The underground K-Pop culture in America is about to get a shock to the heart and jump into the living rooms of every family with the release of boy band 2PM’s song “Go Crazy”.
Crafted especially to appeal to more American tastes than most other K-Pop songs, it features incredibly catchy and easy to follow melodies and a memorable chorus that are causing a sensation on YouTube.
The song got over a million views in just a single day, with fans pushing up the music charts.
K-Pop is a genre of music very popular in South Korea that features elements of hip hop, trance, and electronic dance music and is a huge part of the South Korean economy.
Many are calling for comparisons to The Beatles in the 1960’s and see it is the beginning of a K-Pop wave. South Korean rapper Psy’s hit “Gangnam Style” is what most think of when they think of K-Pop, when in reality many of the songs are much more serious; Gangnam Style being more of a joke on the commercial nature of the commercial aspects of South Korea.
It is unlikely the song will get any real airplay on U.S. radio stations, but internet radio will most likely push the song hard.
Listen for it on NEXTGEN FM starting Monday September 15 when the band’s album Go Crazy is to be released.
This could be the single that will finally push K-pop into the mainstream in the U.S.
