BLACKPINK Jisoo ranks 6th on Spotify Global Chart, set new records for Kpop female soloist 

Jisoo, a member of BLACKPINK, has broken yet another new record for Korean female solo artists.

According to YG Entertainment on April 2nd, Jisoo’s “FLOWER” ranked 6th on Spotify’s Daily Top Songs Global Chart on its first day of release (March 31st).


In particular, the song was streamed 4.67 million times, while Jisoo’s artist page attracted over 330,000 followers within just one day. Both are the highest records for K-pop female solo artists.

Major foreign media outlets also praised Jisoo’s solo debut. UK’s prominent music magazine NME reported, “From the opening lines, BLACKPINK’s Jisoo makes her position clear on her debut solo single ‘Flower’”, adding, “Although she mixes entomological and botanical metaphors in the verses, the lyrics are poetic enough and get her point across.”

The magazine also continued, “Instrumentally, ‘Flower’ is unpredictable in the best way, managing to mix elegance with inventiveness and elements of modern production with more traditional sounding sonics; a gentle thrill ride through one of the best K-pop songs of the year so far.”

At the same time, Billboard commented that Jisoo has proven her capabilities as a solo artist with her solo album “ME”, while Rolling Stone praised, “With “Flower” as her launching pad, the whole world will be paying attention to Jisoo’s future moves”.

On the other hand, Jisoo released her first solo album “ME” on March 31st. Within the first day of release, “ME” has sold 876,249 copies, signaling a strong possibility of Jisoo becoming a “million-seller” with just one release.

Meanwhile, the title track, “Flower”, is a dance song with a unique bass sound and minimal arrangement. It is a song that combines lyrical lyrics and melodies with Jisoo’s unique vocals.
