The youngest member of the globally-recognized group is finally making her solo debut, following the release of Rosé’s R earlier this year.
The Star: Lalisa Manoban
Even though this is Lisa’s first time working on a music project outside of BLACKPINK, she certainly hasn’t held back from taking on projects on her own. Lisa has seen success with LILI’S FILM, her YouTube channel that boasts over 8 million subscribers, and has participated as a mentor in the Chinese program “Youth With You.” Lisa has even taken the fashion world by storm as a brand ambassador for CELINE and Bvlgari, and is a global ambassador for MAC Cosmetics.
