"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 official debut single Fire.[6]

Promotion[edit]

The song was used for cellphone LG Cyon.[7] It charted number one on offline and online charts in Korea.[8] It was not performed on any TV show except YG's 2010 Tour. "Fire" was marked as 2NE1's official debut.

Music video[edit]

The video was filmed in the first week of March 2009. It premiered on March 28, 2009. The video shows both groups dancing together in rainbow and multi-colored shot. A behind-the-scenes version was premiered a few weeks later on May 2, 2009. The video was directed by Hyun Young-seong. On May 15, 2009, YG Entertainment's official YouTube uploaded the full music video.[9]

The original video showed 2NE1 singing in front of a white screen for the intro, then introduces both BIGBANG and 2NE1 together in a color-changing room. Each is introduced in a solo act with the following rooms:

  • T.O.P in a red or yellow room
  • G-Dragon in a pink or blue room
  • Dara in a purple room
  • CL in a purple or green room
  • Minzy in a pink room (later edited into a red room, as well)
  • Taeyang in a blue or purple room
  • Seungri in a yellow or red room, donning glasses
  • Daesung in a pink room
  • Bom in a pink room (later edited into a blue room, as well)

A alternate version was later made that did not show the bit of 2NE1 in front of the white screen. Instead, it was replaced with Dara in her blue room, whereas she performed the verse. Other scenes were changed to include the promotion for the LG CYON cell phone.
