Try To Follow Me

Much like its predecessor "Lollipop" this funky tune was created to promote a cellphone, Samsung's "Corby CF". But unlike the first time, the girls were on their own, and even more apparent to fans, they have proven they could carry their own weight. This single was a surprise since YG never announced its making, fans only became aware of its impending release when Samsung announced that the single was to be used for the promotion of their cellphone just hours before its unvieling. Despite this, the song was very well recieved and topped various music charts and even competed with Girl's Generation's own song "OH!"

Follow Me managed to hit number one Gaon's music chart for the weeks of February 7 to February 13, but it dropped in rank during the following weeks. However, it was still a success, its popularity being proven by the end of 2010 with over 1.770.000 downloads plus an additional 650.000 copies sold in 2011, for a total of over 2.400.000 digital copies sold.  

The song was so popular in fact that a music video was created for it despite plans to not make one, the girls even did their own choreography.

This song was heavily praised by American blogger Perez Hilton. 

Follow Me was one of the songs on their later album "To Anyone".

Author-nim I just want to help you correct something... it's about Dara's short Introduction/facts it is written there "Pambansang, Krung-Krung ng Pilapinas" it should be written like this--> 'Pambansang Krung-krung ng Pilipinas' it is written without comma (,) and It's 'Philippines' not "Phillopines" and it should be 'Filipino' not "Phillipino".....anyways I'll look forward to your updates Author-niiiiim!~~ Fighting! ^^v
