2NE1 the label mate of Big bang is just a great band. The spirit of 2NE1 is definitely craziness. We cannot define them another way, they are always wearing weird clothes, having crazy haircuts and their music videos are always original. They are mostly making songs that gives you the feeling to go to party all night. It puts you in the mood to dance. They have a huge success and got it pretty quickly from their debut in 2009. They are now even preparing to release an album specifically for the US in 2013 and are planning on doing promotion there. Like their label mate Big bang, they are taking the world under their wings by showing them something new and fresh. Those talented girls are definitely going to go far in this business and we want to wish them a lot of success. With Japako Music we will follow them for sure!
With CL as the leader of the group, she has a very special voice, you could recognize her between thousands others. She can also dance very well. She is a bit precious but she seems friendly. Her personality and attitude might not please everybody because she is a bit special but this is her charm. The lead vocal Bom is very sweet and has a great voice. She seems to be funny and she is also very feminine. With her, it’s all in cuteness. Then you have the vocalist Dara, she is also very talented and she has a bit more the bad girl look, not afraid to say what she has to say and make fun of the others. She can be funny and has a lot of presence. The last member and youngest, Minzy, the female rapper of the band is really great, she can rap very well but can also sing and do very sexy dances. She is only 18 but she doesn’t seem so young, still she is a beautiful girl and has this way to go right to the point when she has something to say. That’s why we like her.
They first released a mini album untitled „2NE1“ where you can find the song „I don’t care“. In 2011, they released a full length album „To anyone“ in Korea, which is a very good album, with songs like „Can’t nobody“ or „Try to follow me“, which are two wonderful songs. Then they released their first mini album in Japan „Nolza“ at the same time as another mini album for Korea „2NE1 second mini album“. Where you have the two famous songs „I am the best“ and „lonely“. In 2012, they released one full length album for Japan called „collection“. After that, they did their come back in Korea with the song „I love you“ in July 2012.
If you love pop-dance songs, then you can only love 2NE1. We will advise you to check them out and make your own opinion about it. You can discover already a bit by reading the reviews of their music videos and their last album under this presentation. Give it a try it won’t kill you, promise!
In 2014 the girls came back with the album “Crush” that includes some of their most recent biggest hits: “Crush”, “Come Back Home” and “MTBD” (CL solo). After this release, the girls went on hiatus and focused on individual activities: Dara took part in acting role while CL made her solo comeback and started preparing for a U.S solo debut.
Unfortunately, on April 2016, Y.G Entertainment announced the termination of Minzy’s exclusive contract and her departure from the group and the agency. Minzy then signed under a new agency and started preparing for a solo career.
Another bad news awaited BlackJacks in 2016. On November 25th, YG Entertainment announced the official disbandment of the group. CL and Dara have already resigned with the agency and will keep going solo. However, Park Bom didn’t sign the renovation of the contract and will officially leave YG Entertainment.
Japako Music is sad to see the end of this incredible group. On the other hand, we are sure that even individually, the members will be able to shine and contribuite to the K-Music scene.
