Jill Vidal ft. San E – Being Told Chinese MV

Hong Kong based British singer Jill Vidal is making her comeback, six years after her drug scandal in 2009. She was found guilty for drugs possession in Japan but escaped prison time. Her rising showbiz career was badly affected though.

Vidal was only semi-active since the scandal until signing with Warner Music HK in 2015. She released a new single, titled Being Told (被滿足的愛), in May 2016. She went to Seoul to record the song which featured popular Korean rapper San E.

It’s actually a decent song. There’s clear K-pop elements and it sounds different from standard Cantopop, which may be a good thing since Cantopop is going nowhere these days. This could just be the song she needs for a reboot.

Vidal and her singer-boyfriend Kelvin Kwan were arrested in Tokyo on February 24 over allegations of marijuana possession. The cops later found more banned substance, believed to be heroine, from Vidal’s hotel luggage.

Kwan was released without charge after 32 days in jail, while Vidal has to face the court because having heroine is more severe than marijuana.
