Bubbling Under: Wonder Girls Ride K-Pop Wave to U.S. Radio

By Billboard Staff: Each Friday, Billboard presents “Bubbling Under,” a weekly look at new and noteworthy acts making their way toward Billboard chart success. Up this week: Wonder Girls, Priyanka Chopra, Tame Impala and August Rain.

PSY’s K-Pop breakthrough on U.S. top 40 radio with “Gangnam Style” is perhaps helping open doors for fellow Korean act Wonder Girls. The group is percolating under the Nielsen BDS-based Pop Songs tally with the English-language single “Like Money,” featuring Akon (JYP). The song could be the female quintet’s first airplay chart hit in the U.S., thanks to early support from WXRK New York, WKSE Buffalo, N.Y., and WKSZ Green Bay, Wis.
