Awaken-F’s summer photoshoot
Thanks to variety shoes Idol Producer and 101 , there’s once more popular boybands and girls outside of TF boys again. Here are some recent MV’s from some of the bigger ones, including Rocket Girls, NEXT, Awaken-F, Sing girlband, and a few solos from Nine Percent and M.I.C. boyband. .
On the girl group side, Chinese-styled EDM group released their latest single Night of Music 夜笙歌 with inspirations from Southeast China. I wish they would release a MV for “Accidentally Time-travelled to Ancient Times一不小心到古代” because that’s probably my favorite song from them after 寄明月.
Pop soul artist Tia Ray’s best MV so far from her new album
Meng Jia’s MV for “Free” is so beautiful it looks like a giant tourism ad for Dunhuang/Jiayuguan.
Queens-native Miss Ko and Malaysian-Australian Kimberley Chen duet in this heartfelt song about how home is where the heart is.
Probably going for the Miao Beyoncé look.
Singer Aduo combines Miao and Hunanese elements with Western fashion, music, and modern dance in the eponymous MV for her stunning new album, Reborn.
Updates of LI Yuchun’s best music for
leg day Music Monday
Some Chris Lee / Li Yuchun MV’s from her latest album and imo her best performance yet of her last album. I love how much Mahjong and Hotpot appears in all her photoshoots and MV’s lately.
Ever since Seven Sense, I’ve been waiting for a good zhongguofeng boyband, and the debut of Assassins / Men With Swords 刺客团 delivered. The MV-song combo is easily one of my favorites from a Chinese idol group in a long time. The zhongguofeng elements work well within the music arrangement and MV without seeming dated, something even Seven Sense couldn’t do this well.
Delicious 舌尖美味 is written by the members Li Wen, Wang Yaochen, Ruan Zeyi, Fang Yifei (names in order of solo parts in the song).
What Did I See In You 看走眼 is the last of Xianzi’ adorable MV’s, a surprisingly chirpy song scolding her playboy boyfriend (who irl is her husband’s former roommate).
Here’s a throwback to singer Xianzi, known for her distinct vocals and cute songs back at the peak of Taiwanese mandopop. The Guangxi native has since then moved back to the mainland and got married to ex-Top Combine member Li Mao . Unfortunately she now seems to mostly be singing boring Tan Xuan OST’s.
Known for their zhongguofeng dances, girlband Seven Sense is probably mainland’s most popular girlband in the past decade.
Girlband Seven Sense 七朵组合 is back with new single Green Snake 青蛇, a homoerotic reinterpretation of the Legend of the White Snake, whose romance began with borrowing an umbrella. Although it’s been three years and they’re two member down, their new release is still a signature Zhongguofeng pop song and dance with a practice room MV that’s more promising than their actual MV. At least it’s an improvement on their previous MV’s.
What do you think? Will they stay this time?
The holo craze spreads to China.
Both the music and MV for singer Li Na’s comeback My Way is amazing. Enjoy!
