BLACKPINK’S LISA BREAKS RECORDS WITH LALISA
Lisa of BLACKPINK recently made K-pop history in the United Kingdom! Nearly two months after its first release, Lisa’s solo B-side song “MONEY” is still on the rise in the United Kingdom’s Official Charts (commonly taken as a U.K. equivalent to the charts of Billboard’s in the U.S.). After entering the Official Single charts No. 81 earlier this month, “MONEY” has been steadily rising for four consecutive weeks, rising to a higher level each week.
For the week of October 29 to November 4, “MONEY” has risen to No. 46 on the Official Singles Chart (up to eight places from No. 54 last week).
With this success, Lisa has now become the first single female K-pop singer to ever charge a song for four weeks on the Official Charts Chart. The only K-pop artist in history to charge a song for so long is PSY, who last won the song with his hit 2013 single “Gentleman” (which spent 19 weeks on the chart) eight years ago.
