In contrast to “Come Back Home,” “Happy” reacquaints fans with 2NE1’s upbeat, cheerful personas and their signature street flair. Produced by both Teddy and group leader CL, “Happy” brings listeners a colorful, buoyant melody and lyrics about wishing an ex a happy life. Check out the MV below:
Labeled a “top-quality album” by YG’s CEO Yang Hyun Suk, CRUSH includes: “Crush,” lead singles “Come Back Home” and “Gotta Be You,” “If I Were You,” “Good Girl,” CL solo “Mental Breakdown,” “Happy,” the Korean version of Japanese single “Scream,” “Baby I Miss You,” and “Come Back Home (Unplugged Version).” Along with frequent YG collaborators Teddy, Choice 37, DEE.P, and more, CL participated more than ever in the composition of Crush, writing music and lyrics for three of album’s 10 tracks.
