2NE1 is Now Playing on US Radio Stations

On October 21st (Korean Time), Billboard has reported that 2NE1’s hit track “I am the Best” is playing on American radio stations.

Since October 19th, it has played 24 times on WBMP New York and 14 times on WODS Boston. Both stations have even written about the group on their websites with WODS Boston even recommending the song to listeners.

A few weeks ago “I am the Best” earned its best selling sales week in the US and also topped Billboard’s World Digital Song Chart. It currently sits at #2 on the charts.

Since August, “I Am the Best” has been used as the background song for Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 tablet ad, and the song has been gaining much attention and interest from the advertisement.

Aside from PSY, 2NE1 is the only other Korean act with a non-English song to hit the US radio stations.

Earlier in February, 2NE1 released their second full-length album “CRUSH” and it reached #61 on the Billboard 200, the highest ranking a Korean act has ever achieved.

In other related news, CL is planning to break into the US music industry next spring under the management of Scooter Braun.

    I honestly thought this would have happened soon after their release, but when it died down and nothing happened I was really disappointed. It was a perfect song for hyping the girls and their music.. but thankfully its starting again!! CL having her solo around the corner sure helps with promotion.. but I hope this keeps 2NE1 on track of entering the West as a group! I’d hate to see them do a DC soon as CL goes solo.. ;_; It’d be so painful!
