Much to the rejoice of Blinks everywhere, BLACKPINK member Lisa will make her solo debut this summer, after her label, YG Entertainment confirmed the news.
As reported in the entertainment site Soompi, the label shared that Lisa (Lalisa Manoban) will make her solo debut this summer and will “film the music video for her new song this week.”
The K-pop girl group has reached phenomenal global success as one of the biggest groups to come out of South Korea, along with successful launches of its individual members.
Jennie was the first to go solo with the aptly titled track “Solo,” which made her the second-ever solo female K-pop star to top Billboard’s World Digital Song Sales chart, followed by Rosé, who released a mini-EP that included two smash singles, “Gone” and “On the Ground.”
The infectiously catchy “One The Ground” went No. 1 on both of Billboard’s global charts – the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excluding US.
After Lisa releases her solo project, Jisoo will be the only remaining member left to release solo material.
As both the main rapper and key dancer in the group, Lisa will surely bring something new to any future solo venture.
BLACKPINK is also celebrating its fifth anniversary as a group this year in August with a mysterious “4+1 Project,” as well as a forthcoming film titled BLACKPINK The Movie, set for release next month.
The film will follow their critically acclaimed Netflix documentary, BLACKPINK: Light Up the Sky, which chronicled the group’s early beginnings, their world tour, Coachella debut, and an inside look at the rigorous training process that goes into becoming a K-pop idol.
The group also celebrated another recent milestone, with their global smash single “How You Like That” marks a full year (52 weeks) on the World Digital Song Sales chart, still holding steady at No.12.
