American magazine 'Teen Vogue' recently held an interview with singer/song writer Camila Cabello, where she opened up about minority music breaking through into the mainstream industry. During this topic, the singer also gave a shoutout to K-Pop!
When asked about factors which helped music from other cultures gain more recognition in American in recent years, Camila Cabello said, "...the good thing about social media and the internet is that I feel like it makes the world smaller and it just kind of breaks down barriers between languages, between people, between cultures... I feel like with everything that's gone on this year and also with groups like K-Pop groups performing on American award shows and making their way into the mainstream American industry... there's a lot of just breaking barriers."
K-Pop groups performing on American award shows, does that ring a bell? The interviewer then asked Cabello if she was a fan of BTS, and Cabello answered, "Yeah, it's so cool. I think they're super talented and cool. I saw them perform at the American Music Awards, which was their debut on American television, and I know everybody was super, super excited. A lot of my fans are their fans, too. They also mentioned "Havana" in this one interview! It was one of my favorite performances from the show. They put a lot of work into their choreography and into their performance. And you can tell that they really work hard, and I respect that a lot."
