Tons of American artists that speak two languages do it,
It actually wouldn't be that weird at all.
I own a few albums that have it,
Ex. Shakira - Laundry Service
Nelly Furtado - Loose

I wouldnt go so far as to say its stupid, weird, and makes no sense XD

However if she's releasing it as a single---then it should be english.
But if its just going to be a CD track its totally normal.
I'm willing to bet it'll be translated anyway.



Spanish is by far more common both as a spoken language and as a force in the music industry in the U.S.
We Americans are exposed to it far more often and are thus more open to things like that.

Korean on the other hand... I hate to sound jaded or blunt, but quite a decent percentage of Americans still think all Asians speak some strange "ching-chong" language. And while that's obviously a falsehood, the fact still remains that there's quite a decent chance that leaving a Korean-language track on an American English album will leave a bad impression in people's minds. This debut is a huge deal for BoA, for SM, and future Asian performers, I doubt she or her management are willing to leave anything to chance, no matter how small.

In addition, lyrically I feel that Girls on Top's message just about sums up everything BoA is trying to portray of herself here in the states. Why would take a song whose message is potentially central to her image and then leave it in a language most buyers don't understand? It seems stupid.

and I love it! =p it's so lovely/awesome XD so I just had to
check on bjj for updates =p I shouldn't even be on here
right now >> I have a lot of assignments to finish but w/e XD

I was never really interested in Beethoven Virus XD guess
I'm going to start watching it now ><

3 cellphones? haha didn't surprise me XD

and a tall male singer eh? I completely understand her ><
I am around her height and I don't think I can ever stop
thinking about it ><

Kinda was hoping that she was closer to more celebrities but oh well xD
Atleast there's Jae and Heechul <3

Moving on, really looking forward to Obsessed and I did it for love. I wonder if
there'll be a PV/MV for both songs or only one :D.

I'm glad that her US debut album will be dropped before her BEST&USA but still, I think
maybe she should promote over in the US more first before dropping the album. :).
Oh well, good luck to BoA!
I'll be supporting her the whole way through.
Already have her BEST&USA pre-ordered, and her US album debut pinpointed on my calender xD

I really can't wait for this album. It looks so good and has been dangled in front of us for so long that I don't know if I could stand it anymore if it weren't for Eien!
