Move over Psy. It's time for the next K-Pop wave on these shores. Nine member girl group Girls' Generation have released a new single "I Got a Boy" and an epic accompanying music video to strong viral success. The song is pure pop but sounds like at least three different songs all mashed into one. It is like a Girls' Generation medley of hits. The music video is a mad explosion of color.
Girls' Generation have been stars at home in South Korea since their debut album hit #1 back in 2007. The new album, also titled I Got a Boy, is currently ruling the World Album chart in Billboard while the song is topping the K-Pop chart. Here in the US, the album is #2 on the Heatseekers album chart and the music video is #2 on the YouTube chart just behind "Gangnam Style." The "I Got a Boy" music video has racked up nearly 30 million views since the first of the year. Check it out below and get ready for a Girls' Generation invasion.
