2NE1’s album hits #1 in the Philippines

When 2NE1’s highly-anticipated first album hit shelves back in September of last year, no one predicted that it would achieve the explosive results that it did.

With a staggering amount of pre-orders, over a million YouTube views for each of their triple title-track MVs, and a triple-crown win, the ladies of 2NE1 can add yet another accomplishment to their ever-expanding resume.

According to data compiled by the Philippines’ music retailers, Astrochart/Astrovision, 2NE1’s album “To Anyone“, became a #1 best-seller! Not only that, but their “First Mini-Album Re-package (CD+DVD)” also claimed the #2 spot on the chart.

The girls wanted to personally thank their Filipino Blackjacks for making this achievement possible, so they uploaded a video expressing their thanks in Tagalog.

Check it out below!


2NE1: Mabuhay Philippines! Wassup, we 2NE1!

Dara: Thank you to all of our Filipino Blackjacks for supporting us. We hope that you will continue to support our new album, “To Anyone.” Mahal namin kayo! (We love you all!)

Bom: Mahal (ko) kayo! (I love you all!)

Saranghae – Sabrina


Dahil sa piling mo’y lagi, kay saya ng aking puso

Para bang ako’y nasa langit na

Ang paligid ay ligaya

Kung ito ma’y panaginip

Ay ayoko nang magising

Ang pag-ibig ko’y patuloy

At aaminin ko sa’yo saranghae



Gusto ko mang gawin

Ang pagpigil sa damdamin ay napakahirap nga naman



Pag nakakasama ka

Lalo lang aong nangangamba

Ba’t di ko masabi na



Lagi kang nasa isipan ko

At ‘wag ka sanang lalayo



Dahil sa piling mo’y lagi, kay saya ng aking puso

Para bang ako’y nasa langit na

Ang paligid ay ligaya

Kung ito ma’y panaginip

Ay ayoko nang magising

Ang pag-ibig ko’y patuloy

At aaminin ko sa’yo saranghae



Talagang ibang-iba

Na itong aking nadarama

Sana’y ‘wag nang matapos pa



Ngunit ‘pag nahalata

Ay wala na ‘kong magagawa

Aaminin ko na



Lagi kang nasa isipan ko

At ‘wag ka sanang lalayo



Dahil sa piling mo’y lagi, kay saya ng aking puso

Para bang ako’y nasa langit na

Ang paligid ay ligaya

Kung ito ma’y panaginip

Ay ayoko nang magising

Ang pag-ibig ko’y patuloy

At aaminin ko sa’yo saranghae



Dahil d’yan lang sa piling mo

Nabubuhay ang puso ko

Natutong umibig

Sana ay ingatang tunay


At sana kung sakali man

Tayo ay mapagbigyan

Na magkatuluyan

Ako ay sa’yo lamang



Dahil sa piling mo’y lagi, kay saya ng aking puso

Para bang ako’y nasa langit na

Ang paligid ay ligaya

Kung ito ma’y panaginip

Ay ayoko nang magising

Ang pag-ibig ko’y patuloy

At aaminin ko sa’yo mahal kita.

Words (Saranghae lyrics) by Arnie Mendaros
