Lisa’s solo project updates are cryptic
The next member to be reported as having a solo outing is Lisa. Lisa may have given fans a glimpse while making some new music. In July this year, Lisa uploaded two images to her Instagram story, raising suspicion about her solo activities. The second story of the two she posted was the sound wave image showing music being worked on with the caption “What’s my name?”, Possibly alluding to the song’s title.
Earlier last month, YG Entertainment confirmed Lisa will be making her solo debut this summer in her statement to South Korean media. YG has also confirmed that she will be shooting a music video this week in July, which is due out in the coming weeks. French producer DJ Snake also tweeted in May for collaborating with Lisa on a new song and said the track was over. The thread of tweets is now deleted, which adds to the uncertainty of its next outings.
Fans want more updates from YG
Fans have spoken repeatedly about the mistreatment of Blackpink members by their agency, where they have complained that artists are not being used to their potential as singers, rappers and music producers, but have them. used as lucrative assets for the company. Jisoo is said to be last in the group’s solo activities without any update or mention of his solo music business.
