Girls’ Generation has continued to prove it’s popularity in Japan, this time beating the likes of Coldplay and Lady Gaga.
This year at the 2012 MTV VMAJ‘s, Girls’ Generation managed to take home the prestigious Album of the Year award. They faced stiff competition in the form of international artists Coldplay and Lady Gaga, Domestic Jazz star Juju and fellow hallyu pop stars in KARA. Their first Japanese album, which shares the same name as the group, has been widely successful, even achieving Million certifiction by the Japanese RIAJ for having over 1,000,000 albums shipped.
For Girls’ Generation, this album was an ambitious project that saw them adapt established hits into Japanese, coinciding with a widely successful Japanese Arena Tour. Diligent work from translators and lyricists help adapt the Korean songs for a new market, while providing a new sound to the group in the form of brand new tracks, with the end result being incredibly successful. Not to be outdone were the members, who took on the incredibly difficult task of learning to sing in a new language, re-shooting a few music videos and some new ones, all the while promoting in Japan, Korea and the United States. It’s no wonder that the Girls’ Generation Japanese album has received a lot of attention from SONEs around the world.
The track list for Girl’s Generation’s First Japanese album:
2. Genie (JP)
4. Run Devil Run (JP)
5. Bad Girl
6. Beautiful Stranger
7. I’m in Love with the Hero
8. Let it Rain
9. Gee (JP)
10. The Great Escape
11. Hoot (JP)
12. Born to be a Lady
Of course, the girls’ are no strangers to winning awards at the MTV VMAJ’s having taken home Best Group Video and Best Karaokee! awards last year. According to sources on Twitter, the VMAJ’s did not have an award presentation for Album of the Year on broadcast, likely attributed to the fact that all of the nominees were not in attendance.
A Big Congratulations to Girls’ Generation for their success in capturing the MTV VMAJ’s Album of the Year!
