Great news for all K-Pop lovers, especially those who are fans of 2NE1! 2NE1’s fierce leader Chae-rin, more commonly known by her stage name CL, is debuting as a solo artist in the US in spring 2015.
Yes, you read that right! It looks like CL will follow the footsteps of PSY who was the first Korean artist to break a huge record in America through his viral video “Gangnam Style” which initially showed up in South Korea.
For her new and upcoming album, CL will be working with talent manager Scooter Braun, who represents pop starts Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande, and is the person who also signed K-pop artist PSY to the School Boy records. Luckily for us, it seems like Braun has a taste for K-pop.
According to the YG United, an entertainment website specializing in news related to the YG Family, CL had a chance to meet Braun in Seoul with the help of PSY. It’s no surprise that Braun was impressed by CL’s rapping skills, unique taste in fashion, charismatic attitude and her fluent English skills– essentially making her the “baddest female” in Korea.
CL is a South Korean singer, rapper, dancer and songwriter. She first became part of YTN entertainment in 2006 as a trainee, and officially debuted in late 2007 with her fellow 2NE1 members, Park Bom, Sandara Park and Minzy.
