K-Pop sensation CL is working on an English album for U.S. audiences. On a racy new cut, “Doctor Peper,” she knocked out with Diplo — almost by mistake — the South Korean star busts out some flow that fits right it in with the trap-dance sound. Lately, she’s been in the studio with Diplo and few other notable names, so expect some other big records to be coming out very soon.

“Diplo canceled a session on me, and I was so mad at him. I was drinking a can of Dr. Pepper and wrote the song so I could go home as soon as possible,” CL told The FADER, explaining the song’s glorious nonsense refrain. “Diplo ended up loving it!”

“I’ve been active in CL’s first full-length album,” he said, “mostly trying to find a right balance between glossy K-pop attitude and keeping CL positioned where she belongs—as the baddest coolest female out right now. ‘Doctor Pepper’ is something that might not register that well with actual K-pop, seeing as it’s a straight Atlanta-style rap record, but the net around K-pop is so wide that it can be anything with confidence and style. Thats what CL brings to it.” Here, he let’s her thrive.
