Musical Monday: The 2NE1 Edition

Posted by Stephanie on March 10, 2014

2ne142NE1 is finally back! Let me just say, I really love YG artists and their slightly harder sound. I may be wrong on this but I feel like that if there are risks to be taken YG is the one to do it. The new album is killing it on the charts right now.

This song? I’m not really sure how I feel about it. Do I out of the box love it? No. But something kept me listening through the whole thing, which, considering I don’t usually make it past the 30 second mark on a lot (an embarrassing amount) of new Kpop music, that really has to say something.

The song has a lot of different musical styles within it and they meld pretty well together. Watching 2NE1, I’m just struck by how freaking cool they are. Again, I think that’s a YG thing.

I think 2NE1 is a great example to show that you can have a girl group without the overt sexiness or annoying ageyo. Not that either, if done well, aren’t effective, but there is so much of it out there–it makes 2NE1 feel all the more refreshing for their blasé badassery.

Blasé badassery? Does that make any sense? Probably not. But to me it really seems to fit them. Now I’m off to listen to the rest of the album!

2NE1, Come Back Home
