Having Korean singers collaborate with your favorite non-Hallyu artists is something that K-pop fans dream about. We imagine our fantasy collaborations in our heads and even become producers for them in our dreams, imagining what sound they could create together.

Some collaborations have started to happen and one can dare to dream that anything on our list could actually come to fruition. In the last list we had for you, we talked about G-Dragon collaborating with Grimes. That hasn't happened yet, but we did see G-Dragon cameo in her music video for "REALiTi." And his labelmate, CL, has been seen working with Grimes and her close friend Blood Diamonds in preperation of her American debut.

Without further ado, let's explore more of our fantasy collaborations between K-pop and non-Korean artists.

5. SHINee's Jonghyun and Years & Years

Years & Years' vocalist, Olly Alexander, shares a similar style of vocals to SHINee's vocalist Jonghyun. They both love to show off their incredible high pitches and it will truly be a match made in heaven. Just imagining Jonghyun singing this track with Years & Years gives us goosebumps. The chorus is perfect for Jonghyun to join them on the track and have a solo towards the climax of the song and even, perhaps, a dance solo at the end.

4. Red Velvet, Ariana Grande, Jessie J, & Nicki Minaj

The ladies of Red Velvet just came back with their first mini-album "The Red." Their new brassy experimental pop song "Dumb Dumb" has gained attention online due to similarities to another popular track out there. The song in question is Jessie J's collaboration with Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj. Yes, there are some similarities between the two tracks, but it's clearly not plagiarism. Instead on focusing on that, what if instead we imagined the parties in question doing a collaboration track? It could be part two of "Bang Bang" and it could be a mass hit. Many fans out there have been already showing support and have created mashups of the two songs giving us a clear idea of what a collaboration between these eight powerful ladies would sound like.
