The upcoming Lisa solo album has generated a lot of online buzz since the posting of the first teaser. An article posted by YG Entertainment shared how Lisa dominated social networks around the world, including the US and China.

“In fact, LISA’s name was ranked at no. 1 on Twitter’s Worldwide Trend Rankings, while the related hashtag(#Lisaiscoming) was placed on the top ranks in countries including the US, Spain, and Germany. Furthermore, LISA’s ‘Coming Soon Poster’ post on Instagram and Facebook received 6M and 1M ‘hearts’(likes) respectively, showing a rapid uptrend.

“The Chinese fans also showed overwhelming anticipation. The hashtag ‘LISA’s Solo Debut Coming Soon’ on Weibo surpassed 3.3B views in a day, proving her unrivaled popularity and presence in China. It seems that her role as a dance mentor in Season 2 and 3 of the Chinese audition program ‘Qing Chun You Ni’ played a big role in her massive popularity among Chinese fans.”

Lisa, whose full name is Lalisa Manoban, is the main dancer and lead rapper of K-pop girl group BLACKPINK. Her birth name is actually Pranpriya, but she changed it to Lalisa after a fortune teller told her it would bring her prosperity.

The Thai K-pop idol is one of the most popular K-pop artists in the world. In fact, on Aug. 21 her official YouTube channel Lilifilm Official hit eight million subscribers, extending her lead as the most-subscribed K-pop female solo individual artist on the platform.
