Collection is the first full-length Japanese album by 2NE1. The album was released on March 28, 2012, along with Big Bang's Alive and the corresponding single "Scream".

The first single from the album was "Go Away", released November 16, 2011, and the second, "Scream", was released on the same day as the album release.

Development and backgroundEdit

The album was announced on February 3, 2012. The majority of the album's songs are Japanese versions of previous Korean releases. "Go Away" was released as a single album, Go Away, the previous year in November. Two of the songs, "Ugly" and "I am the Best" were released on the Japanese mini-album release Nolza previously.

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.

SinglesEdit

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 next single album included in Collection is "Scream". "Scream" was released on the same day as Collection, and contained the songs "Scream" and "Fire".

Chart performanceEdit

On the first day of release, Collection charted at number four on the Oricon charts. The set sold around 8,500 copies on the first day of release. The set charted at number five for its debut week and sold 22,224 copies in the first week of release.

PromotionEdit

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.
