The official announcement
According to Twitter’s latest announcement, the song LALISA leads by 45%, vaulting to 1.5 million mentions on the popular site in the track week between July 22 to 28, 2022. The news follows LALISA’s recent nomination in the best K-pop category in the upcoming 2022 MTV Video Music Awards that was announced on July 26, 2022. Ever since the launch of the HOT trending songs chart in October last year, LALISA has become the eighth song to rank at #1 in the chart. The song has also climbed to #2 recently after having debuted at #3 on the inaugural Hot Trending Songs chart. The song is the only track to have appeared in every single edition of the chart since its launch, according to Billboard.
Earlier Spotify record
LALISA has crossed 660 million streams on the popular music streaming platform Spotify. The album is said to have achieved the milestone in just 244 days, with Lisa joining her own group, BLACKPINK, in breaking such a significant record. It is because it has become the only female act to have achieved such a milestone. It also makes Lisa the first-ever female soloist to have achieved 660 million streams on Spotify with a debut album. Apart from that, LALISA is the only album by an Asian artist to have achieved such a feat.
Guinness world record
Upon its release, Lisa’s music video LALISA also set a Guinness world record for having gathered a massive number of views within 24 hours. It set the bar at a whopping 73.6 million and officially became the most viewed music video (debut) by any solo artist on the very first day.
Lisa and BLACKPINK
Lisa 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.
