So I'm wondering: when an all-girl group has NINE members, can you even still call them a group? Girls' Generation features the vocal and dance talents of nine different real, live human members, so I think it's about time we start calling them a troupe. Or a team. Or better yet: "The Brady Bunch: Korean Edition."
Girls’ Generation recently performed their hit song "The Boys" to a sold-out crowd in Madison Square Garden, and today they're releasing a "maxi single" consisting of eight tracks featuring remixes by Clinton Sparks, Disco Fries, Teddy Riley and David Anthony, along with special guests Snoop Dogg and Lil Playy. (Side note, Snoop Dogg and a nine-girl supergroup just makes so much sense).
If this is your first time hearing about Girls' Generation (BRB, judging you), here's the 411: The members of the group sing in both Korean and English, and their 2009 track "Gee" is the longest-running No. 1 song on the Korean Broadcasting System's charts. Recently the troupe took home Mnet Asian Music Awards for Artist of the Year and Best Female Group and have more than 250 million cumulative views on YouTube. So basically what all that really means is that Girls' Generation is the Lady Gaga meets Justin Bieber of Korea and Japan -- no big deal!!!!!!
