Korean Pop was first noticed in the U.S. in 2012 when Psy’s “Gangnam Style” became the first video on YouTube to have a billion streams. When it was released it was something new and unfamiliar to us. Over the past decade, Korean Pop has become more well-known with many groups touring in America. After almost three years since their debut, BlackPink will finally step foot on American soil for the first time.
Although people see Twenty One Pilots as ‘mainstream’ because of their achievements, they just want to be their own band with their own sound. Their songs are for everyone and appeal to a wide range of listeners. They talk about anxiety, depression and, have created a movement towards people who need it. They hope that no matter how overplayed their music is over the radio, their fans will still sing along.
