Lisa – Lalisa

Lisa – Lalisa

The facts speak for themselves: BLACKPINK’s LISA, arguably the most popular member of the most popular K-pop girl group, is also the most-followed K-pop star on Instagram and the most-subscribed-to female K-pop artist on YouTube —known to the world for her singing, rapping, and dancing talent.

So, naturally, when she announced a solo debut separate from her namesake group, just like JENNIE’s blockbuster “SOLO” and ROSÉ’s charming guitar-pop EP R before her, the world took notice. “LALISA” is LISA’s first track, an explosive 2010s-era hip-hop-pop throwback crafted by BLACKPINK’s longtime collaborators Teddy and Bekuh Boom. On the B-side, recorded entirely in English, is “MONEY,” highlighting her distinctive flow (straight out of the school of Nicki Minaj). It’s a celebration of, well, money, a tight articulation of rap’s fiscal aspirations.

(Lyrics):
[Intro]
know just from looking at my back
When it gets dark, the light shines pink
When the bright light wakes me up
I shake up the world (Hey!)
La, la-la-la, la, la-la-la
La, la-la-la, la, la-la-la
What’s my name? What’s my name? (Hey!)
La, la-la-la, la, la-la-la
La, la-la-la, la, la-la-la
What’s my name? What’s my name?

[Verse 1]
I empty my head completely
And burn the loud emotions
Burn, burn, burn
I’m the champagne that’ll quench your thirst at that moment
Sip, sip, drink me up
Yes, lift up my body higher

[Pre-Chorus]
Want to ring the alarm
Tell it to the world, kiss my name

[Chorus]
Say, “Lalisa, love me, Lalisa, love me” (Hey!)
Call me, “Lalisa, love me, Lalisa, love me” (Hey!)
Oh-ooh, know the attitude
What more do want?
The loudest in the room (Hoo! Hoo!)
Say, “Lalisa, love me, Lalisa, love me” (Hey!)
Call me, “Lalisa, love me, Lalisa, love me” (Hey!)
Oh-ooh, know the attitude
What more do want?
The loudest in the room (Hoo!)
[Verse 2]
Baby, get the megaphone, put it on speaker
I said I can’t hear you, so need to speak up
Put that shit on stereo, everyone else on very low
Protect it like a barrier, promise there’s nothing scarier
Than me if anybody coming gunnin’ for my man
Gonna catch a case, gun up in my hand
Bam, bam, bam! Hit after hit though
Rocks in my wrist, so I call ’em the Flintstones

[Pre-Chorus]
Ring the alarm
Tell it to the world, kiss my name

[Chorus]
Say, “Lalisa, love me, Lalisa, love me” (Hey!)
Call me, “Lalisa, love me, Lalisa, love me” (Hey!)
Oh-ooh, know the attitude
What more do want?
The loudest in the room (Hoo! Hoo!)
Say, “Lalisa, love me, Lalisa, love me” (Hey!)
Call me, “Lalisa, love me, Lalisa, love me” (Hey!)
Oh-ooh, you know the attitude
What more do you want?
The loudest in the room (Hoo!)
[Bridge]
I’m incomparable, you gon’ still love me nonetheless
You gon’ still love me
You need some L-A-L-I-S-A
Remember my name that’s standing right in front of you
some L-A-L-I-S-A
(Hoo!)

[Verse 3]
You cannot see me, even though I show you all my ways (No)
From Thailand to Korea, and now here, went for the throat (The throat)
Being the greatest of all time ain’t fantasy (Woo!)
Jet black and pink crown belongs to we (BLACKPINK!)
Lalisa, Lalisa, Lalisa, I am standing above the sky
Lalisa, Lalisa, Lalisa, they want me
Lalisa, Lalisa, Lalisa, catch me if you can
Lalisa, Lalisa, Lalisa, Lalisa, Lalisa

[Chorus]
Say, “Lalisa, love me, Lalisa, love me” (Hey!)
Call me, “Lalisa, love me, Lalisa, love me” (Hey!)
Oh-ooh, you know the attitude
What more do you want?
The loudest in the room (Hoo! Hoo!)
Say, “Lalisa, love me, Lalisa, love me” (Hey!)
Call me, “Lalisa, love me, Lalisa, love me” (Hey!)
Oh-ooh, you know the attitude
What more do you want?
The loudest in the room (Hoo!)
