CL Features in Diplo’s “Doctor Pepper” Before US Debut
[조이뉴스24=이미영기자] CL from YG’s 2NE1 is attracting much attention by featuring in the world-renown DJ Diplo’s single “Doctor Pepper.”
At 11pm on May 22 CL’s featuring was unveiled through America’s music magazine “The Fader.”
CL previously posted a 10-second teaser audio of the recording of “Doctor Pepper” on her social media with the caption “DOCTOR PEPPER’, ‘DIPLO X CL X RIFF RAFF X OGMACO.” The short audio clip features a unique repetitive artwork of different artists and her rapping.
“Doctor Pepper” is of Atlanta-style rap that captures Diplo’s unique trap-beat and CL’s powerful rapping. Other than CL, artists like Riff Raff and OG Maco, who brought a sensation to American hip-hop with last year’s debut song “U Guessed It”, from Diplo’s label Mad Decent featured in the song as well.
At the interview with “The Fader,” CL told a small behind-the-scene story: she was angry at Diplo for cancelling their session. She was drinking Doctor Pepper and was writing a song so that she could go home early. But Diplo ended up loving the song.
CL and Diplo had already collaborated in the 2014 Style Icon Awards last year. In March they performed with Skrillex and Puff Daddy for the ending of the UMF in Miami, arousing much attention in the global pop world.
“Doctor Paper” was unveiled exclusively 2-hour advanced on The Fader website (www.thefader.com), which was then followed by Sound Cloud (www.soundcloud.com). The track will be unveiled on iTunes and different sites on May 26.
CL is gearing up for her upcoming debut in the US. On June 12 and 13 CL will be in Seoul at the Olympic Main Stadium for UMF Korea to meet the domestic fans. On June 17 she will be throwing the first ball at the Major League for the game between the LA Dodger (with Ryu Hyun Jin) and Texas Ranger’s (with Choo Shin Soo).
