2NE1 is sweeping music charts with tracks from their second studio album “Crush.” The group released their new album on February 27 at 12:00 AM KST, rapidly topping Naver’s real-time search terms and attacking online music charts.
“Crush” has achieved all-kill status, and all tracks on the album are currently lined up one after another on music charts, exhibiting the album’s explosive reception in Korea.
One of their two title tracks, “Come Back Home,” made a clean sweep of the charts, seizing the number one position on 10 real-time online music charts almost immediately (Melon, Bugs, Mnet, Naver Music, Daum Music, Olleh, Cyworld Music, Soribada, Monkey3 and Genie).
The main competitor to “Come Back Home” is 2NE1’s other title track, “Gotta Be You,” which has taken second place on all 10 of the music charts listed above.
The album’s other eight tracks, including CL’s compositions, “Crush,” “If I Were You,” and “Baby I Miss You,” aren’t doing too shabbily themselves, with almost all of the tracks occupying top ten spots on most charts.
“Crush” will be released offline on March 7, following 2NE1’s first two concerts of their “All or Nothing” World Tour in Seoul on March 1 and 2. The group will be broadcasting their rehearsal for this weekend’s “All or Nothing” concerts live on Naver at 7:00 PM KST.
YG also recently released new “Crush” images for all members. Check them out below.
