C-Pop Star Kris Wu Tops iTunes With Travis Scott Collab “Deserve”
China already has a well-established foothold in Hollywood, and now it looks like the Billboard charts could be next. On Wednesday (October 11), Chinese-Canadian pop star Kris Wu hit No. 1 on US iTunes with his new single “Deserve.” The 26-year-old didn’t do it alone, enlisting the talents of Post Malone producer Louis Bell and a guest feature from Kylie Jenner’s maybe baby-daddy Travis Scott. Together, Wu and Scott effortlessly bounce off of each other, trading autotuned bars over Bell’s woozy beats.
Wu, who got his start in K-Pop boy band EXO before pulling a ZAYN and flying solo, seems to be on a path to world domination these days. He already made his Hollywood debut in xXx: The Return of Xander Cage earlier this year, and is now cooking up his first album with a few big hip-hop names on board. If “Deserve” and previous single “July” are anything to go by, then Kris Wu could be one of the few Asian stars to truly make it big in the west.
