Fuse's 44 Most Anticipated Albums of 2013 ft. SNSD and Psy9:55 pm - 01/15/2013
Who: The nine-member (yes, NINE) K-pop girl group Girls' Generation who became fast friends with Kelly Ripa when they performed their first international single "The Boys" (released in Korean and English)
What: An American version of their I Got A Boy Korean album (released New Years Day)
What We Know: The group is in talks with Interscope Records to release an American version of their latest Korean album though a date, title, and track details are undecided. If a nine-member Korean group making it in the U.S. sounds like a stretch remember two members are from America! Yet we think most will react like David Letterman -- with nine women writhing in front of them, he looked like he could barely control himself!
Who: The artist with the most-viewed video ever on YouTube, Psy (which means a new Psy music video AND a new dance, how could we NOT be excited?!)
What: Psy's new international album, still untitled, that will feature both Korean and English tracks with possible production by Diplo and guest appearance by 2 Chainz
When: February or March
What We Know: He has global appeal now, but Psy has expressed he wants to release his new single in Korean with an accompanying dance featuring "some sports move". The K-pop veteran has said he wants a solo comeback single to prove he can have similar success as "Gangnam Style" without the help of another big name. Can he deliver a song that crosses language barriers...AGAIN?!
