K-pop icon 2NE1 has decided to excite their fans in Japan one more time with the release of a new single.
2NE1 will drop their new Japanese single that includes the latest hit tune “I LOVE YOU” on September 12, according to the group’s official Japanese website Monday.
The girls have been cruising smoothly with “I LOVE YOU,” which already became available online in the Korean version on July 5. It has also been chosen as the campaign song of American makeup brand Maybeline New York’s mascara.
The officials noted that the forthcoming record will be unleashed in two different versions: a record-only version and a record plus DVD version that includes music videos and making clips.
On the same day of announcing the new release, the girls also revealed a snippet of promotional video of “I LOVE YOU” in the Japanese-language version.
“I LOVE YOU,” the cross-genre song of electronic and trot music, has been topping various online music charts for multiple weeks upon its release, including Gaon’s weekly singles chart.
2NE1 expanded their singing activities into Japan in September last year with the release of the debut Japanese single “NOLZA” on September 21. The girls, who attracted around 70,000 fans in total for the first promotional tour in Japan last year, released their second single “SCREAM” in March.
Meanwhile, the four K-pop queens finally kicked off their long-awaited first global tour “NEW EVOLUTION” in Seoul on July 28 and 29.
