Top 11 Most Successful* A/PIA Mainstream Artists (Musicians)
It is important to note not only the prominence of A/PIAs in mainstream society, but their impact on it as well. At first glance, one might not think A/PIAs have very much global exposure in the media (and on the radio specifically), but a deeper look reveals some musical superstars are actually of Asian/Pacific Islander descent.
Although many artists may be Americanized, this top 11 only looks at artists born in America. For example: Jay Sean, who is part-Indian and signed with an American label, does not count since he was born in the U.K. Enrique Iglesias also falls into the same category since his mother is Filipina but he was born in Spain.
