1985 Wham! became the first-ever Western pop act to have an album released in China. When the musical duo formed by George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley released the album Make It Big, that was merely the opener. Western music has since invaded the expansive country.
In honor of this musical history-making moment, here are some of the more recent pop songs to hit the charts in China.
“Party in the U.S.A” – MileyCyrus
“We are the People” – Empireof the Sun
“She Wolf” – Shekira
“Obsessed” – MariahCarey
“Waking up in Vegas” – Katy Perry
And the music goes on beating to the rhythm of the changing times...
