EXO has made a ferocious comeback with their video teaser for Wolf (in Korean; The Wolf and the Beauty), the title track off their first studio album XOXO (Kiss&Hug).
Wolf utilizes the unique blend of dubstep and hip-hop in order to create a powerful dance beat. The combination of sound and witty lyrics enhances the uniqueness but does not stray from the storytelling of a reminiscent tale in the song.
The teaser showcases a more intimidating and beastly side of the EXO members. Mimicking the behavior of a wild wolf, each member moves stealthily on the ground and even charges at fellow members.
To add further excitement to the long awaited EXO comeback, EXO will have their first comeback stage on May 30 on Mnet M! Countdown.

It is confirmed that Big Bang members G-Dragon and Taeyang will be featuring in CL’s (2NE1‘s leader) first solo music video that is due to be released on the 28th of May. YG Entertainment artists are known for their great bond and support for one another. This tradition can be seen in G-Dragon and Taeyang’s appearance in JinuSean’s music video for Phone Number back in 2004. Recently Se7en, Teddy and Taeyang also did a cameo in G-Dragon’s music video for MichiGO.
It is reported that the genre for CL’s solo song is not easily heard within the domestic music industry, which is the ‘Dougie’ genre with a dub step sound and will be of the latest style in the hip-hop genre. For years, the Korean music industry emphasizes girl groups with a cute or sexy concept. However, as a female rapper, CL’s concept is the opposite of what the industry usually promotes and there is a lot of anticipation from her upcoming solo debut.
CL’s solo debut will be concurrently going against strong female solo singers like Lee Hyori, Seo In Young and IVY. Despite the intense competition, CL was given confidence and extra boost from YG’s president, Yang Hyun Seok‘s words of encouragement: “Even if you’re last, enjoy the moment with all your heart.”
This will be CL’s first solo venture since debuting as the leader of 2NE1 back in 2009. It is expected that her debut will amaze and impact the music industry.
