Lisa’s ‘Rockstar’ Era is here. On Tuesday, the Blackpink star’s management company LLOUD announced that Lisa will be releasing her highly-anticipated single “Rockstar” on June 27.

The company announced “Rockstar” on Instagram posting a cartoonish, electric sound, seemingly teasing the new track. Lisa recently made a TikTok account, where she gained a million followers in just over 2 hours, setting a Guinness World Record.

Lisa’s first two videos on the platform, which tease the new era of music, see Lisa posing for the camera in her OOTD, garnering nearly 20 million likes across both posts. She’s already reached 9.5 million followers on the platform.

‘Rockstar’ will mark the first solo release from Lisa since joining DJ Snake, Ozuna, and Megan Thee Stallion on ‘SG’ back in 2021. She also dropped a pair of singles, ‘Lalisa’ and ‘Money,’ that year. (She performed her solo tracks while Blackpink headlined Coachella last year.)

Lisa signed a solo deal with RCA, which was announced in April. Earlier this month, she teased new music on her social media, writing, “Coming soon: Lisa.”

“I’m super excited to be joining the RCA family and I am confident they are the best team to create a bigger movement in my solo career,” Lisa said in April. “Looking forward to showing the world everything we have been preparing.” It was revealed at the time that the deal allows Lisa to retain ownership of her recordings.

Earlier this year, Blackpink decided not to re-sign individually with YG, giving them more control over the directions of their solo careers, including Lisa’s upcoming role in Season Three of The White Lotus.
