On January 22, a YG Entertainment rep told Newsen, "CL recently began working on her debut album in the U.S., and she left for the U.S. again on January 13 to continue working."

The rep continued, "We′ve set up camp in the U.S. with talented producers and musicians, putting our all into working. She′ll return sometime in early February."

Proving the statement, famous US producer, Sean Garrett recently posted a picture with CL on his SNS. He wrote, "Wow, this young superstar here is so amazing!! CL, u know what we bout to do!!"

The media in the U.S. has also shown its interest in CL′s U.S. debut. VH1 posted an article on January 7, titled, ′15 Female Rappers to Watch In 2015.′ In the article, VH1 wrote, "now there’s a tough new breed of female rappers ready to take on the traditionally male world of hip hop in 2015."

For CL, VH1 wrote, "CL is the leader of K-pop girl group 2NE1 and might not be immediately recognizable as a rap star. But her breakout is a major play at the Western rap market."
