YG Entertainment “core pillars” Big Bang and 2NE1 would be making simultaneous comebacks. Fans as well as the entertainment industry, are all showing a growing sense of interest in this.
On the 29th, YG CEO Yang Hyun Suk, told E-Daily “Star In E” that “On June 3 and June 6, Big Bang’s new song would be released, directly following after that is 2NE1’s new album, which is confirmed for a June release also,” he said.
The Big Bang special edition album, “Still Alive” will feature five new songs in addition to title track, “Monster.”
The album will also include the songs from Big Bang’s 5th Mini Album, “Alive.” Currently, it seems that the group would not be holding any kind of promotional activities for the new album, as Big Bang would be focusing more on its world tour and concerts in Japan.
2NE1 fans would also be able to quench their thirst. Currently, 2NE1, along with exclusive producer Teddy, has completed seven songs. 2NE1 is still in deep discussion as to which one of three songs out of the current finished songs, would be chosen to be the title song. When the album would be released, the group is expected to be active in promotional activities, as well as other broadcasts. It has not been determined yet as to whether this new album would be a full album or a mini album.
Yang Hyun Suk said, “There’s more unity amongst the Big Bang and 2NE1 members now since their debut, so they are giving the best music that they could offer,” he also added, “I personally think that I would give both groups 100 points out of 100 points for their new songs,” he said, showing his confidence.
Yang Hyun Suk also followed with, “In particular, my mind is at ease with 2NE1. 2NE1 always does well when they release new songs. Their fashion in addition to their skills, have made them a group which already has recognition. Their comeback is something to look forward to,” he finished.
