CL was recently featured in Pulitzer Prize-winning newspaper The Guardian on their list of new artists and recognize the popularity of 2NE1.
CL recently released “Doctor Pepper” produced by her close friend and artist Diplo, and caught the eye of the British daily newspaper. While fans are still waiting for the rapper and singer’s official debut into the American music scene, the track is another step closer and this review demonstrates that CL’s star power is prominent.
The Guardian wrote, “Managed by Scooter Braun (Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande), CL is the biggest star in South Korea – her pop group 2NE1 are bigger out there than One Direction. And now she is going solo, with an album due out later this year. ‘Doctor Pepper’ is one of her first English-language releases, with a similar line in cartoonish flow to Nicki Minaj.”
“Production is courtesy of Diplo, his intention being to present CL as ‘“the baddest, coolest female out right now.’ K-pop it ain’t. ‘Feeling so clean it don’t get no fresher,’ the 24-year-old declares over Atlanta trap heavy on spaciousness and sci-fi sonics. ‘You gon’ bounce to this shit,’ she warns.”
“This is probably true. As paeans to beverages go, it’s addictive stuff, with extra fizz provided by rappers Riff Raff and OG Maco.”
Meanwhile, CL and YB threw the opening pitch at a recent Dodgers game and had an intimate fan sign event for those who attended the game.
