The answer to the "Who's Next?" teasers reveal that 2NE1's leader CL will be releasing her first Solo Single, which will be on May 28th.
Three months ago on an interview with Billboard, CL revealed that she was planning on releasing her 1st solo album this year. CL told Billboard "I'm planning to have my solo album out this year, after 2NE1. I was looking back and thinking, 'I want to have something personal for me.' With 2NE1, it's not personal because it's not only about me; it's about all the members. We're more about influencing the world. But I have so many things I want to say. I have this other side of me that people didn't meet in 2NE1,"
Keep on logging onto GoKpop for CL's MV on May 28th.
