Hey everyone ! Pixie McQueen, here, the boldest Balckjack of the Web !
For this article, this won’t be the creative fairy that’ll talk but the huge Blackjack I am !
In this article, I talked about the K-Pop girl group 2NE1 (Blackjacks are their fans). But this time I will tell you about their super charismatic leader CL (Lee Chaelin) who’s preparing her debut album which is gonna be the beginning of her american solo career !
So a lot of people saw her in 2NE1 but also collaborating with other big acts such as G-Dragon (‘R.O.D‘ or ‘The Leaders‘ that I absolutely love), Black Eyed Peas (‘Where Is The Love‘), Skrillex (‘Dirty Vibe‘) or, more recently Diplo, Riff Raff and OG Maco (‘Dr Pepper‘). And no, this collaboration is not her first single even if she wrote it !
By the way I love CL and she’s doing her job for ‘Dr Pepper’ but I’m not too found of the song because I think it’s too ssimple compared to all she’s able to do. The melody is quite monotonous and the lyrics very repetitive, that’s why it’s so catchy ! Also, the lyrics aren’t supposed to be committed or something, they aren’t worse than most of the songs we hear in the clubs. It’s clearly not a song for Blackjacks nor K-Pop fans in general, but more for americn rap fans I would say ! Even the video bored me while CL is stunning with her new silver hair ! It’s all about the rappers rapping in front of the camera and then a bus (or maybe a very long SUV I don’t know…) with Dr Pepper cans everywhere and female dancers in black underwear twerking. Those dancers are objectified in a very useless way, which doesn’t bring anything interesting to the video.
But I’m reassured that she also said that her ‘cool’ image would remain and that 2NE1 wouldn’t stop, contrary to rumors ! =D I hope she won’t turn into a Nicki Minaj or Iggy Azalea copycat just to make it in America !
So she will work with Diplo (Major Lazer) and Scooter Braun (Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande’s manager) will take care of her career; I like Major Lazer, and even if I don’t like Bieber and Grande that much, I can’t wait to see how these new people will influence her music and career !
Diplo said in an interview with the Time that one of her songs would be called “Birthday” and it will be in English and Korean. He also said that another of her songs will be called “One” which will be pop, “childish and fun”.
It’s now time for Chaelin to stand on her own two feet and to show us all of her talent (rapper, singer, songwriter, composer) !
