“Goodbye…Boss. I won’t forget you. Don’t forget me and rest in peace. Because of you, I was happy the last five years. Thank you. I’m sorry for not knowing that you were sick sooner. I’m sorry that I did not treat you very well… I wanted to go to the Han River with you. Run as much as you want there. I love you Boss. I miss you.”
May Boss rest in peace.

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.
