Since forming in 2016, BLACKPINK have arguably become the world's biggest girl band.

However, as well as establishing themselves as the most successful quartet in the music industry, the band's members have also seen increasing solo success.

Lisa was the third member to release solo content with her single "LaLisa" dropping in late 2021 and becoming the most viewed YouTube music video by a solo artist in 24 hours with 73.6 million views.

And now Guinness World Records can confirm that in 2022, Lisa achieved three more record titles to add to her collection.

Lisa has become the first solo K-pop winner at the MTV Video Music Awards as well as the first solo K-pop winner at the MTV Europe Music Awards.

At the MTV VMA's, Lisa came first in the category of Best K-pop Video; an award which had been exclusively won by BTS since it's introduction in 2019.

BTS were also the previous winners in the Best K-Pop category at the EMA's in 2021 before Lisa completed a historic double.

BLACKPINK as a whole also won an award for Best Metaverse Performance for their performance of new single "Ready For Love" in the video game PUBG [PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds] Mobile, gaining an additional Guinness World Records title for being the first winners of the award.

As well as cleaning up at the MTV awards, Lisa has also been awarded the title of most followers on Instagram for a K-pop artist with 86.3 million followers as of 19 January 2023.

This makes her the 38th most followed account on the platform, with Cristiano Ronaldo being the most followed individual with 538 million followers.

All four individual members of South Korea’s BLACKPINK have at least 66 million followers on Instagram, while the group's joint account has racked up 52 million followers.

Born in Buriram, Thailand, Lisa moved to South Korea in 2011 before joining Jennie, Rose and Jisoo as BLACKPINK in 2016 ahead of the release of their debut album.

Her first solo project was announced in April 2021, with filming occurring in July and the release of the aforementioned single "LaLisa" on September 10, 2021.

Current records held by BLACKPINK as of January 2023 include most subscribers for a band on YouTube as well as becoming the first K-pop group to reach No.1 on the UK albums chart (female) and the first K-pop group to reach No.1 on the US albums chart (female).

Also, the quartet have previously held Guinness World Records titles such as the most viewed YouTube video in 24 hours and the most viewed music video in 24 hours, however these records are now held by fellow K-pop band BTS for their single "Dynamite".

We look forward to seeing what records BLACKPINK and their members break throughout the rest of 2023.
