“LALISA Love Me,” the chorus of BLACKPINK member Lisa’s debut solo, is what fans will hum all day long after the release of her song. It is grunge, with a pop of vibrance that speaks to Lisa’s energy when on stage.

The song itself looked more like a manifestation of all of Lisa’s identities and characteristics.

From her love for everything vintage, her eye for fashion, to her Thai heritage, Lisa owned all of it in the LALISA music video. She owned all her sides and unapologetically asked viewers to love her for what she was.

This unapologetic attitude surfaces throughout the video of LALISA and draws the audience further into the song. The lyrics and rap are a mix of Korean and English.

She spoke about shaking up the world, burning up loud emotions in the song. It seemed a response to all the antis, the racism she faced, and the comments that critiqued everything about her.

The idea of using her Thai heritage, something that has made her a subject of racist attacks, is a clap back at all the trolls. In the video, she wears headgear native to a Thai dance form, and the sharp finger rings are a brilliant accessory to the whole look.

The BLACKPINK idol has made herself clear with her solo debut. She is who she is, and fans love her for it.

The daredevil in her was liberated, seemingly showing Lisa breaking away from everything that had kept her chained so far.
