On November 29th at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, the 2011 MAMA occurred where one of the special stages included a collaboration stage between Black Eyed Peas’ Will.i.am and Apl.de.ap and 2NE1’s CL performing “Where Is The Love?” MTV Iggy, an MTV network channel, has selected their performance as the best joint stage and said, “The K-Pop star creates freshness to the Black Eyed Peas’ song ‘Where is the Love.'”
2NE1 was also praised for their style by MTV STYLE, who also pointed out their collaboration with well-known designer Jeremy Scott. The girl group was included in the Top 12 Girls to Watch in 2012 list.
Meanwhile, 2NE1 along with their fellow YG artists are currently in Japan to prepare for their YG Family concert that will occur on January 7th and 8th in Osaka at the Kyocera Dome. They will then visit Tokyo January 21st and 22nd at the Saitama Super Arena to hold another set of concerts.
