Lisa from BLACKPINK is the first female K-Pop soloist in history to make the Billboard Pop Radio Airplay Chart.

Look, we knew Lisa was going to cause a stir with her debut – after all, she came, as she said, "to shake the world up". It seems she took this literally, as she has just reached a milestone for female K-pop soloists.

BLACKPINK's Lisa is now the only female K-pop soloist in history to make it onto Billboard's pop airplay chart. For those who didn't know, the Pop Airplay Chart measures weekly plays of songs from the top 40 radio stations in the United States. Lisa's track "Money" entered the charts at number 40 today.

This makes Lisa only the third female K-Pop soloist and the only female K-Pop soloist to be included in the Pop Airplay charts. The only other K-Pop artists to have done this are Psy with his track "Gangnam Style" and BTS & # 39; Suga, who starred in MAX's "Blueberry Eyes".

This isn't the only achievement Money has under its belt – it is also the longest-charted song on both the Billboard 200 and Billboard Global Excl. US charts by a K-pop soloist.

Lisa's solo debut album, Lalisawhich showed her a "personal side" and celebrated her Thai roots, was also registered as a commercial success on its own. In October, the album's title track, "Lalisa," became the fastest K-pop soloist music video to break the 300 million-click mark on YouTube.

"[This album] is all about my name, which is my most confident self," Lisa said at a press conference about the album.
