In Focus: K-Pop Covers That Reminded Us Our Love For 2NE1 Will Never Go Away


Do you ever get emotional when you think of 2NE1 that you just don't know what to do because no matter how much cards you put on the table to get them back together it'll never be enough? Because same. We miss them so bad!

Having new kings and queens on the K-pop block is one thing, but 2NE1? The way they reign supreme is on another level. No one can dethrone that great time in music when Bom, CL, Dara, and Minzy were together on stage performing their hits "Fire," "Follow," "Ugly,"—the list goes on—and had us all helplessly jamming along. Even the present generation of idols can't deny their impact, making us realize that we are not alone in this nostalgia. Let these covers prove that:

"Can't Nobody" by Momoland

Girls of Momoland Daisy, Nancy, and Jooe took their Blackjack hearts to the top during their Dubai concert in January as they sang the 2010 fan favorite song of 2NE1. Their mutuals in the crowd of Merries sure went "Awww" 'cause we definitely did.

"Lonely" by Astro

We never realize how lonely we are without 2NE1 until Astro's Sanha, Moonbin, and MJ covered this highest-charting single of the girl group in 2011. We're in tears.

"Missing You" by Winner

We're just here bringing back this performance of our boys Jinwoo, Seunghoon, Mino, and Seungyoon because it will always remain superior among all their covers. Your 2NE1 sunbaenims are proud, we just know.

"You and I" by BLACKPINK's Rosé

Roseann Park taking Bom's solo to new heights just felt so right. No one could do it like her because we all know when it comes to vocals, the BLACKPINK member is next in line. Blackjacks and Blinks, rise!

"Fire" by (G)I-DLE

The six-member girl group tried to set the roof on fire when they did 2NE1's debut single in Queendom and, for the record, they made it. Call us dramatic, but it really did take our breaths away.

"I Don't Care" by Mamamoo

It's no secret that Hwasa and Wheein are long-time 2NE1 stans. So can we say  that their years of being Blackjacks have paid off when they got the chance to perform "I Don't Care" even if it's during their pre-debut days? We can only hope for a full Mamamoo cover in the future!

Who else can deny that 2NE1 is still one of the best girl groups in the world? No one, of course. They are iconic, royalty, and legendary. They'll forever be in our hearts, and they'll never go away. Now, excuse us while we let our hearts go nolza and fight for our queens!
