[OSEN=Kim Gyeong Ju] 2NE1, the all-girl K-pop group that has recently made an impact in the States, had its album ‘Crush’ voted as the most favorite girl group album in the US Billboard.
Billboard conducted ‘Girl Group Week’ on Saturday and announced that 2NE1’s album ‘Crush’ was picked up as the most favorite girl group album.
According to Billboard, 2NE1’s album ‘Crush’ received 22% of voting, beating out Little Mix, ‘DNA’ and Spice Girls, ‘Spice’.
In the Most Fashionable Girl Group, 2NE1 received 31% of voting, beating out Spice Girls and Destiny’s Child.
Previously, 2NE1 set new U.S. record for ‘Billboard 200’, the highest rank in K-POP.

K-pop has turned a corner in America. It’s gone from an underground Internet sensation to a genuine influence. The South Korean rapper G-Dragon has collaborated with Diplo, Missy Elliott and Skrillex; now the all-female quartet 2NE1 is the latest to shoot for a mainstream U.S. pop presence. “Crush” has one foot in each country’s pop music: K-pop’s neon melodies, with sounds from America’s trap and bass-music scenes. It’s the most coherent LP to come out of this generation of K-pop.
2NE1 pulled a Beyoncé with this record, keeping it secret until release day (It worked. “Crush” sold 5,000 copies for K-pop’s best debut in U.S. history on the Billboard 200). Singer-rapper-writer CL gets the album’s best track in “MTBD,” which is billed as a solo cut. It’s an eerie, 808-destroying stomper as good as anything on rap radio in America right now. “Crush’s” title track is a deliciously trashy electro-pop banger; “Come Back Home” tosses Atlanta trap drums, pop-reggae guitars and Robyn‘s bleary-eyed pleading into one song and makes it work. 2NE1’s softer side is convincing too: “Happy” is just as catchy as Pharrell’s single of the same title, and G-Dragon penned the regal ballad “Good to You.”
Commercial smash or not, “Crush” is doing more important work than crossing over — it’s ushering in K-pop’s future, in America and everywhere.

The physical version of 2NE1‘s second studio album CRUSH was finally released on the 7th on all national online and offline music stores.
This new album, which contains a total of 10 songs including the double title tracks “COME BACK HOME” and “GOTTA BE YOU”, has been released in two distinct versions: a pink and a black edition.
The visual contrast between these albums comes to show the wide range of charms 2NE1 displays via their music.
By working extensively on their album, treating the production and composition of every song as a possible title track, the group concluded all preparations with a product that encompassed various genres such as Reggae, hip-hop and R&B. CL, especially, was responsible for the writing and composition of “CRUSH”, “IF I WERE YOU” and “BABY I MISS YOU” as well as the lyrics for “SCREAM” and her solo track “MENTAL BREAKDOWN”.
Ever since 2NE1’s online release of “CRUSH” on February 26th, the album has been receiving positive feedback from national and international audiences. Not only has it managed to achieve an ‘all-kill’ in domestic online music charts but it also topped the iTunes charts in several other countries. For example, “COME BACK HOME” ranked #1 on the iTunes Top Singles Chart in the Philippines as well as their album CRUSH topped the Top Albums Chart at #1 in Indonesia, Singapore, Philippines, and Thailand. In addition, it ranked high on other countries such as the US, Canada, Mexico, and Brazil.
Most surprising of all, however, is the recent finding of “CRUSH” in Billboard’s chart Billboard 200. This marks the highest ranking a K-Pop group has achieved in the chart.
Currently, 2NE1 is preparing for their March 9th “Inkigayo” broadcast in which they will showcase their first comeback stage. In addition, they will continue their world tour ‘ALL OR NOTHING’ with their second destination, Hong Kong, on the 22nd.
