Jill Scott raves about Big Bang song
U.S. R&B songstress Jill Scott has professed to being a K-pop fan.
On Friday, Scott tweeted, “Feeling Big Bang’s Bad Boy right now. Dope,” referring to the boy band’s single.
In case her followers didn’t get the note, later in the same day Scott again tweeted, “Check out Big Bang - our brand of fresh in Korea.”
In the last year, the five-member boy band has been gaining quite a following in the U.S.
In an article listing the biggest concerts of the year compiled by The New York Times last month, 2NE1 and Big Bang were mentioned alongside Jay-Z, The Rolling Stones and Radiohead.
Along with the press coverage, the group’s social network seems to be expanding too.
Last week, Lady Gaga’s stylist and fashion designer Nicola Formichetti mentioned on Twitter that Big Bang’s leader G-Dragon had written a song for him to play at his fashion show. “Mugler men’s fashion show tomorrow!! Music by G-DRAGON,” tweeted the Italian-Japanese stylist on Wednesday.
