Five Girl Power Girl Groups
2NE1 – Go Away
With the latest release of 2NE1’s animated music video, Hate You [MV], in which the girls in animated form take on a guy who has done rapper of the group, CL, wrong. It seems there is no stopping the girls.
The group seems to be South Korea’s — or Kpop’s — answer to strong but fun girl groups. In their 2010 video Go Away, directed by Eun-taek Cha, CL is fighting with her boyfriend, which leads to some heavy-handed abuse. The ultimate message? Set yourself free before it’s too late.
Here’s a version with English subtitles if you really want to know about the song.
TLC – No Scrubs
When the world lost Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, the world was left with an incomplete TLC. Their last album, 3D, had the lead single Girl Talk [MV], but it never soared to the heights of No Scrubs in 1999, which became an anthem to women with loser boyfriends.
Of course, the trio also gave women the song Unpretty [MV].
