2NE1 is the new girl band that YG spent 3 years preparing to debut. This group of 4 young girls is being watched closely with high expectations as they are considered the "female Big Bang".
2NE1 consists of CL (leader, rapper,vocalist), Gong Minji (rapper, vocalist), Park Bom (main vocalist) and Sandara Park (vocalist). Not only is there a big difference between their ages (Sandara and Bom are 1984s and the youngest Minji is a 1994), but their images they portray are also varied from sexy to cute to cool.
Their unofficial debut was with their "big brother" Big Bang with the song "Lollipop" which was for commercial purposes (LG Lollipop phone). Their official debut is with the hip hop/raggae single "Fire".
Now, holding their own in the music industry, 2NE1 has released their own mini-album, which includes five new songs and previous hits, such as "Fire" and "Lollipop". 2NE1's new single "I Don't Care" has become an anthem for those who are or have gone through a bad break up.
