Lisa of Blackpink sets record on iTunes chart
Lisa of Blackpink topped the iTunes top songs chart in Micronesia, pushing the total number of regions to 101, a tie for the record for a female musician.
Her solo single “LaLisa” climbed to the No. 1 spot on the chart on Wednesday, and she became the second female artist ever to top the chart in more than 100 regions, after Adele. Lisa also is the first female solo act to top the iTunes worldwide chart.
“LaLisa” is the titular track from her first solo EP, which came out in September last year. It debuted on Billboard’s Hot 100 at No. 84 and topped the iTunes top songs chart in 72 regions upon release.
Separately, Blackpink rolled out its second studio album, “Born Pink,” last week and performed the main track “Shut Down” for the first time at Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday in the United States. It landed atop the iTunes top songs chart in 43 regions. DC/RA
