It’s a cliché to say that when Babymetal debuted in 2008, they were destined to become the pop phenomenon that would take them to the top of the Japanese pop charts.
But it’s actually a good thing.
When BabyMetal first broke through on the global stage, it seemed they’d only been around for about a decade.
In reality, Babymetal have been around since 2008, when they debuted with their debut EP, Karate Kid.
It’s not a coincidence that their first release came on the same year they formed.
While it’s hard to say for certain whether the band were influenced by the Japanese martial arts style, it seems pretty clear that they were influenced.
The first track, “The Second Stage”, is an incredibly melodic track that could easily be mistaken for a karate style dance.
“The Second” is a perfect example of how “Karate Kid” has a certain air of mystery.
It starts out with an upbeat, pop-rock beat, before quickly dropping into an atmospheric lullaby-like beat that slowly picks up intensity.
The lyrics on the song are incredibly concise, but the melodies, and even the drums, are very melodic.
It could be a sign that Babymetal are definitely inspired by karate.
When Babymetal first debuted in Japan, they received mixed reviews.
Many people thought they were too similar to other Japanese pop acts, like The Beatles.
Some people even said they sounded too similar.
But as Babymetal grew, the criticism became less and less.
It was only when they broke into the international pop scene that they received widespread critical acclaim.
“Kareem”, the song that introduced them to fans in the States, was one of their biggest hits, selling over 25 million copies.
Despite the negative reaction, BabyMetal never stopped growing and in the years since, they’ve become one of the biggest bands in the world.
Even though they’re just a few years removed from their debut album, the music they’ve created has the potential to be the next big thing in Japanese pop.
In fact, Babyrock, the new single they released this week, could very well be their next big hit.
As Babymetal’s fan base grows, it’s become apparent that they’re really good at what they do.
The members of Babymetal were chosen from a list of over 600 people who auditioned for a part in the Japanese video game series, Kamen Rider.
The group had to go through an intense and rigorous audition process, which included a two-hour physical and an hour in-person interview with a director.
During the process, they learned a lot about themselves and how to perform well in the video game.
After the audition, the band was invited to a live audition.
While the music was not the strongest, the members performed exceptionally well, and the video was highly praised.
Now that the video has been released online, it looks like Babymetal might be going the next step in the process of becoming the biggest pop act of all time.
Babymetal have recently signed to Japan’s K-Pop agency, MOB Entertainment.
While Babymetal will not be performing live on their own, the Japanese label will be allowing Babymetal to perform on their shows overseas.
It seems like BabyMetal are on the right track for the future, and with a little luck and a little love, they could be one of many Japanese pop stars to follow their lead.
