Will Crystal Kay’s Crossover Be Successful?

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.Β 

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.Β 

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.?

  1. Yeah the song with FEM, she wasn’t need on that record. Cassie or Jhene Aiko could’ve done better. I love Crystal Kay. But I think she needs to try her hand at K-Pop. And change up her image. I don’t think the Japanese audience like her much b/c she’s starting to look too mature and older. Japanese love cute, young girls. Namie Amuro and Ayumi Hamasaki still look young and hip and their music matches as well. I’m not saying she needs surgery or anything. But she should look more cute/sexy and dye her hair honey blonde or ombre. She needs to keep up with the trends and stop wearing the same stuff she’s been wearing for years. .

  2. I have no idea who she is but she’s gorgeous..what a beautiful mixture of culture she comes from. Good luck girl!

  3. I have to agree. The one thing that always upsets me when an asian artist tries to crossover is advertising it just always seems to suck to be honest. Not only that as mentioned it’s hard to crack American audiences and I also have to agree that I’m not totally sure she’s really cracked Japanese audiences. I really think that’s sad since she’s very talented, I just hope that she does better in the market than I’ve seen other crossover artists do.
