[NEWS] Osen reveals “Why is it CL’s Solo? What will be different about it?”
Girl group 2NE1′s leader CL’s solo is coming. It is the first time in the 5 years since 2NE1′s debut that an official announcement has been made about her solo, which will be released on 28 May. Following after Park Bom and Sandara Park ‘s previous solo ventures, what would be different about CL’s solo?
On 15 May, a YG Entertainment official spoke to OSEN.
“It will be an album that is driven by the sexy and energetic image that CL already has. ‘Music that can be shown’ that matches the feel of the beginning of summer has been prepared. Not only will the sound be exceptional, she will again, showcase a new fashion style and a sexy concept that is unprecedented, which will be showcased through iconic performances.“
This is what he explains to be the reason for CL’s solo debut.
CL, among the members of 2NE1, is by far, the member that has generated the most waves with her performance, style and in many other aspects.
Always the one leading the trend, CL’s styling, passionate stage manners and performance have often become the talk of the town. The powerful energy that emanates from the petite figure and her confident and passionate charisma have also gained CL many fans.
A source from the music industry shares his predictions.
“With the confirmation of CL’s comeback, a new point to watch will be that she would be going head-to-head with the representative icon of female solo artists, Lee Hyori. Just like Lee Hyori, CL does surely have an image that is of a trendy and formidable ‘icon of the times’*. Because of that, we’ll be able to compare their music, performance, style etc.”
In addition, the YG Entertainment representative also said, “If Park Bom has previously showcased music to be heard with her vocal abilities as the weapon, CL will be offering music that can be both seen and heard. Do have a different expectation to this stylish album.”
CL’s first solo album will be released on 28 May. Both the audio and music video will be released on the same day. It is expected that it will be followed by full-scale promotions that will include promotions on music programs etc, which will begin from that following weekend onwards.
*T/N: Lee Hyori is regarded as an icon among female soloists from the time she became extremely successful with her debut solo album “Stylish” in 2003. Here the music industry source regards CL as someone who has followed in Hyori’s footsteps to become an ‘icon’ for her time, which probably refers to the years after 2NE1′s debut.
