[뉴스엔 황혜진 기자] 2NE1’s second regular album “CRUSH” is creating a tremendous sensation for two days in a row, sweeping top places in music charts in and out of the country.
As of February 28 at 8am, 2NE1’s “COME BACK HOME” is ranked in the No.1 place on the real-time chart of Melon, Olleh Music, Bugs, Mnet, Soribada, Daum Music, and Genie, while “GOTTA BE YOU” is in the first place in the chart of Monkey3 and Naver Music. As such, 2NE1 is demonstrating an extraordinary popularity with their new songs placed in the No.1 place in total nine music charts.
2NE1’s new album is also No.1 in the iTunes album chart of seven countries: Brunei, Finland, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, and Hong Kong.
2NE1’s new album is released four years after their first regular album. Not only the title tracks but also all the songs in the new regular album were complimented by YG’s head producer Yang Hyun Suk to be the best-ever. And actually, the songs are receiving a rave review, as proven by nine of them still being ranked in top 10 places in real-time music charts.
2NE1’s new album is also recognized for a rediscovery of leader CL’s talent. CL composed and wrote the lyrics of total three songs, “CRUSH”, “GOTTA BE YOU”, and “BABY I MISS YOU” jointly with other producers and wrote the lyrics of her solo track “MTBD”. CL exerted her talent as a singer-songwriter by composing three songs and writing the lyrics of five songs among total 10 songs in the new album.
The songs that CL composed and wrote the lyrics for are enjoying a great popularity, which leads to recognition of CL’s big potential for further growth as a versatile artist.
Meanwhile, 2NE1 will disclose the performance of the songs in their second regular album for the first time, on the stage of the Seoul concert of their second world tour “ALL OR NOTHING”, which will be held on March 1 and 2 at Olympic Park SK Handball Hall located in Songpa-gu, Seoul.
