2NE1 delays their debut Japanese release
Girl group sensation, 2NE1, amped up their Japanese fans with their plans to enter the Japanese music market. After announcing that they were signing under Avex Entertainment, fans waited patiently for further updates.
Unfortunately, Avex recently posted a notice on 2NE1’s official homepage, and said the following:
“We have an announcement about 2NE1’s Japanese release.
First of all, we received an overwhelming response after announcing 2NE1’s Japanese debut with us, so we would like to thank you for that.
YG Entertainment Japan and Avex Entertainment have decided to delay the release of 2NE1’s Japanese album, originally scheduled for December 8th, in order to meet the high expectations.
To be more specific, we wanted to make sure the content was absolutely satisfactory for their debut in Japan.
It will make the fans wait a little longer, but the company asks for the fans’ understanding, patience, and continued support as they prepare 2NE1’s Japanese debut to meet everyones’ anticipations and expectations.“
Avex also advised fans to disregard any declarations made by “outside sites” about the album being “cancelled”.
Could the girls be planning a completely new tracklist for their Japanese album? Or are they simply perfecting their Japanese interpretations for their previously-released tracks? Either way, we know that with the delay, the anticipation has just increased tenfold!
