IZ*ONE's La Vie en Rose Was Originally CLC's Song

Since the release of IZ*ONE's La Vie en Rose, CLC's fans speculated that this song was originally CLC's. "La Vie en Rose" was produced by the same producer who made CLC's last comeback title track "Black Dress." The song was similar to "Black Dress" as well.



In Hong Kong earlier this year, Elkie spoiled that they would comeback in July or August. The members continued to spoil their comeback to fans. On May 13th, CLC posted photos with roses for rose day. Their fans speculated it was a spoiler for their comeback coming soon. After a few months, CLC's comeback seemed like it was delayed (until this day, CLC has yet to comeback.)


In CLC's reality show (which was just released on November 1st) CLC was told that they would have a comeback soon.

This was recorded on May 11th or earlier (this is according to Eunbin's instagram post since she was wearing the same top as she was in the clip.) In episode 2 of the reality show, the members talked about the concept of their comeback.



They talked about having a strong (girl crush) concept with the song having a strong bass beat yet being soft. This description fit "La Vie en Rose" perfectly.


After this speculation, a video was leaked (now deleted) on twitter with the choreography of IZ*ONE's La Vie en Rose with CLC's version of the song playing.

tbh i would be hella pissed if i were CLC. they haven't had a comeback in months and cube literally gave them hope just to crush it. also imagine Yeeun's rap if they got the song?? we missed out big time.

even if CLC did it instead, knetz still won't recognize how good the song cause CLC's the one doing it. the only one who'll appreciate it are international fans. no matter how good the song is but if the group is not well recognized or appreciated, the song will not do well. just imagine if black dress or hobgoblin were given to blackpink or red velvet it would go crazy but because it was CLC it didn't do that well for them even if both songs were top notch.

"in companies such as cube" tbh i always felt that cube was a tier lower than the big 3 but still worlds apart from the other companies. So i still think of them as a big company. Unfortunately I just don't think CLC caught on like a group like Momoland did. Sometimes it takes luck.

i disagree, izone still has better vocalists. even then, it doesn't matter if CLC sung it better. what matters is money and izone (a group which has huge international attention and has both korean and japanese fanbases) is much more profitable than CLC. for once, this isn't really CUBE's fault. the producers that own the song chose to sell it to someone else, not much CUBE can do if they don't have the rights to the song.

I feel for them, this is surely a shame. I love both groups, but I honestly can't decide if I'd prefer to keep the original with CLC or with IZ*ONE. Both sound great for different reasons, and both bring different charms to the piece. There's no denying that the song is great, as well as the fact that IZ*ONE's debut popularity is a definite boost to the piece overall. However, this market is so fickle, so there's no way of knowing if this would have helped boost CLC's popularity, or kept it relatively the same. I've heard some songs of theirs do very well that I thought were just okay, and others that I thought were wonderful that really didn't make much of a difference for them. The fact that this group (CLC) still can't get their first win is also very telling. They're beginning to hit that mark where the group is slowly but surely going to be put on the back burner for other, younger, more successful groups, which is a sad reality of this industry. I feel for them, I really do, but they are hardly the first to have something like this happen from plenty of companies big and small- and honestly, I highly doubt they will be the last.

im trying so hard not to be annoyed but the CLC girlies really got dicked. like i know this is how the industry is but the CLC members are victims of poor management and weird scandals and it just sucks to know that they know that they got finessed because of money and competition. izone's version of la vie en rose slaps but I WILL BE WAITING FOR CLC TO POP OUT AND GIVE ME THE FULL DEMo! I NEED YEEUN'S RAP! AND SEUNGHEE PRECHORUS WAS SUPERIOR!

Stop comparing which group sang it better. Yes, it was a missed opportunity for CLC but in the end, only the producer/composer of the song has the right to decide which group he/she wants in the song. I'm pretty sure the same composer has the capability to produce more bops for CLC in future.

I feel like there’s definielty a backstory here that we’re missing and I can’t help but wonder why it was scrapped for CLC. I doubt the answer was the producers of the song being like “wait, there’s a Produce 48 girl group that needs a song, we’re going to give it to them instead!” Because if you think about it, CLC was hinting about it back in May, BEFORE Produce48 even started airing. And they said they were planing to make a comeback in July or August. Produce 48 ended on August 31st, so if CLC we’re making a comeback with the song, they with would’ve already by then or there probably would’ve been official teasers being released. So my guess is either this song was never meant to be a title track for CLC, or Cube and/or the producers scrapped this song long before Produce48 ended. At the end of the day, I thought IZ*ONE did an amazing job with it and it was a solid debut for them. Yes it would’ve been great to see this as CLC’s comeback because it does fit them really well. But I guess what’s done is done and there was a reason behind it that we don’t know about.

I don't think they feel so bad honestly, if the comeback was delayed so much is probably cause they weren't sure about the song or the concept they wanted for the comeback. I don't think they got the song stolen last minute as some people online is saying.

This happens all the time in the music industry. Producers give their songs away to people and groups who are more famous then the one it was originally intended and they tweak it a little to suit the group. They do it to make more money and for clout so they’ll get more work. I think it was a smart move on their part but I still feel bad for CLC because this could’ve been the song that makes them more famous

This is so sad for CLC, La Vie en Rose definitely fits with the comeback concept they were hinting at and they would have done an amazing job of the song. Who knows what happened there but one can imagine they might have in part been victims of (G)-IDLE's unexpected success and other brewing dramas in the company.


Of course it doesn't really matter in terms of CLC's future: if they'd released this song it would most likely have been largely ignored like all the other great tracks they've released, although it's a lot more (Korean) public-friendly than some of their other songs so who knows? Maybe being linked to a song that has become so successful with a new and popular group will do more for CLC than actually having released the song themselves would...

I love CLC, but this song is not as good as some people are claiming. It has so much attention because the group just got out of a popular show, but it's not catchy or remarkable. Maybe they scrapped it because they saw it wasn't good enough. Black Dress was a much better contender and that's the direction CLC needs to keep taking if they want to have some sort of success :)

Does anyone know why korean fans don't really like CLC? I see it mentioned so many times and as an international fan that loves them, I never understood why they don't do well. Is it because they don't do the cutesy concept? Besides EXID, BP, and G-Idle, (used to be AOA too & 2NE1) almost every group does super girly & cutesy and Korean fans seem to eat that up. It seems like it takes a special group to come forward with something different & do well - yet CLC can do many styles. They have really good visuals, good dancers, & good vocals. I don't get it. It makes me think that even if CLC had this they wouldn't do well, yet izone does it & it's super girly and cutesy & everyone (Korean fans at least) die for it.

True that! Unfortunately with so many groups debuting now every month there are bound to be all types of groups that don't make it even if they follow the perfect "recipe" for a popular girlgroup. I just meant that majority of all popular girl groups that are popular especially in Korea are cutesy except for a few groups who seem to rise above that - but they typically have massive international fan bases so maybe that's why?

I feel sorry for CLC. Songs change hands all the time but for them to have a official demo and be thinking that this would be the comeback song (which is great and would have boosted them after Black Dress), is sad.


However their fans are getting annoying. Cube messed up CLC in terms of giving them a identity, they switched back and firth and didn't grab a spot in the aegyo or girl crush concept before BlackPink and TWICE. Cube is no small time company but a established one and they gave CLC consist comebacks. Neither Western fans, Korean or other Asain fans click with CLC, its partly because of Cube changing concepts and sound so much. Stop acting like CLC has been robbed they haven't people just don't stan them and don't have to.
