Back in 2007, tensions were high between rappers Kanye West and 50 Cent, who were seen as 2 of the biggest rappers of their time. Both artists announced that they were releasing their album on the same day, and 50 decided to toss in that if Kanye outsold his album, he would quit music.
Well round 2 is up, but this time the battle is between two K-pop girl music groups: Girls Generation, and 2NE1. Both girl groups have huge fan bases both in Korea, as well as internationally. Although neither decides to put retirement on the line, the world awaits the battle on the charts to see who will do better with their new releases, set just days apart.
Stay tuned for more details.
