More on CL and Crossing Over

CL from 2NE1 Live in Tokyo

On May 8, 2015, in Concert, Japan, Music, song, by mugen

Chiho turned me on to 2NE1 (a K-Pop group) after we heard one of their songs in some movie back in October. I played this track at a Halloween Dance a week or three later. Very catchy track, kind of cool to see a live video of it. Lots of speculation if CL can make it solo in the USA… Not sure, but this track would be one I’d try to push.

Sad thing, “Gangnam Style” was a flash, a one-off kind of thing. Until you can strike with that kind of fire consistently, foreign acts are going to have to sing in English. We’re just not ready for more than one or two songs at a time to be in other languages on our radios. Call me a cynic.
