AS 2NE1

2NE1 IS OWNED BY YG AGENCY and gave them the name of 21 for the reason of a young and fresh group  , but they realized that already has existed an artist with this name so they changed quickly to 2NE1  with inted of (NE) as "NEW EVOLUTION" being their pronunciation a variant of (twenty-one) (two-en-ee-one) , at the start was planned that the girls will debut separately but the his producer TEDDY collected them to record together and so was born 2NE1 , before that they were under trainee for 4 years o_0.

At first the group would be formed only by CL , Bom and Minzy but in January of 2009 YG announced that Sandara would be part of the group too and began to speculate that there would be another member just to be something like the female version of BIGBANG
(BTW BIGBANG IS SOMETHING LIKE THE BIG BROTHER OF 2NE1 AND ALL THE ARTIST OF YG ARE CONSIDER PART OF YG FAMILY ) JUST FOR THOSE WHO DIDN'T KNEW



In March 2009 2NE1 came together with Bigbang to launch the digital single "lollipop" that was created  for a tv commercial of a LG cellphone although it wasn't used as a single at it was a tv commercial song , there were ranking problems because it turned to be a success song reaching the top in rankings
