Why can't Asian artists make it big in America?
Posted 1/23/08 , edited 7/14/08
Just a question thats been on my mind for a while...
I live in america and ive never see any asian artists debut in america...
Why is that so? are we not as popular? or people just arent interested..?


EDIT: also even asian artists who DO sing in english doesnt get much recognition.

I know right?
As far as i know, there are Asian actors and actresses, but not Artists.

Min debut in America, she's from korea, under Lil' John, but she's not that
popular yet. She's a great dancer though!

It's because most americans like being able to have some grasp on what is being said in a song
And I like Japanese music but I can't stand the actual lyrics

You mean Asians singing English? or Asians singing their native language?

I suppose they don't stand out in to their target audiences. One day, though.

Oh, didn't Ne-Yo and Hikaru Utada collab in a song? That's one step, eh? And technically Ne-Yo's part Chinese so does he count?

I think they're racists, that's why Asian artists don't make it big there. I'm a Filipino, and I know a lot of bands and artists in the Philippines, and I think that they're really good. I also think that they're better than some of the American artists.

But Jasmine Trias is a different situation, she just joined the American Idol and luckily, she was on 3rd place. But she's still not that popular with the Americans.

I also listen to Korean and Japanese music too, and they're not bad either. Eventhough I can't understand it.

I think that only a few Asian artists will only make it big in America. Hell, they think they're superior. So there's nothing we can do about it. It's good though, that the Asians appreciate each other's music.

Hopefully, someday, Asians can make it big in America.

Its because they dont think they're marketable. Its the same reason you never see any asian lead roles in hollywood unless its about martial arts. Ya digg?

That's the conclusion everyone wants to come to because it's an easy way to sum it up.

It's really not that at all.

Americans really tend to shy away from what's 'different.'

Until some really big breakout star hits the U.S.A, or an A-lister points out the talent of an Asian individual, there won't be any Asians in the music industry.
