(Article) 7 Most Surprising Overseas Collaborations in K-Pop!

Earlier this week, it was reported that PSY would be flying to L.A to meet with Justin Bieber and his representative Scooter Braun. Not much details have been revealed regarding their potential collaboration yet, but fans around the world are closely following the situation to see what the two artists are planning for, as this is perhaps one of the most unexpected collaborations ever in K-Pop history.

The whole PSY-Bieber collaboration rumors got us thinking about other duets and features between K-Pop and Western artists in the past. K-Pop is still a novelty in a lot of Western countries but it looks like more and more musicians are willing to work with K-Pop artists.

Here’s a list of 7 best overseas collaborations in K-Pop!

Awal minggu ini, telah dilaporkan bahwa PSY akan terbang ke L.A untuk bertemu dengan Justin Bieber dan wakilnya Scooter Braun. Tak banyak rincian yang diungkapkan mengenai kemungkinan kolaborasi mereka, namun fans di seluruh dunia secara dekat mengikuti situasi untuk melihat apa yang kedua artis tersebut rencanakan, karena ini mungkin salah satu kolaborasi yang paling tak terduga dalam sejarah K-Pop.

Seluruh rumor kolaborasi PSY-Bieber membuat sumber mencari duet-duet lainnya antara artis-artis K-Pop dan Barat di masa lalu. K-Pop masih hal yang baru di banyak negara Barat namun tampaknya lebih banyak dan banyak lagi musisi yang bersedia untuk bekerja sama dengan artis-artis K-Pop.

Inilah daftar 7 kolaborasi terbaik antara K-Pop dengan musisi/artis luar negeri!

“Heartbreaker” – G-Dragon feat. Flo Rida

Shortly after the release of G-Dragon’s solo debut track, “Heartbreaker,” G-Dragon was accused of plagiarizing Flo Rida’s “Right Round.” Although EMI, the distributor of “Right Round,” officially said there were no similarities between the songs, public opinion started to grow against G-Dragon. Later, YG Entertainment personally contacted Flo Rida and released a new version of “Heartbreaker” featuring Flo Rida himself.

Tak lama setelah perilisan lagu debut solo G-Dragon, “Heartbreaker,” G-Dragon dituduh memplagiat lagu Flo Rida “Right Round.” Meskipun EMI, distributor “Right Round,” secara resmi mengatakan tak ada kesamaan antara kedua lagu tersebut, opini publik mulai tumbuh terhadap G-Dragon. Kemudian, YG Entertainment secara pribadi menghubungi Flo Rida dan merilis versi baru dari “Heartbreaker” yang juga menampilkan Flo Rida sendiri.

“Nothing on You” – Jay Park feat. B.o.B

In 2010, shortly after Jay Park was almost forced to leave Korea for his past comments on his online blog, the ex-2PM member opened his own YouTube channel and shared a cover of B.o.B’s “Nothin’ on You.” It was the first time fans were able to see Jay Park in months, and the video racked up millions of views. B.o.B got increased attention from Jay Park’s video, as it quickly went viral, and later the two announced they would be releasing a duet single featuring B.o.B’s rapping.

Di tahun 2010, tak lama setelah Jay Park hampir dipaksa untuk meninggalkan Korea karena komentarnya di blog online-nya, mantan member 2PM ini membuka channel YouTube pribadi dan berbagi video dirinya meng-cover lagu B.o.B “Nothin’ on You.” Itu pertama kalinya fans bisa melihat Jay Park setelah berbulan-bulan, dan video tersebut berhasil mendapatkan jutaan views. B.o.B tertarik pada video Jay Park, karena menyebar luas dengan cepat, dan kemudian keduanya mengumumkan bahwa mereka akan merilis single duet yang menampilkan rap B.o.B.

“Ayyy Girl” – JYJ feat. Kanye West

Perhaps the most surprising combination on this list, JYJ joined hands with Kanye West for their first English album, “The Beginning.” Although the album itself sold in high volumes, as any JYJ album does, the song itself didn’t receive positive reviews as most saw the combination as unfit.  However, this song put JYJ on Billboard magazine’s November, 2010 issue, which led to the highest daily traffic record for the magazine’s website.

Mungkin inilah kolaborasi paling mengejutkan dalam daftar ini, JYJ bekerja sama dengan Kanye West untuk album berbahasa Inggris mereka, “The Beginning.” Meskipun album sendiri laris terjual, seperti album JYJ lainnya, lagu ini sendiri tak mendapat ulasan yang positif karena banyak yang melihat kolaborasi antara JYJ dan Kanye West ini tak cocok. Namun, lagu ini menempatkan JYJ pada majalah Billboard edisi November 2010, yang menuntun pada meningkatknya jumlah pengunjung situs majalah tersebut.

“The Boys” – Girls’ Generation feat. Snoop Dogg

Snoop Dogg featured on the Girls’ Generation’s remix version of “The Boys,” which was included the album’s U.S. edition. It was the first U.S. debut album for the Girls’ Generation, but no one really expected Snoop Dogg to be a part of it. Although Snoop’s rap and the overall song matches quite well, we’re not sure if it was the right combination.

Snoop Dogg tampil di lagu SNSD “The Boys” versi remix, yang dimasukkan dalam album edisi Amerika Serikat. Album ini adalah album debut U.S. pertama untuk SNSD, namun tak ada yang menyangka Snoop Dogg akan berpartisipasi di dalamnya. Meskipun rap Snoop Dogg dan keseluruhan lagu cocok dengan baik, tak yakin apakah ini kombinasi yang pas.

“Where Is the Love?” – Will.I.AM and Apl.de.ap feat. 2NE1’s CL

Black Eyed Peas made a guest appearance at the 2011 MAMA Awards and gave a surprising joint performance of “Where Is the Love?” featuring 2NE1’s CL. It was one of the most talked-about live stages in K-Pop history, as it gave a glimpse into what the Will.I.Am-2NE1 collaboration would sound like. Will.I.Am has visited Korea multiple times already and it has been reported they’ve produced several tracks already. The whole world is waiting for the 2NE1-Will.I.Am album to drop ASAP.

Black Eyed Peas tampil sebagai tamu di MAMA Awards 2010 dan memberi penampilan kolaborasi kejutan “Where Is the Love?” bersama CL 2NE1. Ini adalah salah satu panggung live yang paling banyak dibicarakan di sejarah K-Pop, karena memberi intipan ke dalam seperti apakah suara kolaborasi antara Will.I.Am dan 2NE1. Will.I.Am telah sering mengunjungi Korea dan telah dilaporkan bahwa mereka telah memproduksi beberapa lagu. Seluruh dunia menanti album 2NE1-Will.I.Am rilis sesegera mungkin.

“Dancing on My Own” – Pixie Lott feat. GD & T.O.P

Last March, Big Bang’s G-Dragon and T.O.P featured on British-songwriter Pixie Lott’s track, “Dancing on My Own.” The song was part of the Japanese edition of her album, “Young Foolish Happy.” YG Entertainment said of the collaboration, “It was more than a featuring, it was almost like a duet. Pixie Lott’s agency and YG Entertainment have been acquaintances.
