K-pop girl group BLACKPINK’s Lisa, whose real name is Lalisa Manobal, made it onto the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, Monday (local time), with her tune, “Lalisa.”
The title track of her first solo release rose to No. 84 on Billboard’s main singles chart. This is the second-highest record by a female K-pop solo artist after fellow group member Rose’s solo single, “On The Ground,” which rose to No. 70 on the chart earlier this year.
“Lalisa” also claimed the second spot on the Billboard Global 200 chart and sixth spot on this week’s Digital Song Sales Chart of the platform, which ranks the bestselling tracks in the U.S. each week.
The artist made her solo debut on Sept. 10, releasing the album “Lalisa” ― consisting of two tracks, “Lalisa” and “Money.” She is the third member of the group to kick off as a solo act, following Jennie and Rose.
The single sold over 73,600 copies in just one week after it hit stores, setting record sales for a Korean female solo artist in the first seven days.
Lisa debuted as a rapper for the four-piece act, whose members include Jisoo, in 2016 with the song “Whistle.” The group instantly shot to stardom after its debut and became a global success. It has released a string of hits, including “DDU-DU DDU-DU” (2018), “Kill This Love” (2019), and “How You Like That” (2020).Internet Explorer Channel Network
