I'd just like to address something regarding the lyric translation polls. Kimberley Chen seems to be quite a popular answer , but Id just like to point out that all Kimberley chen lyric translations have been posted up on the lyrical liltings blog. So if you're looking for them or want me to put them up , they're already up there.
Here's the link to Kimberley's archive on the lyrical liltings blog:

first episode of their series, "Scratch n Win" May... enter this one! If you have a good friend or family
member that is similar to any of the characters within the first episode , tag

It is my pleasure to let you know that I have opened a facebook page for Asian pop weekly so that you can be updated even more conveniently with the latest news about your favourite singers and albums! As facebook is my main source of information, I'll mainly be sharing news from the official websites of artists and providing short translations if I can about events they may be having or perhaps new albums that might be coming out soon. There are also lots of promising new singers and bands who use facebook as their main source of interaction , so I think it would make it a lot easier to introduce them to you guys!
Also I guess it would be a better platform on which you could request lyric translations , or provide me with any feedback or questions that you may have. I hope that you can support asianpopweekly by liking us on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/asianpopweeklyweebly .
Thanks to all readers for your continual support and hope to see you on the facebook page soon!
I've actually wanted to do this artist recommendation for a while now, but kept pushing it back. But here it is! Many of you probably haven't heard of this upcoming talented singer-songwriter named Dena Chang , but she's slowly and steadily making her way upwards in the chinese music scene!
She started out on youtube , and has garnered the attention of many with her covers of both English and chinese songs , as well as her bubbly and sweet personality! Most recently, she's started the transition from more impromptu covers to working with Indie music label 乐人media to make her very own music video for her cover of Justin Timberlake's <Mirrors> , and her cover of Maroon 5's <Payphone> has been making its rounds around youtube and Taiwan , with her most recently performing it at a telecommunications event!
But her biggest selling point aside from all this is definitely her voice. I don't even have the right words to describe my surprise when I heard such a big, voice coming out of such a small girl! She's so strong on her vocals, keeping listeners grounded but at the same time she brings a perfectly rounded sweetness in her voice, combining these elements to create versatility and a very different sound!
P.S she was sweet enough to like our Asianpopweekly facebook page and I'm definitely grateful for her support too!
Follow her on facebook at:

Here's her cover of Justin Timberlake's <Mirrors> , which she arranged herself, and her original cover of Maroon 5's <Payphone>! Enjoy!
