Love it or hate it, President Donald Trump's White House commands a lot of media attention.

It seems like newspapers, talk shows and social media all have been filled with an avalanche of executive orders, chaotic White House press briefings, dubious White House-Kremlin connections and a barrage of Trump’s accusations of "fake news."

We love music here at The World, and we love to share our latest favorites with you. From a DJ in Barcelona to Latin rockers in Miami, give a listen to some of what we loved in February.

Born Star Training Center, which opened two years ago, is New York’s first K-Pop cram school. It’s actually a branch of a chain founded in South Korea back in 2008 by a "real" Korean pop star, Tae-Won Kim, a famous guitarist/producer in a band called Boohwal.

Sophie Choi, the director of Born Star, was a student at the cram school only a year ago. "Times passed, things happened, and now I'm here taking care of the kids," she says.
