The one thing that bugged me straight off was that gross English CL spat out at the beginning. – What hood did she visit to pick up such bad grammar? - 'Ain't' isn't technically a word, just FYI, and I know it's used a lot, but it just didn't sound right coming out of her mouth.
I don't want to say that I was disappointed, but just a little underwhelmed the very first time I heard this song. I'm not sure what it is yet...probably that strange chorus.
I really like the verses and the beat and almost everything except the chorus. If you listen to the chorus one too many times, it starts to get on your nerves. I think Teddy (the producer) missed the mark there, but nice try, nice try.
As a whole, I like it. It kind of (KIND OF!) grew on me after a few takes, some breaks, and some more takes, which I'm glad about because I am a big fan of this group. 2NE1 have a good sense of their musical style. I mean, you listen to this and automatically know who it is and where they're going, unlike several other Korean girl groups that are blind, lost and can't seem to identify themselves with any particular genre.
I like this song's wit and charm. Although their voices are practically nonexistent, that's not the point of 'Try to Follow Me'. This is meant to be more of an experience. One artist I can compare 2NE1 to is definitely M.I.A. If you've ever heard some M.I.A. before, you know what I mean when I say that these songs aren't focused on their vocal strength.
The processing doesn't really bother me. They processed their voices from beginning to end, so it isn't as irritating, but I will point out that Sandara totally got extra auto-tuned here.
I'm anxious to see their CF and what they've got in store for their upcoming album.ter]
Now this is one summer special that I'll be looking forward to, I'm excited for the Fire and Gee performance the most. I definitely know all the guys out there are dying of anticipation for this week's Inkigayo. Check out allkpop later this week to read of coverage on this week's Inkigayo. It's gonna be an epic afternoon!
Famous as fashionistas, What tips would the girl group 2NE1 give for pulling off denim 100%?
2NE1 recently had an interview with Money Today Star News in '2010 Big Project Girl Group Male Clothing Photoshoot.' Here, 2NE1 praised it as they said “Denim is an item we always very much enjoy.” And then they came in showing off their own style of a denim look.
The stylist for today, LEe Jin Kyu, said, “ Overall I styled it with denim as the theme, and mixed and matched to create a retro atmosphere and a western feeling.”
[We] learned how to coordinate a denim style well. First of all, CL said, “Denim has a boot cut as well as a straight cut, and it differs between the bottom length and the top length. Above all, when choosing a pair of jeans, one should check the fit, and I think it's important that one checks to see if it suits their figure or not.”
She continued, “As for brands, I wear a lot of Beanpole jeans. It was a pretty fit [for me].”
Park Bom said “I like dressing in styles where I can show a bit of my legs.” And “For a feminine look, a simple style seems to be good. I wear pants that hang on the hips, and the body line is pretty.”
Sandara Park advised, “On top of a pair of jeans, I match it with a pretty button up shirt or a belt. I usually don't do accessories. I have always liked hats and shoes so I match those up, and I think using a trifle article as a point will make the jeans look prettier.
Gong Minji stated, “I wear Beanpole jeans often. If the jeans are simple, then I wear a more flashy print shirt.” And “For example, a bold colored pair of heels or lace is another way of letting the denim look stand out.”
