The wait was worth it. After a very long 7 years of waiting, the singer CL, one of the stars of K-pop, finally released her long-awaited album entitled "ALPHA".

This event occurred exactly on Wednesday, October 20. And it was something extremely special for his thousands of fans.

The long wait did not disappoint K-pop fans. The album has a total of 11 songs. There CL shows his talent for rap, although there are also melodic sounds.

It has a video clip of the song "Tie a Cherry", where you can see CL wearing flashy costumes. That song is already available on YouTube.

CL had already delighted us with the singles "H ₩ A" and "5STAR", with which he demonstrated his musical talent. He immediately garnered a huge fan base and was eagerly awaiting the release of his album.

Unfortunately, that was postponed due to various family problems. Recovering from the emotional trauma of her mother's death took a long time, so the delay is understandable.

Finally, CL released her album ALPHA: A Long Wait of 7 Years

CL was born in South Korea and became known as the leader of the band 2NE1, an iconic group within the k-pop genre.

She was included in the staff of YG Entertainment, where she tried to start a solo career, without much success.

CL was inactive for a time, after his group disbanded in 2017.

To achieve the release of her album “ALPHA, CL had to terminate the contract with YG Entertainment. And so, when she was freed to unleash her creativity, she was able to produce it under her own label, called Very Cherry Records.

The album is now available in its digital version for all who wish to hear it. The version on physical discs will be available from October 22 in the countries selected for this type of commercialization.

The ALPHA tracklist

Among the songs included on the album are SPICY and Lover Like Me, which had previously been released as previews for this project.

Next we will show you the 11 songs that make up this new musical stage of CL:


2. Lover Like Me.

3. Chuck.

4. Xai.

5. Let It.

6. Tie a Cherry.

7. Paradise.

8. My Way.

9. Siren.

10. Hwa.

11. 5 Star.

Let's remember that CL already made history this year during its time at the MET Gala. She and BLACKPINK member Rosé both became the first female K-pop idols to be invited to the event that fashionistas enjoy each year.

CL took this opportunity to pay tribute to his home country. She wore a long open denim dress.

The theme was American style, but she wanted to make a clear nod to her roots, since the knot of the dress was like that of hanboks, traditional Korean dresses.

Her hairstyle was also a clear allusion to Asian culture.

We emphasize that this is something that CL has been in charge of bringing to his music. She has thousands of followers from all over the world, but she has never forgotten where she comes from.

She keeps her essence intact, so we are sure that those characteristics will be preserved in her debut album ALPHA that she has released solo and under her own label.
