      K-pop girl group 2NE1's second full-length album "Crush" has been chosen as one of the 20 Best Pop Albums of 2014 by U.S. music magazine Rolling Stone, YG Entertainment said on Sunday.

      "Crush" was the only Asian album to make the list, which included Taylor Swift's "1989," Pharrell Williams' "Girl," Ariana Grande's "My Everything" and Maroon 5's "V."

      "Female foursome 2NE1, buoyed by a cameo on 'The Bachelor,' moved more units of their album in its first week of release than any previous Korean act," the magazine said.

      The group made a cameo appearance on the popular American reality dating show on Jan. 27.

      "Crush" swept online music charts here immediately after its release in February and ranked 61st on the Billboard 200, the highest spot achieved by a Korean artist or group to date.
