So, CL is set to have a much-anticipated American rap debut and now we have an inkling of an idea for what may be in store for audiences.
I’m just not sure if this snippet/preview/soda advertisement is what people had in mind. Taken from a Diplo snapchat, at least one of CL’s rap tracks appears be an ode to Dr. Pepper (Dear. Lord.):
Edit: YG Entertainment took down the clip (which lends credence to it being CL on the track). If another one surfaces, I’ll update the post accordingly. The lyrics are given below.
CL should be a natural candidate for an American debut due to her fluency in English. Her past attempts at rapping in English AT LEAST demonstrate a a level of competency that should make an American single passable.
So, it’s baffling to see what this “preview” accomplishes. Even if it’s an intro, it’s laughably awful. I’m not sure who penned these lyrics but look upon them and weep for the future of music.
Dr. Pepper, Dr. Pepper
Chilling in the freezer
When I’m under pressure
I put it on ice, bitch
I’ve heard better rap verses compiled by a committee of drunk college kids playing King’s Cup.
To be fair, it may be too early to judge. Hopefully, this is just a rough cut that was put together as a placeholder for a more polished future effort.
