Yen-J is all set to release his newest album , dubbed Y3 by himself. It is named <Single Love> and is said to be about his ex-girlfriend (no , not the first one that he wrote his debut album about!). He has released two single for this album already ; First up, <打喷嚏>(Sneezing). What I really like about Yen-J is that he always injects a really weird but funny sense of humour into his works and always uses very interesting vocal backings which are not commonly used within the chinese music industry nowadays. Basically , if you're fazed by him singing "Ha-chew Ha-chew.." over and over again don't be , just take it in your stride because he's weird that way , and enjoy the song! I also enjoyed the hook where he edited a person sneezing and turned it into a beatbox mix , adding another element to the song. It has a really sweet theme , which is that when you sneeze , that means someone is thinking about you. Hmm...food for thought. Funnily enough , the MV which stars Janet hsieh as the female lead is all about food and nutrition. Enjoy!
Second Up: Yen-J's second release which has been praised by Mayday's Ashin as addictive and really nice! (In his own words of course). I myself also quite like this song , which introduces new genres such as R n B which provides a strong foundation for this song with elements of hip hop on it! The lyrics are heartfelt and simple with a very strong and concise message!
Yen-J is known for his fresh , innovative and creative ideas about music , and although I haven't heard his album yet , these two tracks leave me wanting more !
