Blinks who attended the New Jersey stop of their "In Your Area" tour got a wonderful surprise as Grammy-award winning pop star Dua Lipa joined Blackpink on stage for a performance of their song, "Kiss and Makeup."

The show was held on May 1 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New JerseThe said live collab marked the first time that the two acts shared the stage together since the song was released in October last year. The banger, which features lyrics in English and Korean, is lifted off the deluxe edition of Dua Lipa's highly acclaimed self-titled album.

At the time of release, "Kiss And Make Up" gave the Korean foursome their second Billboard Hot 100 hit after "DDU-DU DDU-DU." They recently earned their third with their newest hit, "Kill This Love."

On her social media accounts, Dua Lipa posted a remembrance from the landmark show and uploaded a candid photo of her with Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa during the rehearsals. "Soundcheck with my babies @blackpinkofficial before we took the stage to perform KISS & MAKE UP for the very first time tonight in NYC together. I have so much love for these girls and for our friendship," she wrote.

Reciprocating the touching gesture, Jennie posted a photo of them with the caption, "KISS & MAKE UP with my lovely @dualipa finally happened tonight. She's one of the kindest, sweetest, and the most talented artists I've ever met and tonight was truly a dream come true. Love you, Dua."

Sharing the same emotions, Jisoo wrote: "We've dreamt about this moment ever since we started our collaboration with Dua and now it finally came true! I had such a great time and thank you, Dua once again for coming to perform with us tonight. And of course, Newark BLINKs' energy has made me happier! See you soon and let's also have fun tomorrow."

Rosé meanwhile called the British pop phenom an "angel." Her caption fully read: "WE LOVE U @dualipa! Thank you SO SO MUCH for coming up on stage with us. We had so much fun! You are an angel."

In a short yet sweet post, Lisa also thanked Dua Lipa and called their concert "such a special night."

Fresh off their record-breaking Coachella performance, Blackpink has embarked on the North American leg of their "In Your Area" world tour. Apart from Los Angeles, Chicago, Hamilton, and Newark, the ladies will also be performing in Atlanta (May 5) and Atlanta (May 8).
