“A pop band from Asia has raced past Kelly Clarkson, Rihanna and David Guetta to the top of the U.S. music charts. And no, it’s not Girls’ Generation,” stated a Wall Street Journal article on February 17, 2012. Blush, the band referenced above flew right by the aforementioned artists in addition to the ever so popular Sweedish House Mafia and forever favorite Gloria Estefan. How did this go by unnoticed (fine not unnoticed but certainly not as highly publicized as some other Asian groups)? Did Blush come out the gate and magically happen to hit the number one spot? Nope. Their single “Dance On” did a backwards creep up to the top. 3-2-1 all in consecutive weeks.
Who are they? Blush is a female group made of five ladies from Philippines, Japan, Korea, China and India. They were formed in 2010 on the reality show Project Lotus. Yoon Do Hyun of YB (Korean rock legend) was among the judges. For those who happened to catch So You Think You Can Dance on July 21, 2011, Blush was the group performing. No this was;t their only performance, but it was one of the more noteworthy ones, given that 9.5 million viewers tuned in.
And there it is in black and white. What does this mean for the traditional kpop groups out there today? Looks like there are some hybrids gunning for American fans. Time to get your game face on.Tags : As One, BOA, China, Dia, Eric, Fans, girls generation, India, Japan, Korean, past, Philippines, SNSD surgery to look asian before and after asian in yellow tracksuit asian wave 2012 contestants new asian dramas 2013 asian man yellow tracksuit asian wave 2012 contestant list asian 3gp 4shared asian thunder thighs asian drama crazy welcome to my life ep asian dramas about pregnancy
