BLACKPINK Lisa embodied confidence by putting her name on her first solo album.
Lisa organized an online press conference to celebrate the release of her first solo single ‘LALISA‘ on the 10th.
Today, Lisa said, “I’m so nervous and unbelievable. While practicing the choreography, I was like, ‘Is this just the beginning?’ I wanted to, but when I started filming the music video, I realized it.” “I’m happy to be able to show you my first solo stage. I think it would be nice to see Blink (fan club) look pretty.”
It is her first time to have a solo album released, after 5 years of their, debut as a group, so she showcased overflowing affection. In addition, Lisa said “It’s my first solo album, so it’s very meaningful. I’m very grateful to the fans who have been waiting for my solo for a long time. I’ve worked hard to prepare, so I hope you like it.”
Both the album title and the title track were named after her. “It’s just me I wanted to show my best side. I wanted to show Lalisa herself” she added. Lisa‘s solo album, which will be released at 1 pm today, consists of 4 tracks in total which include the title songs ‘LALISA’ and ‘MONEY (money)’ and the instrumental (accompaniment) version. The title song ‘LALISA’ is a hip-hop genre that harmonizes with a provocative brass riff and dynamic rhythm. ‘MONEY’ is also a song in which Lisa’s explosive swag is expected.
Meanwhile, when Lisa was asked by the fans about the memorable lyrics for the title song ‘LALISA’, Lisa said, “When I first started, the lyrics, ‘You can tell just by looking at my back’, went so well with the choreography that I felt confident right from the start. So I think that’s the part I like the most. Our Blink (fandom name) seems to be like that because we can see from afar just by looking at my back.”
Lisa will meet fans first through ‘Countdown Live’, which will be broadcast simultaneously through Naver V LIVE and TikTok an hour before the album’s release. While on 1 pm today, the first solo single album ‘LALISA’ will be released. Later on, she will perform her first solo stage on NBC’s signature talk show, ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’.
Meanwhile, Lisa would like to incorporate the culture of my native Thailand into her solo debut song.
Lisa explained the process of reflecting on her native Thai culture in her first solo song at the same press conference which was released today.
Lisa said that the ideas were actively reflected as it was her first solo. She added that she wanted to put a Thai feel into the song this time, but Teddy Oppa just arranged it in a Thai style which she liked. Moreover, she added black and gold to the album design.
Lisa revealed that she wore Thai clothes this time and told the director that she wanted to wear Thai clothes in the music video, and the result was pleasant. She also added traditional Thai dance to the MV. Moreover, she wanted to showcase her Thai culture, in her solo album ‘LALISA’. The culture was well-reflected and the song itself has a Thai style. Lisa thinks that the combination would be amazing.
Meanwhile, Lisa’s first single will be released on several music sites at 1 pm KST today.
