Following Jenny and Rosé, BLACKPINK Lisa will team up with Teddy to release her first solo album.
On September 6, YG Entertainment uploaded the tracklist of Lisa’s first solo album ‘LALISA’ on their official SNS accounts. In particular, the title song, which is also the same name as the album, is drawing much attention as it is made by the hit-maker producer Teddy of The Black Label. YG described Lisa’s album: “The title track ‘LALISA’ and the b-side track ‘MONEY’ are both hip-hop songs that have dynamic rhythms and melodies with explosive rap.”
Teddy is known as the famous producer who contributed the most to many BLACKPINK’s hit songs, such as “Playing With Fire”, “Ddu-du Ddu-du”, “Forever Young”, “As If It’s Your Last”, “Kill This Love”, “Lovesick Girls”, “How You Like That”, “Ice Cream”, etc. He even participated in the production of Jennie’s solo song “SOLO” and “ON THE GROUND” of Rosé.
Until now, ‘LALISA’ has recorded more than 700,000 copies of pre-order. According to YG, Lisa’s solo album ‘LALISA’ surpassed 700,000 copies on August 30, only 4 days after it was opened for pre-order. Therefore, Lisa rapidly broke the record of being the KPOP female soloist who sells the most pre-order albums.
There are only a few days left until the album is released officially. If the total sales exceed 1 million copies, Lisa will become the first female soloist to earn the “million-seller” title in KPOP. Earlier, based on the data released by Hanteo Chart, as of April 21, Rosé’s album “R” surpassed 500,000 copies, recording the highest sales of KPOP female solo artists. At that time, Rosé became the first idol to break the “half million-seller” record that BoA established 19 years ago.
It is expected that Lisa will boost her global popularity through this solo debut. She currently has 58 million followers on Instagram and is also known as a fashion icon because she has been invited to become the ambassador for many luxury brands such as Celine. In particular, not only ‘LALISA’ is famous in her home country in Thailand or the Southeast Asian countries, she has spread her name to be known all over the world. BLACKPINK’s Youtube channel has 64.7 million subscribers, while Lisa’s individual channel only has gained up to 8.13 million. Therefore, fans are expecting that the solo debut of Lisa will make a big hit that could boost her popularity even more.
Jennie debuted as a soloist in 2018, and Rosé has successfully finished all her solo activities in March this year. As a result, netizens are raising high expectations for Lisa to gain more achievements as the 3rd solo artist of BLACKPINK. Her album will be released at 6 PM on September 10.
