Latest single from Joker that I’ve been listening for a while. The song was released 3 months ago on his birthday, July 17, 2021 and I thought there won’t be an MV but yay, the official MV was finally released a couple of days ago.

This year the legends or established singers include George Lam 林子祥, Chyi Chin 齊秦, Miriam Yeung 楊千嬅, Joker Xue 薛之謙, and Penny Tai 戴佩妮 (also lead singer of Buddha Jump 佛跳牆), and the new generation of singers include Calvin Hu Xia 胡夏, Eric Chou 周興哲, Sunnee 楊芸晴, Silence Wang 汪蘇瀧, Shan Yichun 單依純 and OST specialist Liu Yuning 劉宇寧. The rest are mainland Chinese singers I’ve never heard of, LOL…

Here are links to Episodes with English subtitles, however sometimes they are quite difficult to read, the links I’ve given below for each week have better English subtitles with black background (need to turn on the subtitles) which are easier to read.

This song was released under no promotion whatsoever on Chinese Valentine’s Day, Qixi Festival, last month. So this is a Valentine’s Day song. I only found out about the song today when it appeared as a recommendation for me on YouTube, haha… I am also a big fan of Joker’s vocal which is very distinctive, I don’t know how to desribe it, but just very soothing to listen to.

Most Popular Mandopop Music Videos (Part 1) YouTube 破億華語歌曲(一)

I can’t believe January 2020 is almost over, where has the time gone so quickly? I was going to do a post on most popular Chinese movie songs of the last decade since The Oscars is just around the corner, but as usual I got sidetracked while trying to compile a list, LOL. While doing some research, I came across a list of the Chinese songs that are the most watched music videos on YouTube. The list was for the Chinese songs that first hit 100 million views in the last ten years. So I thought, why not, and immediately abandoned my initial intention of just listing movie songs! This list is arranged by the first 20 Mandopop songs to achieve 100 million hits by timeline (that is when they first attended 100 million views), so they are not the on-going list of the current most watched music videos which will continue to change day by day.
