[ARTICLE] 120711 Buzzworthy MTV (USA): 2NE1 on ‘Top 5 Must-Hear Pop Songs Of The Week’
It’s Tuesday! Time for another round of “5 Must-Hear Pop Songs of the Week”!
This week’s round-up includes the latest soon-to-be smash from one of my favorite Brit-pop chanteuses, an unbelievably promising debut by an “X Factor UK” alum, and the brand new singles from not one, but two of K-Pop’s hottest girl groups on the planet.
1.) Marina And The Diamonds, “How To Be A Heartbreaker”
2.) Amelia Lily, “You Bring Me Joy”
3.) 2NE1, “I Love You”
After spending time in the studio with will.i.am to craft their American debut, Queens of K-Pop 2NE1 are back with their first Korean single in over a year: “I Love You.” Based around a K-Pop genre called trot (short for the ballroom two-step “foxtrot”), the electro-encrusted synth-pop gem sees the colorful quartet delivering melodic verses, unbelievably infectious hooks — and even some ferocious rap styling to boot. “I love you every day in every way!” the girls declare. It’s a deliciously addictive, throbbing smash sure to keep their fanbase — the Blackjacks — dancing for weeks.
4.) Wonder Girls featuring Akon, “Like Money”
5.) Lana Del Rey, “National Anthem (Tensnake Remix)”
