Here to make Monday a little easier =)
Here to make Monday a little easier =)

Thank goodness for snow day or I might not be able to do Music Monday again. I do apologize for skipping two (?) weeks of Music Monday. But I’m going to make it up to you guys with some great music in this week’s Music Monday =)

This week Su Xing makes a comeback with a new single, Jimmy Lin sings to his son Kimi, Ding Dang reminding you BBJQ will air sometime this year, and many more.

Let’s start with David Cui 崔龙阳, a Beijing-based grass root musician studying at the University of International Relations (yea…), released his first album 《Hello!》. The music video below is for the English single Mirror, first released in 2012.

Jay Chou still trumps JJ Lin in Sales

JJ...too cute to be diao? It's okay, maybe next time!

Despite JJ Lin’s Sixology album being generally considered better than Jay Chou’s latest release Capricorn, and the fact that he collabed with people all over the Chinese music industry (HK’s Charlene Choi, Taiwan’s Maichi, and China’s Kym Jin Sha) the Taiwan music charts have JJ’s newest release as having debuted at #5 with only 2.97% of sales. Jay Chou is at number two this week with 19.9% of the sales. S.H.E dropped all the way to 9 from # 2 but had a pretty good run. Most impressively One Million Star’s Jam Hsiao is still strong after 17 weeks at number 6 and even more impressive, Ding Dang’s Decisively Loved is clinging to the list at spot 14 after 16 weeks, which I’m sure is a rarity for a mainland singer in Taiwan. Jay Chou’s album sales has just recently crossed the 1 million number mark.
