Yesterday (Thursday, 5th January), YG Entertainment announced that 2NE1 (투애니원, sans Minzy) will be releasing one last song together. It was also reported that the members reunited in secret to complete recording for the song, titled “Good Bye” (굿바이).
According to Star News via Koreaboo, insiders reveal that the idol group’s final track was written and produced by CL (real name Lee Chaelin).
The source added that the compositions were initially done by J Gramm and Rook Monroe, who is best known for his work for Rihanna’s “Anti” (2016) album.
Apparently, CL, who is currently promoting as a solo artiste in the United States, created the track for her solo promotions. It was said that the song was an outlet for the former 2NE1 leader to express her feelings of regret about the group’s disbandment. However, YG Entertainment decided to change the original plan and use it as 2NE1’s farewell track instead. The label then contacted Sandara Park and Park Bom directly to record the song and film the music video.
Minzy, who signed an exclusive contract with Music Works last May, did not participate in the project.
Once a Blackjack, always a Blackjack. Though we’re still heartbroken from 2NE1’s sudden disbandment, we wish all the best to the members in their respective careers.
“Good Bye” is slated for release on 21st January, along with the music video.
