CL is on fire! The leader of the 2NE1 made her solo debut today with her music video for debut single, “The Baddest Female”.
In the cool hip-hop video, the 22 year-old snatches the the toughest woman in K-pop title and invites young girls to join her in her “bad girl” crusade. Dressed in the likes of Balmain, Jeremy Scott and Hermes accessories, CL ups the K-pop fashion stakes in the stylish video.
YG producer Teddy, who worked on the 70-bpm track, and BIGBANG members G-Dragon, 24, and Taeyang, 25, are also featured in the solo project. There’s even a new dance craze to get on – CL calls for all Blackjacks (2NE1’s fan group) to “do the unnie” (which means older sister).
