BLACKPINK's Lisa Sets New Guinness World Record With 'MONEY'

In the world of K-pop, Lisa has become a true trailblazer, and her latest achievement is nothing short of monumental. The K-pop sensation, best known as a member of BLACKPINK , has added yet another feather to her cap by setting a new Guinness World Record with her chart-topping hit "MONEY."

This catchy track, which originally debuted as a B-side to her solo debut single " LALISA ," recently became the first K-pop song by a solo artist to reach an astonishing 1 billion streams on Spotify .

Lisa's journey to this record-breaking moment began on September 10, 2021, when "MONEY" was first released. It was initially intended as a B-side track, but its immense popularity soon led to its standalone release as her second solo single on November 9, 2021. Less than two years later, "MONEY" has resonated with fans worldwide, amassing over 1 billion Spotify streams.

The significance of this achievement becomes even clearer when you consider Lisa's remarkable standing within the music industry. With a monthly Spotify listenership of 10.68 million, she's undeniably a force to be reckoned with. As of September 21, 2023, "MONEY" had garnered an astonishing 1,002,683,408 streams, surpassing even BLACKPINK's chart-topping hit "How You Like That," which had reached 855.7 million streams by that date.

Lisa's influence extends well beyond Spotify. The music video for "MONEY" has proven to be a global sensation, accumulating a staggering 904 million views on BLACKPINK's YouTube channel. Alongside her fellow BLACKPINK members, Jisoo, Jennie , and Rosé, Lisa has consistently made headlines by shattering records and pushing the boundaries of K-pop.

As a group, BLACKPINK boasts an impressive list of achievements, including being the most-streamed female group on Spotify with a remarkable 8.88 billion streams as of March 3, 2023. They've also claimed the title of the first K-pop group to secure the No.1 spot on both the UK and US albums charts with " Born Pink " in September and October 2022, respectively.

Furthermore, BLACKPINK has left an indelible mark on the digital landscape. They hold records for the most subscribers for a band on YouTube, boasting 60.3 million subscribers as of April 22, 2021. Their music channel is the most viewed on YouTube among groups, garnering an impressive 30.1 million views as of April 12, 2023.

Lisa herself has been a source of inspiration for her fans. She made history as the first solo K-pop artist to win at the MTV Video Music Awards for her song "LALISA" on August 28, 2022. Additionally, Lisa's social media presence has soared to new heights, with a staggering 90.7 million followers on Instagram as of March 24, 2023, making her the K-pop artist with the most followers on the platform.

While Lisa's solo career has undoubtedly been a meteoric success, it's essential to acknowledge the groundbreaking achievements of other K-pop acts. BTS, for instance, was the first to break the 1 billion streams barrier on Spotify with their hit "Dynamite" in July 2021, setting a precedent that they've since repeated with "Butter," "My Universe" (featuring Coldplay), and "Boy with Luv" (featuring Halsey).

Lisa's journey to becoming a world record holder for "MONEY" on Spotify is a testament to her unwavering dedication and talent. Alongside her fellow BLACKPINK members, she continues to redefine the boundaries of K-pop, inspiring fans and fellow artists alike. Congratulations to Lisa for etching her name in K-pop history once again!
