'LALISA' is a humble respect to Lisa's Thai origins as well as a celebration of the global K pop superstar.
BLACKPINK's Lisa revealed in a recent interview with Billboard that she officially changed her birth name on the advice of a fortune teller for "good luck."
Lisa's birth name is Pranpriya Manoban, which loosely translates to "loving soul" for those unfamiliar.
She changed her name to Lalisa, which means "one who is praised," and is the ideal name for a future celebrity.
You might be wondering what this has to do with Lisa's debut.
After all, it's Lisa's solo debut album, which is a humble homage to her much-loved Thai roots as well as a celebration of the global K-pop star, BLACKPINK's world-renowned diamond maknae - Lalisa Manoban!
On September 10 at 9:30 a.m. IST, Lisa made her highly anticipated debut with the single album 'LALISA' (1 pm KST).
There are two songs on the single album: the title tune 'LALISA' and the b-side track 'MONEY.'
