As the charismatic multilingual leader of one of the best-selling female groups of all time, 2NE1, CL has helped pave the way for K-pop’s explosion. She’s collaborated with some of the biggest American artists such as Method Man, Skrillex and Diplo. As the only member to break out to become a true global superstar with the ability to bridge cultures, CL became the pacesetter for K-pop Western migration and that became evident with her last album release, which became her debut full-length body of work known as “+ALPHA+.” Her status in the international pop scene became genre-crossing from catchy pop-R&B hybrids, electronic touches and speaker-busting hip-hop that stand apart.
