Lalisa Manobal aka Lisa from the global phenomenon girl group BLACKPINK recently took over Spotify‘s Dope AF Playlist and shared some of her favorite songs. She’s been pretty busy with the release of her solo songs “Lalisa” and “Money,” Lisa still had time to curate a surprising playlist.
According to NYLON Manila, the playlist contains a bunch of female artists and a handful of them are Filipinas. With Lisa being a global superstar, we weren’t totally sure what kind of music we’d see on the playlist but we definitely love her wide range of taste in music. Each track shows a side of Lisa’s style as an artist. She can do pop, hip-hop, and R&B. Check out which of your favorite Filipina artists Lisa included who are Dope AF!
