Our queen CL has just dropped her latest song ‘Lover Like Me,’ and we at THP absolutely love it! This banger is CL’s second pre-release single following ‘Spicy.’ And it comes before her first full-length album ALPHA, set to release in October.
CL has proved her talents as a singer, rapper, and overall artist for more than a decade. She can pull off any music genre, and we’re so excited to see what else she has in store for ALPHA. Whether she sings or raps, her lyrics are incredible. Here are seven of the most powerful lyrics by CL that are sure to make you feel confident and validated.
“If you’re gonna let me go
You will never ever find another lover like me
No lover like me”
In the chorus of her new single ‘Lover Like Me,’ CL knows that she can’t be replaced. Anyone who comes after her will never be the same as her. This is your sign to get over that one person because they’re missing out on the best thing they’ll ever have. And the beat drop after this line? We got goosebumps.
“This is for all my bad girls around the world
Not bad meaning bad but bad meaning good, you know
Let’s light it up and let it burn like we don’t care
Let em know how it feels damn good to be bad”
Of course, we had to reference CL’s iconic debut as a solo artist with ‘The Baddest Female’ in 2013. We still can’t get over these lines. CL is a role model, and we love to stan someone who is unapologetically herself. It really feels damn good to be bad. So don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
“Envy and jealousy are the shadows of success
C to the L, the godmother of Korean culture
You’re just a shadow I can’t see at all”
CL brushes off her haters in ‘Hwa,’ a single that was released in 2020 and will also be featured in ALPHA. She’s really schooling all of us with these powerful lyrics. Your success has nothing to do with other people’s jealousy. And if you shine bright, that’s all that matters. Let the haters lurk in the shadows.
“Still, I have the palette that hasn‘t lost that definite taste
Before you judge me, change up your time first”
Queen CL claps back at her haters once again in her pre-release single ‘Spicy.’ Her songs have always been timeless, and the people who try to shut her down need to check themselves. She has been thriving as an artist, and they’re just mad that they’re irrelevant now.
“I don’t ever wanna think about you
Matter fact that’s the last word
That I’m ever gonna sing about you
In ‘Done 161201,’ a track from her 2019 EP, CL sings about finally letting go of someone who didn’t deserve her. You can apply these empowering lyrics to any of your problems in your relationship, family, or job. You are allowed to set your boundaries and cut off that one person who’s holding you back!
“I’ve always been good without you
Who are you pointing fingers at
Thought you were better
But you’re cheap”
CL’s lyrics are for people who need to realize their self-worth, like in ‘I Quit 180327’ from the In The Name of Love EP in 2019. CL has seen a lot of criticism in her career. And we’re glad that she can proudly express her true self through her music now. It’s important to know who you are and know your worth.
“I ain’t wasting my energy and time playing games with you
Bring it on, let me show you how I got this crown”
If we could include all of the lyrics of ‘I Quit 180327,’ we would. Not only does CL rap this part so well, but the lyrics are a much-needed reminder to not waste your time on those who belittle you and try to control your life. You don’t have to put up with it, queen.
CL truly makes us feel like we can do anything. If you’re ever doubting yourself, listen to CL. And really listen. Her powerful lyrics give us the ultimate confidence boost, and they should be in your daily affirmations.
