Shout out to Black In Korea blog for introducing me to this wonderful, ground-breaking duo. CocoAvenue is the world's first all-Black K-Pop group and I have to say...I'm amazed.
I admire when a group is ballsy, and clearly having fun (think Rich White Ladies). Like RaNia, CocoAvenue has reawakened some of my interest in K-Pop.
CocoAvenue, however, is strictly indie at this point, and need help funding their first EP. I really want to see these ladies succeed; I don't want them to simply make history and then disappear without any tangible and lasting success. Let that be a resolution for 2016: no more strictly nominal shit. I mean, think about the impact of an all-Black K-Pop group. Think about what it means for the next generation of Black fans. Think about the Black fans not only here in the US, but Canada, Europe, Africa, and South America. World tour, anyone?
