Blackjacks are amazing! It was only last Friday (December 3rd) when Universal Records and 2NE1PH announced that "Go Away" will be the first official 2NE1 music video to be promoted from their "To Anyone" album. Several Blackjacks had mixed reactions, some wanting the other MVs like the dramatic "It Hurts" or the hip-hop "Clap Your Hands" or the bouncy "Can't Nobody". Some even wanted their latest CF MV "Don't Stop The Music". This reaction is normal because when 2NE1 promoted their "To Anyone" album in Korea, they actually released three (3) MVs simultaneously! That's just pretty awesome for YG Entertainment to give our girls that much importance!
Blackjacks' opinions may vary but they all have one goal - to give 2NE1 their third #1 MV in the Philippines! Both "Fire" and "I Don't Care" went to the #1 spot on MYX Countdowns. These two (2) MVs plus 3 other MVs and 5 bonus tracks will be included in the Free DVD as part of the 2NE1's "The First Mini Album" Repackage which Universal Records will release this December!
After 3 days on MYX, 2NE1 "Go Away" entered the MYX Daily Top 10 at #3! Great job Blackjacks!

2NE1 is really unstoppable! In this year's Mnet Asian Music Awards, 2NE1 bagged 2 of the 3 major awards including Artist Of The Year and Album Of The Year for "To Anyone" album! Not only that, 2NE1 also won Female Group Award and Best Music Video for "Can't Nobody". That's a total of 4 awards out of the several awards given out that night. It's actually 5 awards if you include the Best Digital Single Park Bom received for her solo effort "You and I".
Watch out for the Philippine album release of 2NE1's "To Anyone" and "The First Mini Album" Repackage (CD+DVD) this December! Universal Records and 2NE1PH are cooking up something exciting for the album launch! Blackjacks start saving up!
