Is this legitimately good boy band going to bring K-pop to America?
This month, a band called INFINITE made history for K-pop — it scored a hit, and it did it while singing in Korean on the strength of their song and amazing dancing.
The boy band became the first Korean musicians to top the Billboard Twitter Emerging Artists chart, thanks to its catchy single, “Last Romeo.” In addition to snagging the No. 1 spot, the single also ranked 33rd on the Billboard Twitter Top Tracks. Both of these rankings signal a huge shift in American audiences — a willingness to finally acknowledge that K-pop is the amazing genre our country needs to diversify its tastes.
