Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are gaining prominence in the music industry and have growing audiences within multiple genres. Major mainstream recognition for the Asian American and Pacific Islander community came with the introduction of Far East Movement into popular culture. Now Asian American artists are topping the charts.
â€œEveryone probably thinks Bruno Mars came out of nowhere,â€ said Chadwick Vargas, host of Titan Radioâ€™s â€œAsian Persuasion Show.â€ â€œNot so, heâ€™s been writing songs for a lot of artists we love today. Itâ€™s no surprise heâ€™s on top of the iTunes charts with Far East Movement.â€
Vargassâ€™ playlist includes popular artists like the Far East Movement and Bruno Mars, as well as emerging artists from the Asian American and Pacific Islander community.
