Hey guys so today I would like to share with you some of my favorite songs that are not Kpop. I think I have shared enough of that….for now. 😛 haha
Instead I will show you some pop from other parts of the world. Like always I hope you check all of these out and share some or your thoughts. Which ones did you like and which ones you didn’t. So let’s get started:
My first pick is Jolin Tsai. She is a Taiwanese Singer who is labeled, “The Queen of Cpop(Chinese Pop).”Many love her because she is a fashion, music, and gay icon. She writes music, sings it, dances , and even does a bit of acting. 😮 I struggled with which of her songs to introduce you guys with. Ultimately I settled on this one because 1. it has some English and yes that helps 😛 2. I’m a sucker for any kind of traditional clothing whether historically accurate or just inspired. Something about it just gets me. 🙂
So without further ado:
蔡依林 Jolin Tsai – I’m Not Yours Feat. 安室奈美惠 NAMIE AMURO (華納official 高畫質HD官方完整版MV)
Next up is NYUSHA who is a Russian singer. She has an incredible achievement behind her as she holds the record for most number 1 singles in Russia right now. That’s a huge freaking deal right?. 🙂 Anyway I chose this song because I really like the Indian influence and its usage of colors.

Now this one is one I stumbled across when I was first looking to get into French Music. I had just started learning French and thought music would be a fun way to get a feel for the language and to practice my listening skills. Immediately I fell for her soothing voice. ^_^ Alizée is one of the bestselling female French singers and after checking this song you will see why. She has been in the music scene since 2000.

Sylwia Grzeszczak is an award winning Polish singer songwriter. Oh and she can play the piano btw.^^ I chose this song because I liked the attitude. Oh and that mohawk. She’s just got this strong aura and presense to her that attracts me to her.

This is the last one but probably my favorite among these. Tóc Tiên is without a doubt my favorite Vpop singer right now. ^_^ Her videos always have good production values and are energetic. This particular one has the added bonus of a pretty cool beat drop. It’s unlike anything I had heard before.

Well that’s it for now. Hope to do another one of these in the future. 🙂
