Following the success of Girls’ Generation back in 2013 with the SM entertainment’s girl group winning the ‘Video of the Year’ YouTube award, K-pop continues to stand out within the international music industry which is evidently shown in the recent 2015 YouTube Music Awards. However, this time round it’s YG entertainment’s turn to bag some awards with Big Bang and 2ne1 collectively being award winners amongst popular worldwide mainstream artists such as Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj and much more revealed in the YouTube clip below!
In the YouTube video, K-pop is highlighted through the feature of Big Bang showing the duo G-Dragon and Taeyang’s collaboration in the second half of 2014 with their single – Good Boy and 2ne1 with a snippet of their title track from their Crush album – Come Back Home. Both groups were stated to be ‘artists to watch’.
This year is set to be an exciting time for YG stans, with the highly anticipated comeback of Big Bang in April and CL preparing for her American solo debut which is set for the early half of 2015. Not to forget the long awaited debut of YG rookie boy group iKon and Winner’s comeback!
