“Respecting each other’s opinions, we came to an agreement with CL to end her exclusive contract. We express deep gratitude to the fans who have shown for CL, who shined with her activities as an artist of YG,” they said.

“At YG, CL debuted with 2NE1 in 2009, and while promoting as a leader and rapper, she led trends in various areas including music and fashion. She also left a major mark in the history of K-pop when she became the first Korean solo female artist to chart in the Billboard Hot 100 on October 12, 2016. We ask for lots of interest and support for CL’s new activities, and YG will also cheer her on with unchanging trust and affection. Thank you.”
