Chris Lee, otherwise known as Li Yuchun, is one of the biggest pop stars in mainland China. She rose to fame a decade ago when she won the national singing competition Super Girl, and since then, she’s released six albums and a huge pile of singles, also appearing in a few movies. (Shout out to Flying Swords Of Dragon Gate, with Jet Li.) She now teamed up with the avant-pop pranksters of PC Music, which seems like a fascinating move for everyone involved. With PC Music, she’s releasing a new double A-sided single, with the new songs “Real Love” and “Only You.” PC Music figurehead A. G. Cook produced both, and they both have that hyperactive glittery sheen to them. Lee sings both in English, and I honestly cannot tell whether this counts as actual pop music or theoretical pop music. Either way, it sounds pretty good! Kinga Burza has directed a glamorous video for both songs, which throws Lee into an impeccably lit hall of mirrors. Check it out below.
The single is out today on PC Music.
