After spending an eventful year trying to break the US market with a tour and will.i.am collaboration, 2NE1 has returned to their K-Pop roots — albeit with a reggae twist. “Falling In Love” finds one of Asia’s hottest acts in a fun and playful mood. They jump on the dancehall trend pioneered by Girls’ Generation with “I Got A Boy” (although to give credit where it’s due, J-Pop icon Munehiro has been doing this kind of thing for at least the past six years) but it’s a natural fit for the always-adventurous divas.
The video is less exciting. Minzy and friends look slightly bored dancing on a fake beach but at least their outfits are on point. And the song is super catchy, so who really cares? Let us know what you think about the band’s latest offering in the comments below.
