International K-pop superstar CL has released ‘Lover Like Me’, the second single from her forthcoming album ALPHA.

Following the sizzling single ‘SPICY’, ‘Lover Like Me’ continues CL’s new music chapter found within her upcoming album ALPHA, which is scheduled for release on October 20.

The new track displays the K-pop superstar’s singing prowess, and symbolises independence, confidence and attitude with her artistry.

A winner for the 2019 People’s Choice Award for ‘The Most Inspiring Asian Woman, CL has collaborated with the likes of the Black Eyed Peas, Lil Yachty, Skrillex and Diplo.
