History

The song was announced as a promotional single for Samsung's new phone, "Corby CF"[1], just hours before the songs release. The song was very well received by fans and was even praised by American blogger Perez Hilton.[2] After its release, the song already managed to peak at #1 on various charts just hours after release.

"Follow Me" reached number one on several online charts after its release, battling with contenders such as Girl's Generation's "Oh!"

On South Korea's official Gaon music charts, "Follow Me" managed to land at number one for the weeks of February 7 to February 13, 2010, but dropped in the following weeks.[3]

Music video

There Was no Video planned for 2NE1`s Try to Follow Me (Follow Me) but since the popularity of the song There was one made. This Video premiered March 11, 2010 It was filmed by Seo Hyun Seung (who previously shot their video for I Don't Care") sometime in February, the girls self-choreographed their dance parts.

It begins with, CL in a suit singing the introduction. After, it shows Cl and Dara sharing a motorcycle, then changes to, Minzy and Bom sharing another motorcycle. The verses shows, CL sealed onto a metal bathtub what is upside down with different cameras around her and in her second verse she is wearing a polka dot wig doing a dance. Bom shows her new edgy hair style and in her second verse, it shows her in her own high fashioned clothing. Minzy dances in front of a screen and in her second verse, it shows her laughing at her other self and dancing to the rhythm. Later on, Dara is seen with a gun-blaster as she fights against two Star Wars storm soldiers (later revealed to be CL and Minzy). When Dara shoots the camera with the blaster, it shows all the members in a jungle scene doing a dance. At the end, it shows all of the members dressed up like old fashioned-actresses playing with their feather boas. They do a dance going into each other and then the members change clothes into hip-hop clothing then the song ends (as the song ends it shows CL blowing bubbles and with the scene of the cameras, but normally this was cut out from Korean music channels and the TV show 2NE1 TV).
