There was so much hype around this solo debut that you’d have to be living under a rock not to hear about it. Lisa’s the third Blackpink member to have her solo debut, and it wasn’t too far off from what I was expecting.
I expected a fire rap verse, which Lisa delivered. I expected the lyrics to be about how badass and awesome she is, which, well, met the bare minimum. I expected this to have a better instrumental.
