NEWS ABOUT ‘2NE1’ : PART 2
So, continuing with the news on 2NE1.
We have urgently postponed 2NE1’s 2nd album release date from the original schedule of 12am on February 24th
to 12am on February 26th <which is 0 hour of February 27th>.
The offline album will be released on March 7th as planned.
The reason for the urgent change of date is to release the album on a more special day instead,
as CL’s birthday falls on February 26th, especially because whopping three songs composed and written by CL
for the first time are included in the 2nd album.
I ask for your generosity and understanding for the change.
Details on 2NE1’s titles song?
As this is the first full album released for the first time after several years,
we are ambitious to showcase as many songs as we can,
but since we are at a point where careful selection and focus are required,
we chose two songs for double title songs.
2NE1’s first title song is “COME BACK HOME.”
Many of you would be reminded of the mega-hit “COME BACK HOME”
released by Seotaeji and Boys in 1995,
but 2NE1’s upcoming track is a completely different,
filled with melody and lyrics about yearning for the long-gone lover.
This is a joint work of YG’s main producer TEDDY and other producers,
which encompasses a crossover mixture of R&B, reggae and hip-hop.
The noteworthy feature of the 2nd album is the unplugged version of “COME BACK HOME.”
The two different versions are greatly different from each other,
so we produced two music videos for both songs, which will be released on February 28th simultaneously.
The second title song “GOTTA BE YOU”, a joint work by YG’s producers TEDDY and PK,
is a fast-paced song that leaves an impact through MINZY and BOM’s powerful cry of “Gotta Be You.”
We made the decision to make this the second title song as it has an impression of mainstream taste.
How many music videos will be produced for the 2nd album?
A total of four music videos will be showcased this time.
As mentioned earlier, the two versions of “COME BACK HOME” music videos
will be released simultaneously on February 28th,
and the other double title song “GOTTA BE YOU” will come next,
and the music video of a song titled “HAPPY” filmed in the U.S. will follow.
The track list of 2NE1’s 2nd album will be released today at 10pm.
This is all I have for 2NE1’s album,
and I will be back with information on YG’s new groups that will be revealed this year.
