BLACKPINK’S LISA SOLO DEBUT REPORTEDLY EXPECTED IN JUNE
Written by Cheska Alferez
Lisa from Blackpink is likely the next member to make her solo debut in June.
Lisa has been rumored to be releasing her first solo album this year for months, and according to industry sources on Monday, the release date has been scheduled for June.
On April 16, Harper’s Bazaar Thailand shared a photo of the Thai-born idol on their Instagram page, revealing in the accompanying caption that the singer will make her highly anticipated debut as a soloist later this June.
An official from the group’s label YG Entertainment told the Korea Herald by phone that “Lisa is still working hard (on the album)” but declined to confirm the release date, stating schedules will be announced through an official notice.
Images of the company’s supposed comeback schedules went viral last week. According to the paper, Lisa will make her debut in June of 2021 in the second quarter.
YG announced late last year that Lisa, along with Rosé, was preparing solo material.
For her solo debut, Lisa is expected to work with DJ Snake. Via a fan interaction on Instagram, the DJ recently announced that he and Lisa had collaborated on something. DJ Snake announced in January 2020 that he was working on a project with the entire BLACKPINK community, but it never materialized.
The Thai singer will be the third Blackpink member to release a solo album. The group’s rapper, Jennie, was first to release a single, “Solo,” in November 2018, followed by Rosé, who released her two-track EP “R” in March.
Lisa’s solo material has been long-awaited by fans, especially with the successful debut of her two bandmates.
In other BLACKPINK news, the group recently reached 60million subscribers on YouTube. This makes them the second most-subscribed musician in the world after Justin Bieber and the biggest account based in South Korea.
