The BLACKPINK star has made significant strides

Her tenure with BLACKPINK has been nothing short of spectacular. After debuting in 2016, the group achieved monumental success. Their studio albums The Album (2021) and Born Pink (2022) peaked at No. 2 and No. 1, respectively, on the US Billboard 200 Albums chart. They also made history by becoming the first K-pop act to headline Coachella in 2023.

Lisa‘s solo endeavors have also been remarkably successful. In South Korea, her debut single album Lalisa sold 736,221 copies in the first week of release. It was eventually certified triple platinum for selling 750,000 copies. Both of the songs on Lalisa—the title track “Lalisa” and “Money”—charted within the Top 10 of the Billboard Global 200. What’s more, “Money” is the longest-charting song by a female K-pop soloist on the Billboard Hot 100 and the UK Singles Chart.
