[Exclusive] YG & 2NE1 stick to “prioritizing quality stage”

[일간스포츠 엄동진] Top girl group 2NE1 has no plan on appearing on TV “mindlessly.”

The quartet made their comeback on SBS’s Inkigayo on March 9. They impressed the fans and the entertainment world with “COME BACK HOME” and “CRUSH.” For an album to sell steadily, artists must make continuous TV appearance. But YG and 2NE1 decided to go with “select and concentrate” strategy. They are sticking to their principle that it is inevitable to “let go” of some programs in order to deliver quality outfits and performances.

Related personnel of the music industry said, “It’s highly likely that 2NE1 will only appear on SBS’s Inkigayo and Mnet’s M Countdown.” In fact, 2NE1 is scheduled to appear only on the two shows out of all from March 11 to 16.

The personnel added, “This is not about the relationship between KBS and YG. G-DRAGON appeared on KBS 2TV’s Yoo Heeyeol’s Sketchbook, so there is always room for 2NE1 to do so.” 2NE1’s new album “CRUSH” stood at #61 on Billboard Album Chart on March 5 (local time), gaining much popularity. Billboard extolled the title “COME BACK HOME” by saying that it is an explosive result of a crossover of different music genres. 2NE1, after appearing on the scheduled shows, will move on to perform for 2nd World Tour.

Sentimental Live-Performance of 2NE1’s “IF I WERE YOU”,.. Vocal Exploding with Emotions

[OSEN=권지영 기자] Girl group 2NE1 has captivated music fans with their appealing and emotional vocal.

YG Entertainment disclosed the live performance of “IF I WERE YOU”, which was given at 2NE1’s second world tour “ALL OR NOTHING”, on YG’s official blog (www.yg-life.com), on the 10 at 9pm. The Seoul concert of 2NE1’s world tour was held on March 1 and 2 at Olympic Park’s SK Handball Hall.

“IF I WERE YOU” is an emotional ballad with impressive lyrics that describe lovers who forefeel their break-up and want to know each other’s heart by becoming one another even for a day. CL herself directly wrote the lyrics and also took part in the composition of the song. The unique lyrics and vocals of four 2NE1 members create a perfect harmony in the song, making it one of the most loved flagship ballads of 2NE1, along with “LONELY” and “IT HURTS”.

The live performance of 2NE1’s “IF I WERE YOU” that has recently been disclosed is evaluated as a performance that shows the true value of 2NE1’s vocal. The performance begins with DARA’s tender and emotional vocal and develops into MINZY’s stable vocal and BOM’s hook in which her unmatched voice color stands out, and then finally to CL’s strong vocal, to create an intense harmony between all the four members.

There is no particular dance for the performance of “IF I WERE YOU”, but the four members singing the song with all their body leaves a stronger impression than any other special performance. Plus, a delicate but powerful sound by a world-class live session band who has taken part in the world tour of BIGBANG and G-DRAGON goes perfectly together with the vocal of 2NE1, more matured and sophisticated now, to create a superb live performance.

Music fans who watched the video of the live performance are giving a rave review to it, saying, “The music alone sounds rather plain, after I watched the live performance video”, “I can never listen to the song enough, because each of the four members has different and unique colors”, and “I can see that 2NE1 is growing and gaining more depth as time goes by”.

Meanwhile, 2NE1 gave the comeback performance in SBS “INKIGAYO” on the 9. 2NE1 is also kicking off the overseas concerts of their second world tour “ALL OR NOTHING”, while continuing performances on TV.
