It's great to see A-fu back in a video with nothing more than a air of headphones, her nerdy glasses and her beautiful voice. Although her pronunciation isn't the best, her voice more than makes up for it in this awesome cover of Foster the People's <Pumped up kicks>.
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 have waited quite a while in anticipation of A-Fu's arrival back on the music scene , and she's definitely not one to make a quiet entrance. Despite her sweet demeanour and her soothing vocals , the singer-songwriter brings refreshing colour to the music scene with her collaborations with some of the biggest names in the music industry at the moment , and also with some much loved golden artists , such as Wu Bai in <wan mei qing ren>(perfect lover). I didn't know rock legend Wu bai had it in him to create lyrics and melodies so sweetly refreshing! Also check out her first single <Me n U> which is making it big-time on the KKBOX charts!
And in A-Fu's collaboration with red-hot producer skot suyama , he never fails to impress in her third single , <wu Xian du zi you>(unlimited freedom). For more of their collaborations , see <yue lai yue ai>(loving you more and more) also found in this album!
There have been a few new movies on the taiwanese scene lately , and following it are some of the theme songs which feature some of my favourite singers , such as A-FU and Anthony Neely!
For those of you who are like me and are missing relative newbie A-Fu (she hasn't made an appearance since mid last year where she released her EP <All happy>) she has released a new single that is the theme song for the movie (determination) starring Yao Yao. the song's name is 让我爱上你(let me fall in love with you) and totally fits the theme of the movie.
Anthony Neely worked with Skot Suyama on this song for his new movie <faithball> which is about an underdog baseball team , in which Anthony plays the coach. Sounds promising！ The song is already making it pretty big on the charts , especially in singapore where on the 9.33 YES FM charts it has made it into the top 10. A song with a really funky , grounding beat which really gets you going and really sets the theme for the movie. I want to watch it already!
