[NEWS] 2NE1 WAS MENTIONED IN “DO THE WANTED WANT K-POP?”!

The incident was largely forgotten until very recently, when at a video for the Billboard Awards member Jay, clearly the band’s resident K-popper, sang the chorus line of “I Am The Best” by 2NE1. It must be said he pronounced it pretty appallingly; “meaga” not “neaga”. In his defence he might have though they were saying “mega” and considering I pronounced “hyung” like “hi – un –gee” for an unacceptable amount of time, personally I can’t judge. The important thing is that he definitely knows who they are now, as the video’s YouTube account and his Twitter was flooded with Blackjacks eagerly encouraging the possibility of a hook-up.

Will this actually happen? You never know, there is constant talk of over-saturation in both the Korean and Western music industry, and a side-move into K-pop, if only briefly, would stop them having to compete with American and European artists while injecting a fresh sound into K-pop. 2NE1 would get even more ammunition for their American take-over while The Wanted adds to their fanbase, ready for a Western comeback. Or perhaps 2NE1 will go to America and then collaborate with them. I think they would all have pretty amazing chemistry, and even better, 2NE1 barely dance! Pity there are only four members of 2NE1, but it’s okay, I’ll take Nathan. No really, I’m prepared to make that sacrifice, you can thank me later.

Two vague mentions and no response from the other side is precious little to go on, but the more interest that is stirred up the more likely it is to happen. YG sure doesn’t miss an opportunity and I don’t even think the fan wars would be too bad. The song would, going by Jay’s pronouciation, be in English, meaning a UK release would do amazing things for 2NE1’s popularity here. 2NE1, I know you are planning a comeback soon so if you want to include something with The Wanted, it will only improve your Western popularity. When you’re in America, pop ’round to see them, or if they are in England, stop over. You can crash at mine if you like.

What do you think, full of potential or wishful thinking?
