Never heard of K-Pop? Well, here’s your introduction. Out of all the Korean pop music groups out there right now, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Girls Generation[/lastfm] has been getting a ton of attention. They’re like the Asian [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Spice Girls[/lastfm] except minus the platform shoes, add a few more ladies, and put a modern twist on it. More [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Pussycat Dolls[/lastfm]. Just this week, they made their U.S. television debut on a pretty big show. If you’ve never heard of GG before, I’m sure you’ve at least heard of the Late Show with David Letterman.
I think they about gave Regis and Bill Murray heart attacks while they watched the performance. If you’re a hot blooded straight male, you’re welcome. And if you’re not? The girls are still badass. FIERCE.
Did you count ’em? NINE. Yes, nine ladies. Pretty impressive huh? That’s pretty normal for Asian pop bands, though. They’ve released three Korean albums and one in Japanese. They just had an article on Billboard.com and millions have watched their videos on YouTube. Still waiting on an English album but their latest single “Boys” is one that you’ll understand fully. Unless you flunked English in high school.
When was the last time you saw a video like THAT. Epic. Over the top. And the fashion? To die for. What can you not love about [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Girls Generation[/lastfm]? They were first brought to my attention by YOU! I’ve had a lot of calls and tweets requesting them on AMP. Do you think we should play their song?
Here’s a special bonus… Guess who got on the remix? Oh yes. None other than Snoopaloop! (That’s [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Snoop Dogg[/lastfm] if you never saw the movie Old School.) xoxo – S
