Yay!! 2NE1 is back with a new track called I Love You.
My favorite girls are back!! I love it that they have a more mature sound in this single with a touch of the 2NE1 sound that the Blackjacks have grown to love. This song is a mix of electronica, house, rnb and hip hop.. with a bit of the retro feel that is popular now in Korea. Do I like it? Yes!!! I love that it’s catchy with the lyrics saying I Love You. It kind of reminds me of cross between Bonnie Bailey and Kylie Minogue track with a twist of the 2NE1 sound they are familiar with. It’s no doubt this is a track that only these girls can perfect!
I love that they experimented with this sound, and they have delivered it.
I love that YG has finally shown the sensual and mature sides of the girls! I love the glam, the make up and the clothes! So fashionable! I gotta love those close ups! They look very very pretty! Though there’s not much of a story, from what I gather it’s like a girl singing about someone that she loves while thinking about him. I think because the title is I Love You, I would have wanted more than this MV.. like a love interest or something. I’m not complaining about the MV though.
I read in a report that Dara shed tears when she had to shave her head for this comeback. I think that’s mighty brave of her.. I think she has has changed from the cry baby Sandara Park in Star Circle Quest to a very mature Dara of 2NE1. (In case you did not know Star Circle Quest was the contest that made her popular in the Philippines. I used to watch it a lot back then, and there wasn’t a time when Sandara didn’t cry or looked pitiful at that time. I wasn’t rooting for her back then, but I think now, she’s not the same girl anymore, and I like her a lot now!).
Now I want to see them on music shows, but that means they will be going head to head with my favorite boys… Hmm, well I think that would be good to see them both together in a show!
Final Verdict: Can’t help singing I Love You when I hear this song.. but I expected a bit more with the video, but I’m not disappointed.
