BLACKPINK Lisa outshines Adele; “LALISA” breaks THIS 7-year-old world record

BLACKPINK member Lisa has eclipsed international artists including Adele after her solo debut.

Amidst BLACKPINK’s immense fame, its members continue to advance their careers, debuting as solo artists. Lisa dominated the global music scene when she released her single album “LALISA” in September 2021.

The album broke several records, and recently broke another world record, previously held by Adele.

In November 2022, BLACKPINK Lisa set a new world record when her “LALISA” topped the Kyrgyz iTunes chart. The milestone immediately took the song to 103 different countries on iTunes.

With that said, the ‘MONEY’ hitmaker set a new record and broke the record Adele set seven years ago with her hits ‘Hello’ and ‘Easy On Me’. Notably, both songs topped the iTunes charts in 102 different countries.

Several international news outlets praised Lisa for her new recognition, saying that she had already achieved a feat unmatched by any K-pop soloist.

Although the new milestone surprised everyone, “LALISA” has actually broken several records since its release.

It debuted at number one on the Gaon Album Chart, instantly becoming the best-selling album by a female solo artist in the chart’s history. After selling over 700,000 copies, she set a new record for highest first-week sales among a female K-pop female artist.
