K-pop star Jennie, of wildly popular group Blackpink, made her solo debut on Monday. Her song is called “Solo,” and it lit up social media and rushed up streaming charts.

The song has over 18.7 million views on YouTube as of Tuesday morning. Jennie, who is 22 years old, is also the first Korean female soloist to hit iTunes Top 10 in the U.S. She also hit No. 1 on Melon, a popular South Korean music streaming service.

The lyrics are supposed to portray Jennie as a “vulnerable” but also a “powerful, independent woman,” she told the Korea Times.

Her fans are obsessed with her beautiful outfits in the music video.

Others are celebrating how amazing she looks.

Jennie revealed her “Solo” performance at Blackpink’s first Seoul show at the Olympic Gymnastics Arena over the weekend, according to the Korea Times.

Blackpink debuted in 2016 with hits “Whitsle” and “Boombayah,” which has received over 417 million views on YouTube. The two songs also hit No. 1 on the world digital songs chart, according to Billboard.

Blackpink will have its first world tour, “2019 In Your Area,” from January to March in Bangkok, Jakarta, Hong Kong, Manila, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Taipei.
