SOTW: Wei Chen’s “Chen Ai”
魏晨 – [尘埃]

Wei Chen’s new single [V SPACE] just released a new song titled “Dust” a few weeks ago. It’s been consistently ranked in the top 10 of popular Chinese music website, YinYueTai. In 2009, Weichen met with Mainland Chinese viewers in Let’s Watch Meteor Shower as f4 member, Akira. All I remembered was his sweet baozi face paired with a deep, masculine voice. Barely 4 years later, Wei Chen is now China’s hottest idol singer. currently, Weichen is under a korean music management, hence, his mvs are reminiscent of kpop dance music videos.
I just love the beat and the lyrics in Chen Ai/Dust.Wei Chen’s amazing vocals are utilized well, compared to the other songs his korean management label produced with him. It’s very romantic-ballad-meets-kpop-dance. I think the repetition device used within this song really works for, not against it, and really makes this song fantastic.
