CL acknowledged Dara’s singing skills more than Teddy ever did and that’s why she gave her more lines, and she also brought Minji and Bom at their best. And then CL is the bad leader who cares for no one else but herself smh
Honestly I don’t agree with this. CL didn’t take complete charge of this album. Teddy himself said this was a collaborative effort. He’s the one that helped make them big with fire and at the end of the day he’s probably the one who taught CL everything she knows. I think he deserves respect. It’s not fair to just dismiss all his work and pin this album’s success solely on CL’s shoulders. With that being said, I do think she’s improved a lot and I’m glad she’s trying her hand at producing. I do think she gets way too much shit.
Hm. CL composed exactly three song while the album has 10. The new sound is in every song, not only in ~cl’s~. They sound better, because
1. they improved.
2. they had more producers.
and second thing is the most important. I think arrangement is not Teddy’s force if it’s not completely build on beats song (like CL’s solo). Like Happy is completely his own and it’s shit.
Crush was arranged by tons of people: Dee.P, PK, Choice, Teddy, usually in teams. When, for example, To Anyone was done almost completely by Teddy alone.
