“Christmas present for my BLINKS Have a wonderful holiday,” Lisa wrote on Instagram alongside a black-and-white image of herself with the song’s title.

In the music video for the song, the rapper and dancer receives a small ribbon-wrapped note and single rose before hopefully wandering the streets of Paris in a white fur-lined coat. The clip ends with Lisa flashing a huge smile as she accepts another rose from a mystery suitor as the evening concludes.

Spears’ “My Only Wish (This Year),” originally released on the 2000 compilation, Platinum Christmas, peaked at No. 81 on the Billboard Hot 100 in January 2015. The holiday banger — about having Santa deliver a lover for the holiday — also ranked No. 95 on Billboard‘s 100 Best Christmas Songs of All Time staff list.

In November, Lisa’s track “Money” became the first K-pop track by a solo artist to reach 1 billion streams on Spotify. The song, released as the second track from her 2021 solo EP, Lalisa, marks her fourth solo achievement with Guinness World Records.

On Tuesday (Dec. 26), Lisa will take part in BLACKPINK: A VR Encore, an immersive virtual reality experience stemming from the special finale concert of the Born Pink World Tour.

“I think the fans will enjoy the playful aspects of the VR concert,” Lisa told Billboard ahead of the concert. “It’s like a new, fun experience for them. I hope they can feel the warmth and energy of our performances, even in this new format.”

The 70-minute concert will feature BLACKPINK performing Billboard Hot 100 hits such as “Shut Down,” “Pink Venom” and “How You Like That” like never before. Utilizing Meta Quest 3 headsets, the show takes place in Meta Horizon Worlds’ new Music Valley venue.

BLACKPINK: A VR Encore premieres for free, exclusively in VR on Dec. 26, at 5 p.m. PT in Meta Horizon Worlds.
