East Meets West: 10 K-Pop / Foreign Artist Collaborations

By in News posted Oct July 26th, 2014 No comments

K-pop has turned into something of an infectious global phenomenon as it"s no longer exclusive to South Korea alone. People enjoy the K-pop brand all over the world, and to accommodate the spike in interest and range of different cultures now tuning in, K-pop artists have reached out overseas to collaborate with Western artists. This mutual give and take of styles and composition has officially inaugurated K-pop as a global genre as opposed to simply a Western imitation.

East meets West in these 10 K-pop/Foreign Artist Collaborations:

1. Wonder Girls ft. School Gyrls, "The DJ is Mine"

The collaboration between these two five-member girl groups of different nationalities is interesting. Taking into consideration the American girl group, School Gyrls (produced by Nick Cannon), and the Korean girl group, Wonder Girls, the song synthesizes both of their styles into an easily addictive dance track

K-pop and Biases: When You Lose One Written by Alolika On July 25, 2014

I went through a bad breakup recently. It involved a lot of crying, whining and pleading at the other end but I had made my decision. His questionable past, poor articulation skills, invisibility on variety shows and undivided attention to his owl-eyed friend compelled me to take the final step. I am sorry Kai but things had gone too far. You are just too boring.

And having no new bias take his place, I have officially lost all purpose in life. So here is an attempt at mapping stages of mental degradation while consuming K-pop having lost a bias, and hopefully, at least some of it will strike a chord. (Please don’t tell me I am the only dysfunctional one).

Somewhat, kind of, probably, sort of, fairly, based a bit on a true-ish story

SISTAR is back and sexy as ever as they performed summer track "Touch My Body" on this week"s "Yoo Hee Yeol"s Sketchbook"! In addition, Hyorin and Soyu did a hauntingly beautiful cover of Christina Aguilera"s "Hurt."

During the interview portion, Hyorin revealed that she had composed quite a lot of songs, all of which the agency listened to but turned down on the grounds that they were basically not mainstream enough as she likes to experiment with R&B and hip hop.

Soyu elaborated that because the songs were Hyorin"s personal compositions, they were made for her and her only. Understandably, this may make it a bit harder for people to approach the songs, but fans, nonetheless, surely want to hear some of her compositions on the girls" album soon!
