The American media has been abuzz about the Wonder Girls’ track The DJ is Mine from the girl group’s upcoming TV film The Wonder Girls since the music video was released on January 11.

Billboard Buzzes About Wonder Girls’ ‘The DJ is Mine’

From Billboard to blogger Perez Hilton, the American audience has responded positively to the Wonder Girls track and music video.

Billboard.com writer Jeff Benjamin, who interestingly compares the infectious dubstep beat of the song to video game Super Mario in an article published on January 12, writes of the Wonder Girls music video featuring the School Gyrls, “Both groups look great in multi-hued dresses, ultimately coming together in the name of… killer dance moves and old school Nintendo? Seems so.”.

Perez Hilton also raves in a recent blog post, “The Wonder Girls are back and they have a track so fly, we′re pretty sure we airborne [sic] for a hot second while listening to it!”

While K-Pop fan Perez Hilton’s praise for the group may come as no surprise, online music magazine Popdust has put its two cents in on the track, and it approves.

Writer Katherine St. Asaph states in her review that the song is not only on trend but executed well. She writes, “The track’s practically a designer’s prototype of what a 2012 pop song should sound like: beats that punch holes through the synth, a slow, contoured swell up to the chorus, with its vocals either polished to gleaming or roughened up for rap and its bridge trimmed with dubstep and chiptunes like ribbon” before adding, “When too much pop sounds slapdash or haphazard, it’s a relief to hear something with all the components exactly right.”

The Wonder Girls will premiere on TeenNick on February 2.

Is it still too soon to tell or does the Wonder Girls finally have a hit that will cross over well to mainstream America?
