Eagle-eyed fans noticed three transgender influencers — Chinnawat Promsri, Bruze Kachi-sarah and Aëffy — featured throughout the clip. Alongside shots of LISA dancing her way through Bangkok, the three influencers appear throughout the video to pose for the camera dressed in their best evening wear.

Chinnawat Promsri — known to her fans as Chinni — is best known for sharing viral videos of herself speaking about her experience as a trans woman living in Thailand. Bruze Kachi-sarah, meanwhile, recently earned the title of first runner-up in Miss Tiffany 2024, a long-running beauty pageant in Thailand for trans women. Finally, Aëffy works with Thai media organization GMMTV, and regularly posts photos from the GMMTV set on her Instagram. All three posted clips of the “Rockstar” video to Instagram Stories after the video’s release.

Fans were quick to point out the excellent timing of LISA’s new music video — earlier this month, Thailand’s senate passed a landmark piece of legislation legalizing same-sex marriage, making it the first Southeast Asian country to do so. “Lisa putting the spotlight on the LGBTQ community & her home is so so special to me,” one fan wrote on X. Another added: “THE LGBTQIA+ REPRESENTATION????????? SHE WOULD NEVER BE ABLE TO DO SUCH S–T IN THE KPOP WORLD. LISA THE WOMAN THAT YOU ARE.”

The new video and song arrives after LISA signed a blockbuster solo deal with RCA Records back in April. “I’m super excited to be joining the RCA family, and I am confident they are the best team to create a bigger movement in my solo career,” she said in a statement at the time. “Looking forward to showing the world everything we have been preparing.”
