It has been revealed that 2NE1’s final goodbye song, to be released on January 21, was written by CL herself.
According to an exclusive report by Star News on January 6, CL wrote “GOOD BYE,” and musicians J Gramm and Rock Monroe composed the song. Rock Monroe most recently worked as a composer for the song “Desperado” in Rihanna’s “Anti” album.
The report states that “GOOD BYE” was originally a song for CL’s solo U.S. promotions, written by CL as an outlet for the leader’s feelings of regret about the end of 2NE1. However, YG Entertainment thought it would be a good song to release as 2NE1 for Blackjacks, and contacted Sandara Park and Park Bom to meet for one last time in the recording studio.
