Song meaning of Rockstar by Lisa


First part of the song appears to be a subdued homage to her full name on her 2021 debut album Lalisa, as well as an acceptance of her true self beneath her newly discovered rockstar image. "Lisa, can you teach me Japanese?" she asks, demonstrating her ability to speak multiple languages in order to imitate others who are more advanced than her.


The English song has a hip-hop influence, but the Thai artist also includes a few allusions to her native nation. She yells out BKK in the pre-chorus, which is an acronym for Bangkok's airport and the place where she recorded the song's mesmerising video.


Ryan Tedder and Sam Homaee produced the song, while Lisa, Brittany Amaradio, James Essien, Lucy Healey, Ryan Tedder, and Sam Homaee wrote the lyrics.


Lyrics of Rockstar by Lisa


Gold teeth sitting on the dash, she a rockstar

Make your favorite singer wanna rap, baby, lala

"Lisa, can you teach me Japanese?" I said, "Hai, hai"

That's my life, life, baby, I'm a rockstar

 

Been on a mission, boy, they call me "Catch and Kill"

I'm stealing diamonds, make them chase me for the thrill

Been MIA, BKK so pretty

Every city that I go's my city

 

Gold teeth sitting on the dash, she a rockstar

Make your favorite singer wanna rap, baby, lala

"Lisa, can you teach me Japanese?" I said, "Hai, hai"

That's my life, life, baby, I'm a rockstar

 

I'm a rockstar

I'm a rockstar

It's not hype, hype, baby, make you rock hard

 

Make a wish, babe, whatchu wanna do?

Dippin' outta big cities like a ponzu

It's a fast life, it's an attitude

Put it on the calendar and tell me when to come through

Yes, yes, I can spend it

Yes, yes, no pretendin'

Tight dress, LV sent it

Oh shit, Lisa reppin'

 

Been on a mission, boy, they call me "Catch and Kill"

I'm stealing diamonds, make them chase me for the thrill

Been MIA, BKK so pretty

Every city that I go's my city

 

Gold teeth sitting on the dash, she a rockstar

Make your favorite singer wanna rap, baby, lala

"Lisa, can you teach me Japanese?" I said, "Hai, hai"

That's my life, life, baby, I'm a rockstar

 

Gold teeth sitting on the dash, she a rockstar

Make your favorite singer wanna rap, baby, lala

"Lisa, can you teach me Japanese?" I said, "Hai, hai"

That's my life, life, baby, I'm a rockstar

 

I'm a rockstar

I'm a rockstar

It's not hype, hype, baby, make you rock hard

 

I'm a rockstar

I'm a rockstar

It's not hype, hype, baby, make you rock hard

 

Ooh, and the music going

Ooh, and the girls are posing

Ooh, don't it get you in a mood?

It's not hype, hype, baby, I'm a rockstar
