Blackpink is truly giving fans what they want in 2021.
The K-pop girl group’s rapper, Lisa, is set to make her highly-anticipated solo debut this summer. Their fans, also known as Blinks, have been asking for a solo release from the stylish starlet for a long time.
YG Entertainment, the group’s label, had announced late last year that Lisa, whose real name is Lalisa Manoban, was already working on solo material. However, it stopped short of confirming an official release date and did not provide any more details.
Since then, fans have only heard rumours of an upcoming solo album by Lisa but no other information. And now, according to a report on streetwear fashion site Hybebeast, it seems like the Thai singer’s solo debut is set for this summer.
“Blackpink member Lisa is shooting a music video for her solo debut. We will be revealing more details soon,” YG Entertainment told Hypebeast.
Back in April, The Korea Herald reported that a YG Entertainment spokesperson could only say that “Lisa is still working hard [on the album]”. The official added that Lisa’s schedules will be announced by the label.
Lisa’s solo debut will make her the third member of Blackpink to release her own material. Jennie had her solo debut back in 2018 with her single Solo, while Rose dropped her two-track EP -R- last month.
