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!
Yen-J will finally be releasing his new album titled <Love x pi> (pi as in the math symbol) on the 28th of June 2013. After the success of his last album with many major hits such as <战时的男朋友〉(temporary boyfriend） and Sneezing (打喷嚏) , I am so excited to see what kinds of songs he will come up with! The musical prodigy has set up his own recording/production company called 爵队制作(A pun on the last character of his name and the phrase 'absolutely') and he has written songs for singers such as newbie ANN Bai An and 家家jia jia , both of whom are nominated for this years golden melody awards , as well as fish leong and della ding!
p.s heres a sneak preview at the shooting of the music video for yen-j‘s first single for his new album. Looks promising!
Here is his single titled after the album<a good lover>
I also really love yenJ's duet with famous rock band Mayday ; Ashin's voice and yen-J's voice go together surprisingly well and I instantly fell in love with this song!
This other song that Yen-J's written for this album is chock full of inspiration and ideas , urging us to find our own unique style of music , rather than blindly following the current kpop trend ; as he sas "before , "sorry" only had to be said once"(rather than sorry sorry and nobody nobody)! based on the singles he's released so far , I am really excited for his album as he always has his own refreshing and exciting styles and ideas that he brings to the table! This song creates a fusion of dubstep , funk and chinese traditional instrumentals to produce a really awesome style. Yen-J definitely will last in this industry , and his exciting fusions remind me of Wang Leehom's chinked out music style. A good sign if you ask me!
For rainie yang's current concert , she is putting together a showcase all about the queens and princess of the chinese music industry. She has released a new single called <Love Voyage> , which is a delightful mashup of all the greatest Love songs of our generation-by female singers of course. They include the hits of jolin Tsai , Karen Mok , Rene Liu , Tanya Chua and Elva Hsiao , Fish Leong , Angela Chang and more. Can you guess which ones are in it?
She has also released a second single , which is her cover of Faye Wong's 1997 hit , <暗湧>.
