Music and lyricsEdit
Collection is mostly classified as pop and dance music. There are also strong elements of R&B and hip hop. The album continues 2NE1's themes of female independence. Much of the music is from 2NE1's earlier releases through the form of Japanese remakes.
Collection contains the songs from two earlier released single albums. The first, "Go Away", was released on November 16, 2011. It contained the songs "Go Away" and "It Hurts". Both songs became included on Collection. The physical single sold 18,000 copies and ranked as high as number fourteen on the Oricon charts.

The album was first announced on the official Japanese website on February 3, 2012. The album was set for the release date of late February, but it was pushed back to coincide with the release of Big Bang's album Alive. 2NE1 made several appearances on music shows in order to promote Collection, in addition to making the album available for sale at Springroove Music Festival.
