Sorry, CL! Minzy Becomes The First 2NE1 Diva To Release A Solo Project
Former 2NE1 star Minzy is going solo. While ex-bandmate CL has been promising an English-language album for almost three years now, Minzy still managed to release a solo project before her. The K-Pop diva’s debut EP drops on April 17. The EP, which appears to be titled UNO, will contain five or six songs, with Asian-American rapper Flowsik featuring on the lead single. The 23-year-old has also collaborated with Jay Park, indicating that she’s headed in an edgy hip-hop and R&B direction.
Minzy isn’t the only 2NE1 member with solo music on the way. Sandara ‘Dara’ Park has said that she wants to drop a dance-pop album over the Korean summer, while the scandal-plagued Park Bom, who is currently without a record label after being dropped by YG Entertainment, told a fan on Twitter that she’ll be releasing an album this year too. As for CL, who knows? Despite putting out a string of so-called buzz singles, the professional fashionista has failed to deliver an album or EP since formally announcing her American advancement in 2014. On the bright side, she got to meet Naomi Campbell recently, so there’s that.
