Music website, Stereogum, published its list of ‘The 5 Best Videos of the Week’ with 2NE1‘s ‘Falling in Love‘ on the first place.
The reporter explained, “This one isn’t on this week’s best-songs list because the rest of the Stereogum staff is refusing to see greatness as it stares them directly in the face. History will prove them wrong. Here, the closest thing we have to Destiny’s Child today (and that includes the brief reunion of the actual Destiny’s Child) give us a piece of hazy, sun-dazed pop-reggae that absolutely shits on every American pop star’s clumsy attempts at reggae-interpolation.”
Tom Berihan, the journalist, continued, “I’ve spent entire afternoons with this song on repeat. It destroys. The video can’t quite equal 2NE1′s unbeatable classic ‘I Am The Best,’ but it’s still a total blast, and it actually conveys the idea that these girls enjoy each other’s company, which no other K-pop group has ever managed to pull off. And the pink wig? The all-gold fast-food cup? The better-than-it-has-any-right-to-be rapping? The all-gold Jeep? The guys playing basketball in tiger-striped designer sweatpants? The synchronized body-roll? The spirit-fingers dance? The all-gold Game Boy? CL’s face? Forget it. It’s over. Kill dem.”
2NE1 were picked along artists such as Ciara, Jamie Lidell, Phoenix and Janelle Monáe.
