We love them.
You may remember K-Pop chartbusters 2NE1 from our 20 Favorite Pop Albums of 2011 or logging two albums in our 21 Greatest K-Pop Songs of All Time or for being more famous than anything right now. Well yesterday they dropped their most recent single “I Love You” and it’s a stone doozy, a perfect summation of pop’s present and future: those Guetta-style soccer-riot synths glowing and pulsing, ghostly background vocals creating smoke around the neon, and a stuttering Ke$ha-gone-“Stay Fly” rap in English. It’s already got 240,000 views by the time I write this, so join a cultural event and listen below:

2NE1’s I Love You is #1 on Canada, Finland, Norway, Portugal and Sweden iTunes Electronic Chart on 6th July 0800KST.
After a year, 2NE1 has released their new track, “I Love You,” online at midnight on July 5th, and it has been sweeping the charts since then.
At 8AM KST, 2NE1 held first place on the real-times chart for Melon, Mnet, Dosirak (Olleh Music), Bugs, Soribada and Cyworld Music. In addition, 2NE1’s “I Love You” can be viewed in 2nd place on the U.S. iTunes Electronic Chart.
2NE1’s “I Love You” is unlike the group’s past hit singles as it features a new sound and melody of electronic-pop with refreshing lyrics.
Since their debut, 2NE1 has covered an array of music genre including hip-hop, electronic, reggae, R&B and ballad. For the first time, 2NE1 has sung about the topic of love.
Prior to their comeback stage, 2NE1 has unveiled image teasers showing their strong style with a feel of sexy and femininity for “I Love You.”
2NE1 will have their comeback stage on SBS Inkigayo on July 8th, where they will perform their new experimental track for the first time.
It happened as expected.
2NE1 who managed to do five all-kills on music charts last year released their new song “I love You” on the 5th and immediately took over the charts, ranking 1st on nine music sites.
2NE1 is currently first on nine different websites : Melon, Mnet, Bugs, Olleh Music, Soribada, Naver Music, Daum Music and Cyworld Music.
“I Love You” is an electric pop song that exudes an oriental beauty produced by Teddy. Different from 2NE1′s usually confident songs, this song includes lyrics like “Please only be good to me. Please only ever smile for me. Don’t make me jealous, don’t make me obsess over you”, honestly expressing the feelings of females who fell in love.
In the teaser that got released today, the members flaunt their feminity, showing their transformation.
