BLACKPINK’s Lisa bleeds confidence on her dominant first solo single “LALISA”

She says it herself – she’s the loudest in the room.

Becoming a heroine to her home country of Thailand when she debuted as the sole non-Korean member of mega-popular K-pop group BLACKPINK, Lisa has been tearing it up ever since.

Now, she’s the third of the group’s four members to receive the solo venture treatment, following Jennie’s “Solo” all the way back in 2018 and a strong showing from Rosé earlier this year, via her new single album (yes, that’s a thing in K-pop, for those raising an eyebrow), LALISA.

Leading off the two track project is the title track, and it – of course – comes complete with a vivid, massive music video. Nonetheless, it’s Lisa’s performance that deftly takes main stage, with her flipping through the song’s numerous changes with such smoothness as to make each component feel perfectly natural, from her supremely confident Korean verses to the English rap near the middle point, which even sees her kick her flow up a notch (“Hit after hit, though / Rocks in my wrist, so I call ’em the Flintstones”) right on down to the song’s final, dominant beat switch.

Check it out below, and let’s hope Lisa – or any of her BLACKPINK co-members – get more chances to flex via their own material soon.
