"Lollipop" is a song by Big Bang and 2NE1, created to promote a cellphone by LG Cyon.[1] It interpolates the 1958 hit "Lollipop" written by Julius Dixson and Beverly Ross. The song hit the top spot on various online charts, including a 4-week #1 run on music portal M.Net.[2] "Lollipop" was used to debut 2NE1 unofficially, as it does not serve as their debut single.[3] DJ Wreckx remixed the song for Cyon Bboy Championships. The song went to sell over 3 million digital downloads and became a huge-hit in South Korea,[4] topping the Cyworld chart for April 2009.[5]

2NE1 followed up with their "debut" single "Fire".[6]
