You And I is Bom’s debut solo digital single and it was released on October 28, 2009.
1. You And I
Bom was originally planed to debut as a soloist before joining 2NE1 and in You And I you can tell why that idea was once possible and why she is the groups main vocalist. An R&B ballad at its heart, this track was just made to be sung by Bom. The synth line that repeats throughout the whole song is brilliant and adds a certain flare to the song, setting it apart from typical piano ballads(although the piano is not absent in this song). Bom delivers an outstanding vocal performance, as would be expected by her and is, thankfully, void of any vocoder work, although it is layered during most of the song. The gorgeous piano melody, R&B beats, repeated synth, Bom’s vocals and the songs heartbroken atmosphere together create the best ballad released in K-Pop for 2009.
