But instead of taking the spotlight on by herself, the 2NE1 leader decided to bring the band back together. In CL's Instagram post, the K-pop idol talked about how thankful she was for everything in her career and why she decided to invite the other 2NE1 members.
As per CL, the reason why she wanted to invite the other 2NE1 members on stage for her Coachella 2022 performance was that she hoped that they would be able to reunite on their own before it was too late.
"By going on that stage, I really wanted to see the people who protected us and stayed with us all these times and thank them for the past 13 years of love and support for 2NE1. That being said, today has been such an important and meaningful day for me of all," 2NE1's CL added.
Furthermore, not only was the 2NE1 leader thankful for the opportunity, but CL also shared her emotions after 2NE1's performance. "I hope, with the emotions that flowed through us today, that we're able to remember and feel the things that we used to in the past," CL emotionally penned.
CL then expressed that she is grateful for her members who shined on stage with her on that day. She is also grateful to everyone who made such a performance possible. "I'm going to keep going until I get to perform the whole hour on my own," 2NE1's CL concluded.
