This past week has a been a good week for female vocals in my book. 2ne1‘s new hit single “UGLY” takes the bite as the catchiest frequency having reached my ears thus far. While the lyrics are dark, there’s nothing really like screaming I AM UGLY on a hot summer night. It’s liberating to say the least. I take it that they’re not lamenting their physical appearance, but rather acting as a medium to relay to the world the insecurities so many girls have about themselves. Not to mention, the video’s got some serious attitude. And it’s never old to hear CL’s unique robotic self auto tuning voice.
I think I’m UGLY, No body wants to LOVE me, Just like her, I want to be Pretty, I want to be PRETTY…. (They do say “pretty” a little weird.)
