As the two biggest K-pop girl groups in the world, 2NE1 and Girls' Generation will be releasing two new albums on February 24—"Crush" and "Mr.Mr.," respectively.

And while Girls' Generation has already released a music video teaser for their comeback single "Mr.Mr.," 2NE1 fans are still waiting for their own single and music video.


According to Billboard, "Crush" will drop on February 24, along with a teaser for the music video of the yet-to-be-announced single.

The single will then have its music video release on February 28, with reportedly "the largest budget for the group" at $470,000.

This is a slightly different tactic from Girls' Generation, who will release the music video for "Mr.Mr." on February 19, ahead of the album release.

It's hard to tell whether this is intentional, but everyone is anticipating the epic music chart war that will descend upon K-pop when 2NE1 and Girls' Generation release their albums at the same time.

Recently, 2NE1 has received a lot of worldwide attention, including a recent guest star appearance on popular ABC reality series "The Bachelor" and a new endorsement for CL with Maybelline New York.

In addition, 2NE1 has been covering the preparations and plans for their upcoming world tour "All or Nothing."


Could all this buzz put 2NE1 in favor over Girls' Generation, despite the 9-member girl group having one of the most massive fanbase in the K-pop world?
