2NE1’s First Award for “Fire” is #1 Illegally Downloaded Song

2NE1 fire

Newcomer group 2NE1 has been #1 on illegal music download sites for 2nd week consecutively.

On illegal music download sites P2P and Webhard and also several other cafe sites, 2NE1’s debut song ‘Fire’ is #1 for the 2nd week taking up 24% of illegal music download contents.

This group has been famous even before their debut with their hit CM song ‘Lollipop’ and their nickname as the ‘female Big Bang‘. Even though this does show the group and the song popularity, it certainly have some harms on the legal single downloads. This also points to the need of more copyright controls on music content.

The rest of the chart results:

1. 2NE1 ‘Fire’
2. SeeYa, Davichi and JiYeon with ‘Female Generation’ (from #4 last week)
3. 2PM with hook song ‘Again & Again’
4. Super Junior with ‘It’s You’
5. ChaeYeon ‘Shake’

As we already know, ChaeYeon’s 2nd comeback album this time was also leaked out before the official release date. Plus because of the inappropriate content in the MV to the song ‘Shake’, the MV was banned from broadcast. Now that her song is #5 on illegal music download chart, it seemed that coming back as just sexy is so not enough for ChaeYeon.

    Nah, trust me, these illegal downloads aren’t going to be a problem for a group this popular. The fact that they’re so popular from illegal downloads if proof of their success. They’re going to sell more than enough, the P2P isn’t really a factor.
