10. Wonder Girls
Reps: Seoul, South Korea
While they don’t share the same American chart presence as the other names on this list, Wonder Girls certainly have the buzz and high profile backers. Akon co-signed the bubbly girl clique on their well-received cut “Like Money.” Teen Nick featured the Wonder Girls in their own television movie earlier this year. And gossip maven Perez Hilton has championed the Korean act. Will their American album debut reach the heights of their overseas takeover? Well, having a roster of producers that includes J.R. Rotem, the aforementioned Akon, songwriters Wynter Gordon and Claude Kelly is a nice start.
