.2NE1’s CL calls on the KPop industry to recognize the influence of Black artists.

In a powerful statement on her Instagram, 2NE1’s CL encouraged the K-pop industry to acknowledge the influence of Black artists and stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter. The rapper took to her Instagram on Thursday, June 4, to share a post in which she explained how Black musicians, including Destiny’s Child and Lauryn Hill, have influenced her as an artist.

“The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill was the first album my dad bought me. Beyoncé’s Dangerously in Love was the first CD I bought for myself,” CL wrote. “Janet Jackson taught me the power of movement of dance and expression. Missy Elliott is why I am so obsessed with my video visuals. Lil’ Kim was one of fashion’s pioneers that taught me how to be fearless in how I tell stories through clothes…Aaliyah is the reason why I still wear baggy pants and combat boots on stage.
