K-pop singer and BLACKPINK member Lisa’s supporters across the world have become furious over the popular music platform Spotify’s blunder. Not only that but they also demanded from the platform to make an official apology to the Korean diva. For the same purpose, the fans have started a trend on Twitter titled ‘Apologize to Lisa’ globally as the K-pop star faced a lot of vile, misogynist, and abusive comments on the Internet because of the company’s unnecessary blunder.

Spotify’s unexpected blunder

Spotify recently tagged BTS member Jungkook as the Most Streamed K-Pop Soloist of 2022. There was no denying that most fans accepted it graciously, considering JK did drop a few record-shattering projects in the same year. This includes the latest FIFA World Cup song, Dreamers. But, the music platform backtracked on its own words, later tagging Lisa as the recipient of the same title. The streaming giant is said to have not merged their tags properly, which resulted in such a blunder. As a result of the same, the rapper was harassed online for bagging the coveted title.

Lisa’s supporters demand an apology

Soon ‘Apologize to Lisa’ began trending on Twitter with the K-Pop star’s supporters demanding a formal apology from Spotify. Hence, according to them, the company must make a formal apology.

Lisa’s details

Talking about Lisa, she is a Thai artist, and her original name is Lalisa Manoban. She has inspired millions of fans around the world with her rapping, singing, and dancing. Did you know that she also made her solo debut in September 2021? Her album was titled Lalisa and sold 736,000 in South Korea, which is a record in itself. It also became the most viewed video on YouTube in 24 hours. That, again, is a record that Lisa made as a solo Korean artist.

Lisa’s records

There is no denying that Lisa is the perfect balance between impact and popularity because every time the diva uploads a photo, makes a cover, or releases music, it goes viral on social media instantly. Just a few weeks ago, BLACKPINK released their much-awaited album BORN PINK, and all the songs were successful, most of which also ranked in the top 25 of the Global Spotify charts. Among the tracks is Happiest Girl, a song that includes melodious chord progression and soulful piano performance. It is Lisa’s soulful voice in the same song that has won her accolades and caught everyone’s attention.
