CL Reveals Details About 2NE1′s Next Album and Her Forthcoming Solo Album
The leader of the K-Pop phenomenon [2NE1’s CL] discusses the group’s next album, her solo ambitions, and goals that go beyond music.
When K-pop girl-group phenomenon 2NE1 came to America in August 2012, the timing seemed a little off. They had just released the single “I Love You” (a domestic smash off the bat that debuted at No. 1 on the K-Pop Hot 100) and promised a Korean album to follow in October. Yet, in late July, the girls embarked on a world tour with stops in both hemispheres. When would there be time to finish an album?
“I Love You” indicated big things to come from the record. They had never sung about the topic of love before and portrayed a vulnerable side that juxtaposed their fierce, feisty style. Yet the album’s plans dissipated with no real news given about the state of 2NE1—until the group’s leader, CL, returned to the U.S. for New York Fashion Week in early February.

[NEWS] ‘I Love You’ Lands at #1 on Billboard’s K-pop Hot100 Chart
Just under a year ago in August 2011 Billboard opened their K-pop Hot 100 Chart to track popular songs in Korea. It is based on digital sales via leading websites as well as downloads from mobile service sites using an industry-standard formula and the most credible music data sources within South Korea.
The top 10 of the K-pop Hot 100 according to data from July 5th to the 11th has been revealed and 2NE1‘s new single ‘I Love You‘ came in at #1. It beat out last week’s number one, Sistar‘s ‘Lovin U‘ and T-ara‘s ‘Day by Day‘.
The full Top 100 for this week will be released later today so look out for an update with Billboard’s weekly article at that time. The article will also inform us if 2NE1′s new song appeared on any other Billboard charts.
Congratulations to our girls and I’m sure that this #1 will only be the first of many to come during this promotional period!
