[HIGHLIGHTS] Tai Yi太一: Jade 玉

I had heard of Tai Yi’s music before seeing him perform but never made the connection as a lot of songs on my playlist are from lesser known singers. Tai Yi is truly unique and when he came onto Singer 2020, he exuded maximum confidence. While he isn’t wildly famous, he has 100% faith in…

[HIGHLIGHTS] Zhou Shen周深: Baby До свидания

When Zhou Shen was announced to be on Singer 2020 歌手·当打之年, I was ecstatic. He definitely did not disappoint. Week after week, he reveals new things about his singing to everyone. This week he brings his rendition of Baby До свидания. He opens with a Russian excerpt that I believes come from an actual Russian…

蔡依林 Jolin Tsai: 怪美的 Ugly Beauty Music Video Review

Song Rating: 10/10 | Music Video Rating: 10/10 The queen is back! Always happy to see Jolin continue to make music after so many years. Despite being a veteran in the industry, she’s always still coming up with new things and honestly is one of the hardest working artists I know of. I love Jolin’s…

[OGvsCOVER] Wanli万里 – HYUKOH혁오

I heard Cai Weize蔡維澤’s (from Taiwanese band, Fool and Idiot 傻子與白痴) version of Wanli万里 before the original. I won’t go too deep in my affinity for Fool and Idiot’s music in this post (there’s too much to say, they’re amazing). I had been following the show ‘The Coming One明日之子2’ for awhile and rooting for my favorite,…

[BROWN SUGAR THOUGHTS] Crazy Rich Asians’s Yellow by Katherine Ho

This probably sounds really bad, I haven’t actually seen ‘Crazy Rich Asians’, I won’t give too many excuses other than the fact that I didn’t have time. I’ve been ecstatic for the movie’s success though and have heard so many amazing things about it. Feels great to have a good representation. I came across the…

[OGvsCOVER] Nunchucks雙節棍 – Jay Chou 周杰倫

I was really excited when I first found out Hua Chen Yu 華晨宇 was performing Nunchucks雙節棍 (originally by the king, Jay Chou 周杰倫) on ‘Singer歌手’ earlier this year. Hua Hua singing Jay Chou’s music is basically one of my favorite artists singing the song of my absolute favorite artist. Hua Hua didn’t disappoint. The original has…

[OG vs COVER] 來自天堂的魔鬼 The Demon from Heaven

I know it’s natural for people to always love the original more than the covers. People feel a sense of superiority when they attach themselves to the OG. But in this case, I will shamelessly say that the performance version of ‘The Demon from Heaven來自天堂的魔鬼’ by (supposedly) Sam Lee李聖傑 is better than the original by…
