Blackpink fans praise Lisa’s “stunning” debut solo album embracing her Thai heritage

Lisa from K-pop girl group Blackpink has released her debut solo album Lalisa, featuring the title track of the same name.

The new single “Lalisa” was released with a music video on September 10 on the band’s official YouTube channel.

Along with “Lalisa,” the new album also features the song “Money” as well as the instrumental versions of both tracks.

The new music video features Lisa in various settings, from riding a motorcycle in an urban night backdrop and on a dirt bike in a desert-like scene to pole dancing.

According to a tweet by the World Music Awards, the video received a million likes on YouTube in two hours and five minutes. It has had over 11 million views in the two hours since it premiered at the time of reporting.

Describing her new single at a press conference before the release, Lisa said the song shows “the strength of my name and my confident side. I hope that people will hear the song and think, ‘Wow, this is it. This is something only Lisa can do’,” Soompi reported Friday.

The Thai-born artist also explained she wanted the new song and the music video to “have a Thai feel” and “Thai style” by including elements of her Thai heritage, such as the clothing.

“The set and outfits also capture that Thai vibe well,” Lisa said, according to Soompi. “I really liked the way it turned out. I also wore Thai clothing in the music video. I think the results came out really pretty.”
