KEY POINTS

  • Lisa's "Money" took the No. 40 spot on Billboard's Pop Airplay chart
  • Previously, Psy and BTS' Suga were able to land spots on the chart
  • Blackpink also made it to the chart in 2020 with the track "Ice Cream"

Proving that she is indeed the most successful Blackpink member, Lisa Manobal has made history again by becoming the first female Korean soloist to enter Billboard's Pop Airplay chart.

The 24-year-old singer's second single, "Money," took the No. 40 spot on the Pop Airplay chart Tuesday for the week ending on Dec. 18. Billboard's Pop Airplay Chart measures weekly plays on mainstream Top 40 radio stations across the United States. The chart is currently ruled by Adele's "Easy On Me," which has spent two weeks at No. 1.

No other female K-pop soloist has ever made it to the chart. Previously, two K-pop male solo acts were able to land spots on the chart. Psy entered the chart in 2012 with his massive hit "Gangnam Style" and BTS' Suga was also able to get on the list as a featured artist on MAX's "Blueberry Eyes" in 2020.

As a group, Blackpink entered the Pop Airplay chart in 2020 with "Ice Cream," their collaboration with Selena Gomez.

Meanwhile, "Money" extended its presence on Billboard's Global 200 and Global Excl. U.S. chart this week.

In total, the catchy tune has spent 13 weeks on both charts. "Money" is at No. 30 on the Global Excl. U.S. chart and No. 53 on the Global 200.

In addition, the Thai native's first solo single, "Lalisa," is still going strong on the playlist as it sits comfortably at No. 198 on the Global Excl. U.S. chart.

While two other Blackpink members, Jennie Kim and Roseanne Park (Rosé), also had successful solo albums prior to Lisa's launch as a solo artist, the latter has more success on Billboard charts.

After the launch of her solo album "Lalisa" in September, the album's lead track of the same name ranked at No. 84 on Billboard Hot 100. In the same month, the album ranked at No. 2 in the Global 200 chart and before the month closed, "Lalisa" was at No. 2 on the Global 200 Excl. U.S. chart.

Lisa recovered from COVID-19 earlier this month after she tested positive on Nov. 24 following her appearances in the U.S.

She spent 10 days under home quarantine and marked her recovery with a series of throwback snaps from her trip to Los Angeles, including a snippet of her runway debut for fashion brand Celine.

In a video shared on Instagram, the youngest member of Blackpink was seen walking on an observatory wearing a green varsity jacket. Close-up shots of her face in black and white were also featured in the clip.
