Looks like a previous article was right about 2NE1, “Japanese boys are sure to fall in love with their fusion of music and fashion.” First up,Teru from GLAY who just a while ago tweeted:
“2NE1, they’re cool. “
“Music Videos are very high quality. Their individual personalities are perfectly balanced.”
“They’re very cool, and cute as well~ They seem popular with the girls.~”
This is great exposure for 2NE1. For those of you who don’t know, Glay is a top-selling band in Japan. “Glay (グレイ Gurei?) (stylized as GLAY) is a rock/pop band from Hakodate, Hokkaidō, Japan formed by guitarist Takuro and vocalist Teru during high school in 1988. Glayprimarily composes songs in the rock and pop genres, but they have also composed songs using elements of different styles such as reggae and gospel. As of August 2010, Glay has sold about 37.5 million in Japan, placed as the 7th best selling artist of all time in that country, according to a ranking presented on TV show “Music Station”, with data from the Oricon charts.” For 2NE1 to be getting recognition by such popular and respected artists bodes well for them as March approaches.
Seems like 2NE1 already has the beginnings of a great following in Japan. March can’t come fast enough.
