Asian music is invading America reports People Magazine as Korean Artists Se7en, Boa, The Wonder Girls, and Japanese pop star Utada Hikaru make their break into our airwaves. Below is the People’s half page spread on each of the artists, comparing them to the likes of Britney Spears (Boa) and Justin Timberlake (Se7en). I don’t think I can recall any Asian pop artists who have made their breaks in American music, so I’m really excited to hear these talents invade KIIS FM or whatever mainstream music station you listen to.
