For my high school friends.
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.
Chinese music video for Can We Smile Together (loose translation) by actress Angelababy. It’s a movie soundtrack for The First Time which she co-starred with Taiwanese actor Mark Chau.
[Update] The video may not have a preview image after a YouTube update but it’s still playable.
Taiwanese pop star Jay Chou wrote the song, and his usual working partner Vincent Fang provided the lyrics. Decent piece, and Angela did well considering that she’s not a professional singer.
The movie is a loose remake of a 2003 Korean film …ing. It’s about the romance between a chronically ill girl and a free-spirited rocker. The mother-daughter love is a highlight too but not featured in this video.
Chinese music video of Everyone Who Loves Me by Taiwanese singer Selina Jen of pop group S.H.E. The song was released a few days prior to her wedding on October 31 – as a thank you message to people who supported her all this while.
The 30-year-old Taiwanese star is still recovering from severe burn injuries from a filming mishap a year ago. The wedding was delayed for half a year, but thankfully she’s doing well enough to walk down the aisle despite the postponement. Congrats.
