Leave it to K-Pop to handpick all the action in American music and blend it into a megahit of hiphop, kpop, and dub. I personally saw the viewcount grow from 1 milli to 2 milli within hours.
On first watch, I was hesitant about the Dirty South specific style spewing out her Korean mouth (Iggy vibes?), but I gotta give props to any bad female who can get 2 million views on a video celebrating women in charge and global solidarity. Were there even men in this video? OH YES WHEN SHE DRESSES IN SOFT DRAG AT 1:40, that counts right?
To see what CL was really about, I took to the translations. Conclusion? 2NE1 is winning when it comes to working-girl lyrical content:
“Confident principles, valuable dignity (uh huh)
My eye smile is a given, my tears are my weapon (that’s right)”
“I’m the best, ha?
I’m busy every day, so busy, why, are you offended? ha”

The kpop industry’s plastic surgery obsession actually discouraging “bad females” (like literally as less good).
WHAT’S Y’ALLS TAKE?
