You may not have heard of her if you're not from Indonesia, but Agnez Mo is one of Asia's biggest pop stars. The 31-year-old singer and actress has already sold squillions of records in Indonesia, and now she's making a grab for global stardom with her first 'international' album, X.
Agnez collaborated with American producer Danja on the disc, who is best known for his work with Timbaland, Britney Spears, and Madonna. This gives X a throwback sound to the urban-pop beats that dominated America's Billboard charts in the mid-to-late 2000s, which is certainly a treat for those of us who are nostalgic for that era.
The album is already off to a smashing start, with lead single "Long As I Get Paid" racking up 13 million views on YouTube. Agnez has also been profiled by Vogue, with the fashion bible calling her a "chart-topping superstar."
Check out "Long As I Get Paid" below!
