Establishment 2ne1

The group was first mentioned by the press in late 2008, when rumours were spreading that YG was creating a female version of Big Bang named Sista. In response to those rumours, YG Entertainment President Yang Hyun Suk stated that the name was not chosen yet. In January 2009, it was announced that the “Female Big Bang” would debut around July 2009 with three members — CL, Minji, and Bom. Later that month, YG stated that Sandara Park joined the group, with one more member to follow. In the end, YG Entertainment announced that the group would consist of four members and debut sometime in May 2009. The company stated that the group had trained for 4 years, and that their debut album would contain songs produced by G-Dragon.The group’s name was initially announced as “21”; however, due to the discovery of a singer with the same name, the group was quickly renamed “2NE1”

Introduction and debut

Their first song was “Lollipop”, digitally released on March 27, 2009. The song was created for LG to promote their Cyon phone, and it was a joint release with Big Bang; the commercial/music video debuted on March 28, 2009. Although it was not a promoted single (as it was an advertisement song, there were problems with network chart eligibility), “Lollipop” proved to be a strong chart hit, going to #1 on various online charts and topping music television network M.Net’s online chart for four weeks in a row. However, questions were raised about the group’s future, as the song’s success was attributed to the popularity of Big Bang.

On April 30, Yang Hyun-suk revealed that 2NE1’s debut song would be a hip-hop/reggae song, and that it would be digitally released on May 6, 2009. Titled “Fire”, the song was fully written and produced by 1TYM’s Teddy Park. Teasers of the song were released on their official website at the beginning of May, with a 20-second clip released on May 1.

“Fire” was released as planned on May 6, with two versions of the music video — a “space” version and a “street” version — released the same day. The videos received over one million views in a day; the viewcount then increased to two million. The video was also profiled on Perez Hilton’s blog.

The group’s first performance of the song was on May 17, 2009, on SBS’s Inki Gayo. beginning the group’s activities.
