Boa Kwon (Korean: 권보아, Kwon Boa, born November 5, 1986[1]), commonly stylized and known by her stage name BoA, which is a backronym for Beat of Angel,[2] is a Korean singer, active in South Korea, Japan, and the United States. Born and raised in Gyeonggi-do, South Korea, BoA was discovered by SM Entertainment talent agents when she accompanied her older brother to a talent search. In 2000, after two years of training, she released ID; Peace B, her debut Korean album, under SM Entertainment. Two years later, she released her debut Japanese album, Listen to My Heart, under the Avex label. On October 14, 2008, under SM Entertainment USA, a subdivision of SM Entertainment, BoA debuted in the United States with the single "Eat You Up" and released her debut English-language album, BoA on March 17, 2009.

Influenced by hip hop and R&B singers such as Nelly and Janet Jackson, many of BoA's songs fall into those genres. As the singer feels she does not "have any talent for writing [songs]",[3] the writing and composition of her songs are handled mostly by her staff; for this reason, she has drawn some criticism.[4] (Though only a few of her songs are self-written, BoA began composing on her own with her Japanese debut album Listen to My Heart, in which she co-wrote and composed the song "Nothing's Gonna Change".)

BoA's multilingual skills (she speaks Japanese and conversational English along with her native Korean and has recorded songs in Mandarin Chinese)[5] have contributed to her commercial success in South Korea and Japan and her popularity throughout East Asia. She is the only non-Japanese Asian to have two million-selling albums in Japan and is one of only two artists to have six consecutive number-one studio albums on the Oricon charts since her debut. close

    The best 4 songs which BoA considers to be her best songs in her music career (2012):

    4. Energetic (2009)

    "It's a piece released in the album when I was in America. It was a very trendy song at the time. And it's a quite dashing performance. So this is a song that I sand when I entered America, and it's very meaningful to me. It's a really a song that I learned a lot from and conducted many activities with."

    3. My name (2004)

    "This song made a huge change in my image. And following No.1, it's my other representative song. There were also many people learning the hio dance, especially Young Chul oppa as always."

    2. Tree (2003)

    "During my comeback this time, I needed to sing a ballad on the comeback show. After contemplation, everyone around me said that this song is very good, so it would be great if I can sing it. So this song's musical scale span is vary large, but it's actually a very hard song to sing live. A lot of people around me really hoped I can sing this song. Singing this song again nine years later, I feel that they lyrics aren't bad."

    1. No. 1 (2002)

    "No matter what people say, I received my first Gayo Award thanks to this song. Also when people mention BoA they will also first think about No.1."

    ''If BoA wasn't here, there would be no SM. Also I wouldn’t be a producer. Like a father and producer, it is like a dream to have met your daughter. Once, I sent BoA to New York for a vacation, and during that time she actually took singing and dancing lessons. The SM family only works harder because of how hard BoA works. I want to thank BoA who said she wanted to debut in the U.S. with me without any conditions.”

    I want all of your wishes to come true. I want you to be surrounded by people you love, who love you and who you can trust. You made a difference in K-pop, you were one of the few people who made a first step towards making K-pop globally popular - and for that I am the most thankful. I really hope of hearing your sweet voice and to watch your kick ass moves in this new page of your life as well.
    Yours trully!
