Korean superstar girl group 2NE1 has released I Am The Best, off its upcoming album,
Fresh off its recent hit, Lonely, which was decidedly softer and more rhythmic than any of its previous hits, including Fire, In The Club, and Lollipop, 2NE1 has decided to return to the hiphop-techno feel that has characterized and set them apart from other K-Pop girl groups, highlighting the massive appeal that CL, Minzy, Park Bom, and Dara bring to the K-Pop music scene.
Producer Teddy, who is the man behind many of 2NE1’s hits, says that the electronic hip hop sound of I Am The Best bodes well for the girls. Definitely a dance track that is among the fiercest out of the releases for 2011 this far, I Am The Best will definitely add to 2NE1’s growing roster of hits. The thumping bass line, the sizzling synths, and, of course, the hypnotic melody will definitely have local and international Blackjacks – the term for 2NE1’s fans – reaching for the Repeat mode on their iPods.
