US Fuse TV Spotlights 2NE1 ~ “Cannot Help Loving Them”
[OSEN=Kim Gyeongju] US FUSE TV made headlines of 2NE1’s recently released regular 2nd album.
In last 27, FUSE TV generally introduced 2NE1’s second album ‘CRUSH’ and analyzed 2NE1’s 9 strengths.
FUSE TV introduced 2NE1 as “it has contributed to raise K-pop’s international status and had successfully completed its world tour as the first Korean girl group, and worked with Will.i.am, having 6.4 millions of facebook followers and 2.1 million You tube subscribers. The TV described its new album ‘CRUSH’, “Final master piece of new challenge and experiment”.
First reason why people have to love ‘CRUSH’ is ‘Returning to Their Roots’. Most listeners’ introduction to 2NE1 comes via the ferocious “I Am the Best,” arguably their signature tune. From the first notes of album opener “Crush,” it’s clear that the girls are back. While the quartet played around with reggae pop and acoustic ballads in past singles like “Falling in Love”, this feels like the statement 2NE1 needed to truly make a comeback.
The second reason is ‘Reggae/Trap Hybrid Lead Single “Come Back Home”.’ Crush’s lead single “Come Back Home” mashes two seemingly disparate genres and makes them into one smokin’ single. Starting with a bouncy beat, the girls croon about losing a lover, asking their baby to “come back home” until the single’s production flips into a heavy trap beat. The ambitious song should stand up well next to past 2NE1 singles.
The third reason is ‘We’re Getting Four Music Videos!!!’ and fourth is “Potential to Sell A Lot”. FUSE TV said, “As one of the top K-pop acts to make moves Stateside, Crush raced into the Top 10 of the iTunes Albums chart despite no American promo. Still, with four music videos already planned, the LP could be a steady-seller versus falling off the chart after one week.”
There are also others reasons: “2NE1 manage to convey heart-wrenching concepts without throwing their feel-good vibe out the window,” and “Both “Good to You” and “Baby I Miss You” prove that the quartet can deliver clean, crisp vocals on top of soothing piano beats. The latter boasts a synthy lounge vibe with a notable verse from CL, whose flow is right on point.” Also “Scream” actually ended up fiercer with this K-pop rendition. “Come Back Home (Unplugged Version)” puts a much-welcome spotlight.
Starting from March of 1 to 2, 2NE1 will firstly deliver its performance in second world tour ‘ALL OR NOTHING’ held in Olympic Park SK Olympic handball stadium.
