My main 3 favorite types of music are
I love pop groups...lol. korea has THE best pop groups EVER. At least right now, nobody can touch them. I mean, they have at least 3 or 4 WEEKLY tv shows dedicated to music performances. America has NONE.
Hip hop and r&b I kind of only really got into when I started DJing for my high school about 7 or 8 years ago. But now I like it a lot. I think of r&b and those rare r&b/rap groups as Pop groups because lets face it, in america this type of music IS pop.
As for dance music, I've always been a fiend as far as I can remember. Maybe it started with the group Aqua, but later I started like house and trance and all that good stuff. I'm more of a fan of the radio side of dance, like radio edits and vocal dance.
I like all kinds of music though. I used to be really into rock back in like 2000-2002 when rock was ACE. Lately I have not really heard anything good.
Some of my favorte rock bands are like The Stills, Funeral For A Friend, Silverchair, A Day To Remember..
I used to really follow urban/reggae japanese music as well as jpop. The sites and blogs I used to go to that would update often and frequently about this type of music are now gone though, so for maybe about 3 years or so I have not been able to find any new music related to this genre
It is easy for me to follow kpop because there are many blogs especially allkpop.com that update LIKE CRAZY. Not to mention again the very frequent tv performances they do.
With dance music, for the past year or so I have been mainly hearing about stuff from online radio. I listen to Energy 98 like every day. Hip hop/R&B I listen to HOT108.
ugh not to ramble on and on but I guess here is a short list of some of my favorite artists:
BoA (also i have listened to her since Amazing Kiss her debut japanese single. she is international)
i cant really think of anyone else right now lmfao
Novaspace (original singer only
RYO the SKYWALKER
BoA (she fits in everywhere lol)
god there is so much. I think I just need to stop lmao
