Albumul acesta este dedicat trupei mele de suflet - 2NE1. Probabil putini sunteti familiarizati cu ea insa de aceea sunt eu aici (de precizat ca nu am scris eu toata descrierea, am incercat sa pun numai esentialul). Pe scurt, au fost o trupa din Coreea de Sud ce au debutat in 2009. La momentul debutului erau 4 fete (CL, BOM, DARA si MINZY) insa pentru o perioada de 6 luni au fost 3 (MINZY left).
Before there was 2NE1, there were four girls. They were on their own, and they were supposed to have solo projects. Minzy was originally to debut in Japan as part of a duo with now former fellow label-mate May Doni. CL was to become a solo artist, as she already had a couple of collaborations under her belt with the likes of Uhm Jung Hwa and YMGA. Dara was to become an actress, as she had made some music video cameos, and had a role in the drama “The Return of Iljimae”. Bom was set to release her solo album.
But they somehow decided to record a song together called ”Pretty Boy” and since then they remained together. www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSbubQOj3dg

2NE1 first came onto the scene in March 2009 with their seniors, BIGBANG. After inking a deal with LG, they released their CF song “Lollipop”. www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIRW_elc-rY
“Lollipop” went on to top several charts. By the end of April, YG Entertainment had announced that 2NE1’s official debut was right around the corner. 2NE1 were to release their official first single “FIRE”, along with two videos for the song: the Space Version and the Street Version.
►► On May 6, 2009, 2NE1 finally debuted with “Fire” - ᴡɪᴛʜ CL ᴀs ᴛʜᴇ ʟᴇᴀᴅᴇʀ﹐ ᴍᴀɪɴ ʀᴀᴘᴘᴇʀ ᴀɴᴅ sᴜʙ ᴠᴏᴄᴀʟ; BOM ᴀs ᴛʜᴇ ᴍᴀɪɴ ᴠᴏᴄᴀʟ; DARA ᴀs ᴛʜᴇ ᴠɪsᴜᴀʟ ᴀɴᴅ sᴜʙ ᴠᴏᴄᴀʟ ᴀɴᴅ MINZY ᴀs ᴛʜᴇ ᴍᴀɪɴ ᴅᴀɴᴄᴇᴇ﹐ ʟᴇᴀᴅ ᴠᴏᴄᴀʟ﹐ ʟᴇᴀᴅ ʀᴀᴘᴘᴇʀ ᴀɴᴅ ᴍᴀᴋɴᴀᴇ ﹙ᴛʜᴇ ʏᴏᴜɴɢᴇsᴛ﹚.
