▶ 2NE1 NEW ALBUM CRUSH track list
With an exciting beat and rhythmical rap and melody which center around a powerful lead synth sound, this song is easy for anyone to sing along at first hearing. The mixture of the style of different genres including dance, trap, and rock beat, adds to the excitement, showing the distinguished color of 2NE1.
02. COME BACK HOME (TITLE)
This cross-over pop music created by combining different genres including R&B, reggae, and hip-hop is a sophisticated song where a modern sound source is put over popular retro melody, the megatrend of contemporary music. The later part of the song entertains listeners with a fresh twist into trap, one of the hottest genres of EDM. It is a strongly catchy song with an easy chorus melody and lyrics, which make listeners want to sing along it continuously, at first hearing.
03. GOTTA BE YOU (TITLE)
The intro part is composed of a unique synth sound and rhythmical rapping and the later part mixes a powerful and exciting beat with an old-school style melody. It is a cross-over dance music where trap and elements of EDM are combined together.
04. IF I WERE YOU
A tender piano and unique string sound, as well as a magnificent drum beat stand out in this sentimental R&B song.
05. GOOD TO YOU
A sentimental melody that flows tranquilly like a stream, and a mellow piano sound stand out in this R&B song.
06. MTBD (CL SOLO)
MTBD is CL’s solo and a trap music that is composed of a tense drum beat, low bass, and unique synth sound. The witty lyrics written by CL by using the concept of “mental collapse”, one of the cultural icons of our times, entertain listeners.
A shuffle beat centering around a magnificent electronic guitar sound and the progress in a major code, as well as a sentimental chorus melody catch ears in this pop song.
A powerful drum beat, catchy “Scream” hook line, and unique synth sound catch ears in this energetic electronic-dance song. In the intro part, it progresses in a minor code and an ear-catching rap and mid-to-low-pitched melody add to the energy, while in the later part, a chorus melody in a light major code brings the mood to the climax powerfully.
09. BABY I MISS YOU
A dreamy sound of electronic piano, unusual code progress that feels mystical, and the lyrics about a secret crush between a man and woman are catching ears in this sweet R&B song.
10. COME BACK HOME (UNPLUGGED VER.)
Another version of the title track, which is a reinterpretation of the title in an acoustic guitar version. This song gives a sentimental feel that is different from the dance version, and the unique voice of each member stands out in this version.
We ask for your interest and support.
