A 30-second preview of 2NE1′s “I Am the Best” was posted earlier by YG Entertainment.
Mmm, this seems promising. 2NE1 is so hit or miss, in my opinion. I suppose I have yet to hear a song by the whole group that resonates with me entirely, so it may just be their style. They’re very experimental for K-Pop if you think about it. YG seems to push the limit with them; Big Bang can get “funky” for Big Bang, but they never seem to go outside a certain perimeter of style-craziness. I guess 2NE1 seems one step ahead in that respect.
I’ll have to hear the whole song before I can really say what I think of this song. I honestly wasn’t a huge fan of “To Anyone,” so it will be interesting to hear what they’re up to now. “Lonely” seems like it would be good in an album setting, although it did have some strength on its own. I just think we’ve always felt there is something bigger coming from them. Is this it?
