2NE1’s ‘I Am The Best’ places #21 on ‘The 25 Best Singles Of 2011’ from SLANT Magazine
Just days ago on December 13th, 2NE1’s ‘I Am The Best’ was placed lucky number #21 on SLANT Magazine within the category ‘The 25 Best Singles Of 2011’ .
SLANT also commented on 2NE1 and their single ‘I Am The Best’ stating:
“One of 2011′s best developments was that the Western world finally discovered the unmitigated joy of K-Pop. Even within a music scene characterized by its fearless appropriation of pop, hip-hop, and dance styles, 2NE1′s “I Am the Best” is a jaw-dropping, vibrant triumph of pure swagger and verve. Really, who’s going to argue with logic like “Even if you were me/You’d be envious of this body” or stand in the crosshairs for 2NE1′s machine-gun “rah-tah-tah” hook? It ain’t bragging if it’s true, and 2NE1′s “I Am The Best” makes its case airtight.”
This was a great achievement for the girls and K-POP as they were placed with other big time artists such as Beyonce, ADELE, Lady Gaga and Britney Spears.
