Songfacts®:

  • Popular K-pop artists are on the whole more lyrically conservative than their American counterpoints, but this solo single by Blackpink's Lisa finds her indulging in western rap braggadocio and debauchery.

    The song finds Lisa flashing her cash:

    Dolla' bills, dolla' bills
    Watch it fallin' for me
    I love the way that feels


    Booty shaking, and stripping:

    Twerking, twerking, when I buy the things I like
    Dolla', dollas dropping on my ass tonight
  • Blackpink writers and producers Teddy Park, Bekuh Boom, R. Tee, 24 and Vince penned the song. Teddy Park also produced the track, building it around a leisurely horn loop.
  • Lisa released this as a debut solo single, alongside "Lalisa." She told Billboard that as soon as Teddy Park played her the demo, she wanted it as her first solo song.
