Taiwan-based Mandopop Girl Group S.H.E.
    2007-06-27 13:39:33     CRIENGLISH.com
Taiwan-based Mandopop girl group S.H.E. is arguably the most popular girl group in the Chinese pop music scene. The three members, namely Selina Ren, Hebe Tian and Ella Chen, have just released their tenth album, "Play". Here in this album, you'll not only hear their angelic harmonization, but also get to enjoy more music produced by the singers themselves. Now, let's let the music play! And the DJ is Yunfeng.

S.H.E. seems always able to come up with new surprises. One of the biggest attractions of their latest album is the first track called Zhongguohua, or "Mandarin Chinese". With a fabulous melody and tongue-twister rapping, the song is quite fresh, catchy and unique.


Another exciting track in this album is "Boom", which has an exotic style that S.H.E. had never tried before. The song therefore generates quite a different feeling from those they used to sing. It's feminine, it's cool and it's charming!


S.H.E's latest album is named "play" perhaps because it's the music that you can enjoy with a playful mind and the music that you just want to keep playing. Inspired by the melody of the famous nursery rhyme "London bridge is falling down", the track "London bridge is falling down" sounds a bit childish at times, but its cheerful melody and beautiful harmonization will brighten up your day. 

( London Bridge Is Falling Down)

Though the girls had written part of the lyrics and melody of their songs before, it is the first time that they created two complete pieces of their music. Hebe was the lyricist for "Say You Love Me", while Selina and Ella collaborated to produce "Wifey". "Wifey" is probably the most anticipated song of all. The lyrics, though simple, are able to describe the close sister-ship between the three girls. Fans who have followed them ever since they debuted or long enough will find it specially touching.
