The popular group WESTLIFE recently visited their fans right here in Korea, and POPS & SOUL is sad to say that group member Nicky was out sick. Unfortunately he didn't make it to the interview. But he's in Korea and we hear he's going to be just fine. Why don't we go meet them right now?
“Hi, we're WESTLIFE. I'm Kian, I'm Mark, I'm Bryan, and I'm Shane!”
WESTLIFE's debut album set a new record last year, producing 5 number 1 hits in a row. We wanted to know what their purpose was for coming to Korea. Let's see what they had to say.
“Basically the main reason why we came to Korea this time was to promote our new album, which is called “Coast to Coast”. Another reason would be sort of to thank the fans for supporting us on our last album, to give them some performances and interviews to watch. But mainly to promote the new album “Coast to Coast” and being in Korea is absolutely amazing. They're giving us such a great welcome just basically very, very nice people and we feel very comfortable here.”
They tell us that they were a bit apprehensive about their new album because their debut album was such a huge success. They mentioned that they worked extra hard on this album. Let's find out the details from them.
“OK, the second album compared to the first one, I think, we're matured with this album. I think the songs in general are generally better songs. You know, vocally wise, I think, you know, we've performed a lot better on this album. Production wise, I feel that the production is a lot better on this album. Plus we've brought in some more mid tempo and up tempo songs for this album.”
WESTLIFE sends their congratulations to President Kim Daejung on winning the Nobel Peace prize. WESTLIFE will be performing their new song at the awards ceremony. So all of you WESTLIFE fans, be sure to watch it. Let's wish WESTLIFE good luck over the future.
Speaking of WESTLIFE, the next world pop video I'm about to show you guys is the newest video from their latest album “Coast to Coast”. It's titled “My Love” and was actually the number one hit single on the UK chart last month. WESTLIFE has produced five number one singles on their debut album, and was noticed for being managed by former BOYZONE member Ronan Keating. Are you guys ready? Here's WESTLIFE with “My Love”.
