Try to hold back your tears! The K-pop girl group 2NE1 have dropped their final song as a group and have bid farewell to all their Blackjacks for the foreseeable future.
YG Entertainment first announced the farewell song “Goodbye” that would be 2NE1’s first musical release as a group since 2014 shortly after their official disbandment in late November of last year. It has been said that the disbandment rested mostly on member Park Bom who has struggled with issues of mental health for some time, the label has stated that they want her to be healthy.
“Goodbye” was initially intended to be used by leader CL as part of her own American solo debut songs but it was decided that the track would instead be used as the group’s departure song as a way of saying farewell to fans. The nostalgic, mellow ballad is accompanied by a black and white music video featuring CL, Dara, and Bom who look through their memories together. It is of course sadly absent of former member Minzy who left 2NE1 in April 2016, making for an even more heart wrenching video.
With lyrics such as “Until the day we meet again, Goodbye goodbye” the girl’s sadness and regret is evident but gives a ray of hope to fans that we may one day be reunited with the talented 2NE1. Check it out above!
We wish all the members the best of luck with their future goals and can’t wait to see them again.
