Lisa of BLACKPINK added a record to her name as a solo artist. Her song “MONEY” from her 2021 debut solo album Lalisa has become the fastest K-pop track by a solo artist to surpass 500 million streams on Spotify.
The achievement comes around a month after she created YouTube history as a solo artist when the music video of the album’s title song “LALISA” crossed 500 million views.
About Lisa’s latest Spotify record with ‘MONEY’
More than one Spotify record for Lisa
According to the Korean-language portal News Inside, YG Entertainment officially made the announcement of Lisa’s Spotify achievement on 19 July.
The song, which is on the B-side of the album, was released on 10 September 2021. It took just 313 days to surpass the mark of 500 million on Spotify. Accordingly, it is also the fastest song by any female K-pop artist to reach the milestone.
Lisa, therefore, broke the record set by her own band with the song “How You Like That” in 2021. That song took approximately a year and three months to reach 500 million streams on Spotify.
Together with her “MONEY” and “How You Like That”, Lisa now has four songs in the 500-million-streams club on Spotify. The other two hits include “Kill This Love” and “DDU-DU DDU-DU,” both of which were recorded with BLACKPINK.
In January 2022, Lalisa, the album, made history when it became the first album by any K-pop solo artist to record over 500 million streams on Spotify. It placed Lisa as only the second female K-pop act, after her own band BLACKPINK, to touch the 500-million milestone on the platform.
On 25 June, YG Entertainment thanked fans for 500 million views of the music video of “LALISA” on YouTube.
