SPICA, one of South Korea’s hottest girl groups, is set to make waves in the US. The group will make their US performance debut at KCON – America’s largest annual K-pop concert – on August 10th at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena.

To kick off their US invasion, SPICA will partner with Billboard Magazine to debut the album’s lead single and music video, “I Did It,” on Thursday, August 7th. The single (releasing on ASA Music LLC), is a first completely English language song from the girls, is produced by Oliver ‘Oligee’ Goldstein, Cory Enemy, and Daniel Merlot who have credits with Carly Rae Jepsen, Shakira, Ellie Goulding, Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez.
“We’re so excited to release our first song and video in the US. Cory, Oli and Daniel delivered an awesome track which we had to release as our debut single. We’re also very proud of our new English album. We hope everyone loves it,” exclaims Jiwon from SPICA.
SPICA is not your average girl group. First off, all five members (Boa, Bohyung, Juhyun, Narae, Jiwon) have all found considerable success on their own and have joined forces to combine their very talented vocals and artistry. Boa has been a vocal trainer for five-time Golden Disk Award winning group INFINITE and SBS MTV Best Of The Best award winning group KARA. Bohyung is the top vocalist and winner of Korean music television channel MNet’s singing competition “100 Seconds Battle”. Juhyun is an accomplished model that starred in music videos for Queen of K-Pop Lee Hyori and rising star Heo Young Saeng. Narae was a top ten finalist on talent competition Superstar K. And Jiwon was featured on the MTV reality show “Diary Of Five Girls” and in the video for Baechigi’s number one hit “Shower of Tears.”
Since their debut in 2012, SPICA has released four singles, two mini albums and one repackaged album to widespread acclaim. Lee Hyori has been a long time mentor to SPICA and has had a hand in producing two singles and two videos for the group.
