YG Entertainment recently introduced the baddest female of the company, and it’s none other than CL!
The leader of 2NE1 is gearing up for a solo debut and has recently unveiled the music video of her title song, The Baddest Female. The music video highlighted CL’s strong rapping skills, as well as the sexy and classy style the singer is known for.
In addition to these talents, BIGBANG‘s G-Dragon and Taeyang, Lydia Paek, Masta Wu, Mademoiselle Yulia and Teddy all made cameos to show their support for CL’s solo debut.
Check out the video below:
We’re very excited for CL’s upcoming solo debut! Stay tuned to hellokpop for more updates.
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.
Recently, fans came across a teaser video of 2NE1 leader CL titled 2NE1 LOVES Vol.1 – CL LOVES on a brand new website 2NE1loves.com.
The teaser video was filmed in black and white with background music from 2NE1 track I’m Busy from their first album To Anyone. It features CL wearing a classy and yet edgy clothing. Besides that, the video also featured the fellow members of 2NE1, hinting that more teaser videos are to be anticipated by fans!
Furthermore, a staff member of MY Boon, Jae Hyuk Choi tweeted “2ne1loves.com Check Out 2NE1!! C.. CL.” and has left fans speculating the teaser is linked with a collaboration for a clothing brand. MY Boon is a fashion store in Seoul where fellow label mate G-Dragon has launched his own custom items line last year.
