Julyssa’s Music Highlights of 2011
When I sat down to pin down my highlights of this year, I was pretty sure it was going to be Asian all over the board. I surprised myself with the amount of non-Asian music I’ve heard this year. Great thanks goes out to Spotify, all of YAM’s music associates and Swedish radio – they keep in the loop of what is going on in the western parts of the world.
I don’t even want to think how the hell I managed to listen to so much music. I find it outstanding that I even had the time — I felt that I didn’t have enough of it. I am still late with some reviews! Am I super woman or do I really have time-bending powers? Lazy is more like it.
First off with the sexiest honorable mention ever:
2PM – REPUBLIC OF 2PM
Wowza was I a happy fangirl when this album came out. I am really happy with what 2PM is doing in Japan. They are not only re-releasing their Korean songs translated, but they are doing new material. Sexy material.
Too bad their first Japanese album didn’t cut it for this list, but this song, this music video, the name of this album… sexiest highlight of 2011.
