    BLACKPINK member Lisa, 24, debuted her solo album and single “Lalisa” on Sept. 10 and her music video’s views have broken Taylor Swift’s YouTube record.

    Queen sh*t: On Sept. 13, YouTube released data showing that Lisa’s music video “Lalisa” had 73.6 million views within the first 24 hours, according to NME

    • Lisa’s single was ranked No. 1 on the iTunes chart in 60 different countries, with her second single “Money” following behind at No. 2. Her music video “Lalisa” currently has over 143 million views on YouTube.
    • “Lalisa” is the sixth video on the “All-time Top 24 Hour Music Debuts” chart, surpassing Taylor Swift’s music video “ME” featuring Brendan Urie, which only has 65 million views and is ranked at ninth on the chart. 
    • Swift and Lisa are the only two solo acts on this chart, with the rest filled with K-pop boy group BTS and Lisa’s own girl group BLACKPINK. 
    • Lisa, who was born in Thailand and moved to South Korea in 2011, is the third member of BLACKPINK to have a solo debut. 
    • BLINKS, which is the name for the fans of the group, are anticipating Jisoo’s, another member of BLACKPINK, solo debut and believe that her album will start with the letter “O.” This would make each of the solo title tracks that the members have released spell out the word “SOLO,” Korea Portal reported.

    “Lalisa, love me”: Many BLINKS are excited about Lisa’s solo success and expressed their enthusiasm for the singer on social media. 

    • However, some BLINKS feel that Lisa isn’t being given the same amount of promotional opportunities that members Jennie and Rosé received for their solo activities.
