SNSD Writes History with “The Boys” Album Release in France
SNSD will release their “The Boys” album in France on February 13, making them the first K-Pop artist to officially distribute an album in the European market. According to SM Entertainment, SNSD will release “The Boys” through Polydor, the French music label under Universal Music Group.
This will be in the same form as the special album version of “The Boys” released in the U.S. But it’s regarded as a groundbreaking event in Korean music history as no other Korean artist has ever been able to publish their album through an official European music label. Old school band “Koreana” did promote and release a single titled, “Arirang Singers,” in the 70s through the same label, Polydor, but it was just a single album with small scale distribution.
“SNSD has already proven their marketability through their concert in France last year. Through their album release in France, SNSD will truly be able to run worldwide promotions,” SME said in a statement.
I think it's because they are not really big worldwide, they don't sell that much in the US and it's a bit hard to search for Korean sales.jordi_89 wrote:Why doesn't some user create a thread for SNSD, 2NE1 and/or other Eastern artists on the Chart Analysis thread? It would be interesting to check their chart stats too! (and if the moderators think they're not "popular" enough, we could make a "Korean Artists Chart Analysis" thread, and another one for "Japanese")
I would like to have a thread like that too. Not sure if I'd contribute any statistics, but it would be useful to have if someone doesn't mind updating it.musiclover2174 wrote:Yeah.
