South Korea’s top pop star BoA has unveiled a plan to make a concert tour of the United States in June.
In a recent interview with MTV Iggy in the U.S., BoA has selected Miami as her favorite destination for concerts.
BoA was quoted as saying, “I like New York but I really want to go to Miami. Miami looked nice in the movie, like a paradise.”
In mid-March, BoA released her first U.S. album amid high expectations that she will be able to reenact her success story in Japan in the world’s largest album market.
The album contains 11 songs including flagship song “I Did It For Love,” and dance tracks “Energetic,” “Eat You Up,” and “Look Who’s Talking.” The flagship song was written by Sean Garrett, the famous American producer, and its video was directed by Joseph Kahn, who has made promos for Britney Spears, Chris Brown and Eminem and won the Best Video of the Year and Best Direction in the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards.
BoA’s album ranked 127th in the Billboard 200 Album Charts announced on March 26. It was the first time that a Korean singer had entered the Billboard chart.
