BLACKPINK's Lisa has inked a deal with RCA Records. LLOUD, Lisa's new agency, made the announcement on April 10, confirming her partnership with the renowned American label RCA Records.

LLOUD’s announcement about Lisa joining RCA Records

Lisa bid farewell to her longtime agency YG Entertainment last year after her exclusive contract expired. In February of this year, she established her own artist management company, LLOUD. Two months after her opening LLOUD, it was announced that she had also signed a deal with RCA Records which is home to artists like SZA, Doja Cat, Britney Spears, Normani, Tate McRae, and more. 


It is believed that Lisa will release new solo music under RCA Records and retain complete ownership of all her recordings according to the announcement. Meanwhile, although Lisa and the other BLACKPINK members pursued individual endeavors, they all extended their contracts with YG Entertainment for group activities. This implies that Lisa's group commitments with BLACKPINK will continue to be handled by YG Entertainment, while her solo ventures will be managed by LLOUD and RCA Records.
