This is most likely due to Lisa’s solo debut in 2021. On September 10, 2021, Lisa released her debut single album, “LALISA,” with a title track of the same name and a b-sidetrack “MONEY.”

The music video for “LALISA” was released on September 10, 2021. Upon the first 24 hours of its release, “LALISA” amassed 73.6 million views, breaking Taylor Swift’s record for the most-viewed music video by a solo artist in the first 24 hours. Taylor Swift previously held the record for “Me! (feat. Brendon Urie).”

The most likely reason she ranked so high is the hit songs the soloist released in 2021. On January 27, 2021, IU released “Celebrity” as a pre-release single to her album, “LILAC.” “LILAC” was then released on March 25, 2021, and was an immediate success in South Korea. All songs from “LILAC” charted in the top 30 of the Gaon Digital Chart, and the album itself debuted at the top of the Gaon Album Chart.

Older IU songs also started trending on the charts. People took to YouTube to reminisce about IU’s career. Additionally, IU’s song “My Sea” was used on the survival show “Girls Planet 999,” which helped boost the song’s popularity internationally.
