Is Seoul’s baddest female is going to collaborate with one of the best British indie rock bands? Well, Bobby Brackins, the mastermind behind Tinashe’s hit single “2 On” and Chris Brown’s “Loyal”, said the collaboration might happen soon.

In a recent interview with Vice Magazine, American producer Bobby Brackins accidentally let slip that 2NE1‘s CL will feature a collaboration with Florence + the Machine for her US solo album.

Florence and the Machine is an English indie rock band that made significant inroads in the music scene through the release of the debut album “Lungs”. Best known for their soulful music, the band consists of lead singer Florence Welch, Isabella Summers, and some collaborations with other artistes. The band has been recognised with multiple awards and nominations for their successful debut and their unique yet powerful music.


Thus, CL’s alleged collaboration with Florence and the Machine piqued fans’ interests on her new album.

Brackins told the magazine that CL previously approached him to work on some songs with Florence and the Machine.

He said:

I’m friends with this girl CL now, she’s like the biggest artist in Korea. She hit me up to go work on some songs with Florence and the Machine! I couldn’t do it because it was the night before we were flying out to New York but that would have been crazy to work with Florence…”

When asked about whether he will be working with CL, he continued by saying:

I’ve worked with CL before! She’s dope. But I love Florence … we’re so different though, I never thought me and her could be able to merge. Random collaborations are happening.

CL has yet to respond to the report but this further heightened fans’ anticipation for her US solo album.



Set to make a solo debut in US this spring, CL is currently working on her album with a slew of famous producers and musicians including Sean Garrett, Justin Bieber, Psy, and Ariana Grande’s manager Scooter Braun.
