[Article] YG-Life: [Music Talk Talk] “HELLO BITCHES”… CL comes back as an “overpowering sis” (November 18, 2015)

[OSEN=선미경 기자] “The Baddest Female” CL is coming back.

Girl group 2NE1’s member CL is drawing keen attention, as she has turned out to be the next YG artist to come back on the 21 this month at 21 o’clock. It is her first solo comeback in two years and seven months since her first solo single “The Baddest Female” released in 2013.

On November 18 at 9am, YG Entertainment announced CL’s comeback by posting CL’s poster titled “CL – HELLO BITCHES” on the company’s official blog. Before the poster, YG had released “WHO’S NEXT” posters two times in surprise, raising music fans’ interest in the next YG musician to come back. On the 17, YG head producer YANG HYUN SUK and leading YG artists including G-DRAGON, TAEYANG, CL, and DARA posted mysterious alphabets on their respective Instagram accounts. Internet users combined those mysterious alphabets and already predicted CL’s comeback.

As CL’s comeback has been confirmed, music industry insiders and fans are paying keen attention to her, because CL is a recognized artist whose talent and potential have already been proven in her performances as a member of 2NE1 and in the process of preparation for her solo debut in the United States. Her flagship overwhelming charisma and powerful performances are drawing big anticipation from music fans not only in Korea but also overseas.

CL has been preparing for her solo debut in the United States after signing a contact with SB PROJECT of Scooter Braun who helped PSY’s success in the States. She featured for Skrillex’s “Dirty Vibe” in December last year and for Diplo’s single “Dr. Pepper” in May this year. Plus, she stood under a big spotlight from foreign media outlets by standing on the stage of “MDBP (Mad Decent Block Party) tour held in the States and Canada with world-famous artists. She was once included in the list of “10 Artists You Must Know” selected by American Rolling Stones. 

As CL is a musician who is drawing keen attention in overseas countries as well, music fans have high expectations for CL’s comeback. CL is recognized as a musician with her own unique color in Korea, and major foreign media outlets are also shedding spotlight on her. The solo performance of this “The Baddest Female” CL will be an important turning point in her career.

Notably, in Korea recently, so-called “overpowering sis” (strong-minded and aggressive girls who are not feminine at all) are popular, because of the popularity of such female rappers who competed in cable channel Mnet’s rapper survival show “Unpretty Rap Stars” series. As CL is the female musician who gets the most girl crushes in Korea’s music scene, she is expected to peak the sensation created by popular “overpowering sis”. Anticipation for “solo artist” CL is rising high, as she has long been recognized as a musician of unique charisma and character, as well as talented rapping and singing.
