-heavy, hip-hop-infused inspiration from the group's earlier work before going off the rails and exploding into an epic, dance-pop conclusion popping with wild vocal quirks and heavy-hitting drums.

BLACKPINK also released a music video for the single, which sees members Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa performing high-energy choreography in disparate locales, including a bazaar, a lush forest, and a snow-capped oil field dotted with functioning oil derricks because why the hell not!

Though the group has become one of the world's most popular acts, BLACKPINK recently notched its highest-charting song in the United States earlier this year with the release of "Sour Candy," a collaboration with Lady Gaga that appears on the pop icon's sixth solo album Chromatica and debuted at No. 33 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Further details regarding BLACKPINK's upcoming full-length Korean album have yet to be announced, though the currently untitled set is expected to be released in September. Watch the "How You Like That" music video above.
