[NEWS] YG Ladies Group 2NE1 “21st Century New Evolution”

31 03 2009

YG has officially decided not to use “To Anyone,”since that is already being used by the artist 21 (To Anyone).

He said, “I’m so sorry to 21. We did not check in advance if anyone else had the name.” This is not something to complain about, btw. An artist already had that name so it really isn’t fair.

2NE1 will be their official name. “NE” stands for New Evolution, and the “21″ also stands for the 21st century. Therefore, 2NE1 will be the new evolution of the 21st century.

YG also said, “2NE1 will be introduced as a female group with always having new challenges with a new form of music.

A YG rep said, “2NE1 will formally debut in May, and have been preparing for 4 years for good songs and activities this year.”
