BoA - Korean Pop Comes to America

At just 22 years old, BoA is one of Asia's biggest music stars, has sold over 20 million albums world wide and is just now making her emergence into the United States with her self titled English language debut BoA, which debuted in the Billboard 200, number 5 on the Billboard Dance Charts and was the 11th most sold album on the internet. The record is a reputable who's who in the pop music world with her debut single “I Did it For Love” produced by Sean Garrett (Usher, Ciara, Beyonce, Whitney Houston) and the video being directed by Joseph Kahn (Eminem's “Without Me”, Britney Spears “Toxic). Additionally, Britney Spears leant her creative hand to the album co writer and producing the track “Look Who's Talking” - quite a collaboration between the queens of the American and Asian pop scenes.

BoA's tightly woven pop music and over the top dance videos put her in a prime position to be the next American princess of pop - as the embodiment of mainstream music 2.0. Check out the video for “I Did it For Love,” her current single from the album, below...its truly like watching a young Britney Spears or Janet Jackson emerging.
