Blackpink's Lisa drops teaser of first solo album 'Lalisa', announces fan sign event
After keeping fans hanging for months, Blackpink Lisa’s solo debut is finally right around the corner. The news about Lisa going solo broke the internet as YG Entertainment released a teaser poster announcing Lisa’s first solo venture outside of Blackpink's group activities. Lisa is the third member of Blackpink to go solo. Following Jennie, who released her solo single album in 2018 titled 'SOLO', there was no news about the other members of Blackpink going solo, until Rosé became the second member of the group to release her solo project that had two singles - 'On The Ground' and 'Gone' for her album 'R.'
Lisa has become the latest member of Blackpink to release her solo album - a single album just like Jennie and Rosé's. On August 23, YG Entertainment announced Lisa's solo album and fans took a sigh of relief. With the album titled as Lisa's birth name, 'Lalisa', set to release on September 10, 2021, YG Entertainment has given more updates on the release of Lisa's first solo single.
Virtual fan sign with Lisa
YG Entertainment first released solo photos of Lisa to announce her solo debut. On August 26, YG Entertainment took to Twitter to announce a virtual fan sign with Lisa and her most dedicated fans. The news said that a fan signing event will be held virtually where Lisa will meet fans on a video call through Line App and talk to them for 1 minute and 30 seconds. The 90-second video call will also have Lisa signing an album for every fan who won an entry to the signing event. These signed albums will be sent to the fans.
In order to win an entry into the event, fans must purchase Lisa's solo album from the online shopping mall Ktown4u between August 26 and September 9.

In the teaser, Lisa is seen sitting in the dark, and white clouds pass by. She is seen wearing what only seems like the same outfit as her teaser photos but close-up shots make it seem like a different bodysuit. The clouds pass by too quickly and it is suddenly dark. Lisa's body has a red filter over it and there is lightning around her. The camera starts zooming out of her face as lightning continues and an ominous sound is playing in the back.
