Some kind of way by An Huynh

Sharing two new videos that make me feel some kind of way. We don't deserve Janelle Monae, but here she is doing what she does best (everything).

This next video is really different from the first, but it gives me all the feels. No shame here. I love BTS and cheers to Puma for knowing how to pull on my heartstrings. 

BTS mania by An Huynh

I am so so late to the BTS fandom, but at last, here I am. These guys made a splash in the U.S. when they beat out some big names in Western pop music for the Top Social Artist award at the Billboard Music Awards this May. A Kpop group beating out people like Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, and Selena Gomez? This was huge news, and some folks couldn't handle.  

I wasn't surprised to hear about the blatant racism and hate, but it was still sad to read about. It didn't seem to bother BTS though, because a few months later they came back and KILLED IT as the first Kpop group to perform at the American Music Awards. Are you crying yet? Because I am.

Something is happening in pop music, whether we like it or not. Granted, international collaborations have been happening for a while now, but lately it's been happening on much more of a mainstream level. BTS alone has already collaborated with Wale, The Chainsmokers, and Steve Aoki. What's to come?! Whatever it is, I can't wait :D :D :D.
