Besides being the ‘maknae’ (or youngest member) of arguably the hottest girl group on the planet BLACKPINK, Lisa has paved her own dazzling solo career –– earning accolades left and right and by being the ambassador of luxury fashion houses Celine and Bvlgari.
Back in 2021, she was the third BLACKPINK member to release solo music content with her single ‘Lalisa’ and it was the most-viewed YouTube music video by a solo artist in 24 hours, hitting 73.6 million views. It also set a record for being the Most viewed YouTube music video in 24 hours by a solo K-pop artist.
The Guinness World Records have now confirmed that the talented K-pop artist has now added three more record titles to her collection as a solo artist, making her the holder of a total of five records!
