A lot of people commenting on CL’s US debut whether negative or positive are so annoying and misinformed.
1. Anyone expecting CL to be a hit with her debut single is a fool and anyone trashing her for not automatically being successful is a bigger fool.
2. Far too much weight is being put on her debut, no one in the US gives a damn about the song someone debuts with. It’s the song that becomes successful that people care about. It took Kehlani 3 years to chart on the Billboard Hot 100
3. Producers are important, no more Teddy productions. His name carries no weight in the US. PND, Diplo, Skrillex, DJ Khaled, Pharrell, Calvin Harris, Mike Will Made It, The Chainsmokers. Scooter Braun has the money and the pull to hire famous producers. Also she needs to decide if she’s gonna be a singer or a rapper because with chicks like Cardi B coming up there’s no room CL’s weak bars. Silly lyrics are fine if you’re a singer, not so great if you’re a rapper. Better to be a singer that raps than a rapper that sings.
4. Coming back to Korea was a mistake. People give CL flack for supposedly being selfish but after Lifted was released and she returned to Korea to make a 2NE1 she fucked up. Lifted charted onto the Billboard Hot 100 chart at 94, which is really the only chart that matters and is not something kpop fans can manipulate. She should have kept releasing music, if she really wanted it to happen she should have let 2NE1 die instead of trying to revive the corpse.
