2NE1 is back, along with its staggering presence.

2NE1’s I Love You, which was released on July 5, entered all charts, including those on Melon, Mnet, Dosirak, Bugs, Soribada and Cyworld, from the top and has stayed there since.

The song is also garnering interest overseas. It managed to rise as high as no. 2 on the Electronic Song Chart for iTunes U.S.

I Love You combines electronic and trot to come up with a completely new genre.

That 2NE1, the stylish trend setters, would try out trot came as unexpected to many of the group’s fans, but I Love You incorporates a trot melody on an electronic beat so well that it feels new yet still has the characteristic 2NE1 style in it at the same time.

2NE1 has always tried out a variety of genres, such as electronic, reggae, R&B and ballads, and mixed them with hip-hop; this time again the group showed it aims to take over with even more experimental music.

The group’s performance of the single is also much anticipated. The teaser images of the members previously released showed the members as feminine and sexy women rather than the powerful girls they had always been.

The awaited first performance of I Love You will be revealed through the July 8 broadcast of SBS’ Inkigayo.

2NE1 will then set off to tour 10 cities in seven countries with its global tour New Evolution, starting with the Seoul concert to be held from July 28-29.
