Music Sundays: Jackson Wang – 100 Ways

First, let me start this off by saying that I am a casual fan of GOT7, though I’ve liked all 3 of their most recent Korean releases (Spinning Top, Call My Name, and Dye) and would recommend checking them out (Spotify). I’ve also enjoyed some of the solo/duo work that the members have done, but most of Jackson’s songs haven’t really done anything for me. However, a friend of mine suggested that I give 100 Ways a try and boy am I glad that I did. It’t unlike anything either GOT7 or Jackson has released (as far as I know) before.

It’s really, really good and even if you don’t think you like pop music, give it a listen. Actually, you should watch the music video too. Why? Because it’s gorgeous and Jackson’s backup dancers are the Kinjaz, an extremely talented dance group. Anyway, I hope you like this song and video as much as I do.

Also, Kinjaz posted a behind the scenes video on the Facebook page and it’s also worth a watch. You can find it here. I would really like a full movie based on this music video, thanks.

Music Sundays: Xiao Yu – 同在 With You (華納 official HD 官方MV)

I’ve been a fan of Xiao Yu since I first listening to his album, 再一次, back in 2012. Which was the last time he released anything new. You can listen to that album on Spotify. That means it’s been five years since he’s released anything and he finally released a music video and a new album and, you guys? They’re amazing. I expected nothing less and I was rewarded greatly. Please enjoy this!

If you like it, check out the new album.

Yonghwa is the lead singer of the kpop band (they don’t really dance, they play instruments and sing) CNBlue, of whom I am a fan. While Yonghwa isn’t my favorite in the group, I absolutely love his voice. When I read that he was going to release a solo album, I was pretty excited. And then I found out that he was collaborating with one of my favorite Mandarin singers, JJ Lin, which made me even more excited. This is the music video for their collab song — and it’s fantastic. For subtitles, just turn on closed captioning (CC).

Music Sundays: 吴亦凡 Wu Yi Fan – 《时间煮雨》Time Boils the Rain {Official Audio}

Wu Yifan (known also as Kris, formerly of the kpop group EXO) just released a single(?) for the third installment of the Chinese film franchinese Tiny Times and it’s WONDERFUL. I mean, I’m a fan of his, so maybe that’s also the fangirl in me talking, but … decide for yourself.
