2NE1, the girl group of 4 members (CL, Sandara Park, Park Bom and Gong Minji) not only topped the GAON Digital Chart but also had 9 of their songs in the top 20.

According to the GAON Chart on Mar. 13, the title song “Come Back Home” of 2NE1’s second album “Crush,” which was released on Feb. 27, received 17,784,174 scores in the third week of March (Mar. 2 to 8), and topped the GAON Digital Chart with ease.

This is not all.

2NE1’s another title song “Gotta Be You” ranked 3, “If I were you” ranked 8. Other songs such as “Crush,” “Good to You,” “Mental Breakdown,” “Happy,” “Scream,” “Baby I Miss You” ranked 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, and 19, respectively. Nine songs out of 10 in the second album were ranked within 20 in the GAON Digital Chart.

Thinking that the only track that didn’t make it into the top 20 was the unplugged version of “Come Back Home,” it is right to say that all songs in the second album were listed in the top 20 of the GAON Digital Chart.

With their song “Come Back Home,” 2NE1 also topped the Online Download Chart of GAON in the third week of March.

In the afternoon of Mar. 13, 2NE1 will make its first show in “M Countdown,” which is a K-POP ranking program of Mnet. In the show, 2NE1 will sing “Come Back Home” and “If I were you,” which topped the digital chart. On Mar. 9, 2NE1 did appear on TV through SBS Inkigayo with their second album. But it is still their first time showing “If I were you” on Mnet.

“Mr. Mr,” a fourth mini-album of Girls’ Generation released in Feb. took the first place in the GAON Album Chart for the third week of Mar. The Online Streaming Chart was topped by Soyou and Junggigo’s “Some.”

[NEWS] Sentimental Live Performance of 2NE1′s “If I Were You”… Vocals Exploding with Emotions

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 of2NE1, 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 intoMINZY’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.
