2NE1- Take The World On (Not official song, but very interesting)

This is not the official song release, and according to the person who uploaded the song, part of this was looped.  I did read in Wikipedia that the official release will be in August.  Is anyone else counting the days and hours until we can listen to their new song?  I sure am.  Can 2NE1 join Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, and some other artists near the top of pop songs this year?

Since they didn't officially release this song before July 1, that's the reason the song wasn't considered fosr the first half of the year.  Also, for all artists/groups, the lyrics are very important, and one problem dance-pop and electro/dance pop had was a lack of lyrics, and I'm trying to say not enough lyrics. 
The music sounded great in a couple of dance hits that were close to getting in my "Pop 10", but I think more lyrics were needed.  "Where Have You Been" by Rihanna and "Let's Go" by Calvin Harris, featuring Ne-Yo had everything but enough lyrics, so I went with Katy Perry's "Wide Awake" at Number 10. 

Note: All songs on my lists are the official song releases and not dance remixes.  For example, I did hear the dance version of "Wide Awake" and it's okay I suppose, but I definitely think the radio single is much better.  The radio version of this song was the one on the list.  I also allowed the Explicit Version of "Starships" by Nicki Minaj.  I did not mention this with the list for a reason, which is to protect children or teenagers that aren't ready to hear that version.  They should listen to the song on the radio or buy the clean version of the song.  I bought as download two versions of the song but now have computer problems and think I lost those songs and other songs too.  I also bought the CD and mentioned it on my blog Fast Food Yummy.

Because of computer problems and the computer viruses on the internet (so I don't trust the internet anymore), I will go back to buying mostly music CDs, so hopefully 2NE1 and some other artists will please release and distribute more CDs to stores where they are sold.  Thank you.

Note:  I changed the Title (of this post) because I feel it's important to point out this isn't the actual song.  I don't know what the official song will sound like but we should all find out soon.  I hope the song gets lots of radio play, so DJs please play the 2NE1 radio single.
