Lisa’s third new title is for most Instagram fans for K-pop artists. As of January 19, 2023, Lisa had 86.3 million followers, increasing to 87 million as of January 26 KST, making her Instagram account the 38th most followed on the platform.

Earlier this week, Lisa earned a Premio Lo Nuestro solo nomination for “SG,” a collaboration with DJ Snake, Megan Thee Stallion and Ozuna.
