R-Chord is set to release his all new album "Want You To Know" which was produced once again by the awesome Skot Suyama.
This time, the album is based around the concept of R-Chord's rebellious and straight-talking personality.
The album's theme is outlined as such:
"The music world doesn't have absolute blacks or whites.
When hypocrisy is pervasive, when the cruel reality naked,
The core of his world is music.
This is his free determination, his skill"
His album will be released on the 26th of August, and includes many collaborations, this time with Nine Chen, Nine one one, Z-Chen, MJ116 and Jess Lee on 12 high-voltage tracks that are all about the music.
It has been said that the visuals for this particular album are closely themed to reflect R Chord's daily life and show a more toned down, but still edgy image.
His electrifying first single "Braveheart" is out now, listen to it below!

Popular host "Butterfly" has truly emerged from her cocoon with a new image that has shocked fans and audiences all over Asia!
The host who initially became popular as a personality on Children's TV shows made the transition into hosting "100% Entertainment" along with Show Lo and Alien Huang as well as members of the band Lollipop F a couple years back, and has been becoming more and more beautiful ever since.
Having admitted to some plastic surgery to enhance her looks, we applaud Butterfly for her candidness!
Signed under Show Lo's artist management company Creativity Entertainment, the pair have been keeping her EP details under wraps for a while, but released her five-track EP on the 19th of August.
Her first single "Sorry for the wait" was produced by famous producer Starr Chen, with lyrics penned by former member of Magic Power Gaga.
In the music video, she can be seen incorporating a handsome mix of Twerk, Hip Hop and Swag into her dance moves, while singing and rapping with the best of them. Now that was unexpected!
Check out her first single below:

A year after the release of his debut album 'Learn to Love", talented balladeer and singer-songwriter Eric Chou is back with his second album titled "What Love Has Taught Us".
After learning to love, he's back to teach us what love has taught him. Makes sense, don't it?
Hot off the presses, his single "How Are You" has become a cult success this summer, having already been covered hundreds of times since its release and attaining over 4 million YouTube hits since.
From what I've heard, Chou has certainly upped his game since the last album. His melodies flow a little more than they did before, and incorporate more sophisticated elements this time around.
As for his vocals, well...heart-meltingly warm and emotive as usual.
However, fans can expect more breakthrough efforts from Chou in this album, as he delves into the EDM genre and works with the likes of EDM/Hip Hop producer Starr Chen on single "Let it go".
Overall, given Chou's track record for some really solid, melodic tracks, I'm super excited to hear the rest of his album!

Since her debut album in 2012 titled "Home Girl", resident Sweetie pie Sharon Kwan has stayed quiet for the last four years, before finally releasing her second album "Blossom 2.0".
Releasing her first album when she was only 16 and now as a 20-year old, this second album's theme and name signifies her growth as a person, and her blossoming into a beautiful young lady!
In this album, Kwan hopes to reflect upon the different possibilities that are open to a 20 year old girl. Having participated in "The Voice of China" under the tutelage of Mandopop King Jay Chou, he has also put in a few good words for her by recommending her to try singing fast songs rather than her usual balladic or easygoing sound.
She took up his suggestion in this album, by releasing the song "Luv Me Luv me" which wowed audiences with her 180 degree change in appearance and her even more electrifying youthful energy.
Also for this second album, Kwan has honed her songwriting chops by participating for the first time in the songwriting process. Due to her increased involvement in the creative process, Kwan was inspired and thus has two self-composed songs in this album; "Shhh" and "Go away, Mother F*cker".
Once again working with the godfather of R & B and mentor David Tao as the producer for Kwan's album, being able to produce works which meet his high criteria is a feat in itself!
In these four years, Sharon wishes to now show her fans that she has grown a lot, not just as a person, but also in terms of her skills, transforming herself into a professional artist who can sing, dance, play musical instruments, and self-compose songs!
So proud of her for taking this next step, and can't wait to listen to her whole album!

Songbird Rose Liu has announced that she will be releasing her debut album in October this year.
Coming from an untrained background, she rose up the ranks to clinch second place in Taiwanese televised singing reality show "Super Star Avenue" , and further rose in the public eye when she came third runner-up from Na Ying's team on the Chinese reality singing competition "Voice of China".
It has been seven years since her debut, with Rose going through many periods of uncertainty in her journey, such as working as an independent artist without a record label for several years, before finally re-signing and going through seven levels of gruelling auditions to make it onto "The Voice Of China".
Expressing her excitement at finally being able to release her own album, Liu took to Facebook to share her experience doing her first photo shoot for the album, saying that after she had gone through all the preparations for the shoot, she burst into tears upon standing in front of the camera, as she was so moved by the effort all her team had put into allowing this dream of hers to come true!
Boss and artiste Matilda Tao also surprised Liu by livestreaming her recording session, giving fans a sneak peek into her latest song "Yet I still think of you". Listen to it below! Oh, and once again, congratulations Rose!
