It was recently revealed that Crystal Kay will be making an appearance on Far East Movement‘s upcoming fourth studio album ‘Dirty Bass.’ The Japanese r&b and urban pop star is reportedly working on an english album for international release and hoping this collaboration will be a breakthrough. Crystal is talented, that I’ll give her, but let’s be real we all know that the only way an artist can make it in the U.S market is if their promo team eats, sleeps and breathes their music.
It’s a tough audience to crack, and now that I’m thinking about it, has Crystal Kay even cracked Japanese audiences completely? Her success is often described as ‘moderate,’ a word used for people still on the rise but haven’t exactly risen.
I’m not bashing the singer’s career but I haven’t really been impressed by the music she’s put out. One or two songs since I’ve discovered her, but still, I haven’t cheered to every single thing. To be honest, her songs of late are sounding much better than her previous releases. I wonder if that has anything to do with the change of label? Go figure.
Anyways, I wish Crystal all the best and really do hope her producers make good music that will be well-received, so that she’ll finally gain the recognition she’s worked so hard for. Good luck girl!
What do you think, can Crystal make it in the U.S.?
