This recently released funky, cantopop song is amazing. I heard it while listening to SBSpopasia on iHeartradio like three weeks and a half ago. It took me a while to find the song because my trackid app showed the song’s title and artist in Chinese. But sadly as of now, I don’t know that much Chinese. But I manage to find through doing a lot of searching on google, which was totally worth it in the end. The music video got some high school musical vibes to it, don’t ya think? The song also has that 1980s music vibe with funky-electro too. The video is also kinda funny and there’s also like this horror movie like part at the end. You got to watch it. The link is below:

C-pop is short for Chinese pop. Chinese pop is from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and other countries near China. C-pop also has subgenres, three as of now to be exact, Mandopop (Mandarin pop) Cantopop (Cantonese pop) and Hokkien pop or T-pop (Taiwanese pop).
This is partly because there is more than one way to speak Chinese. If you don’t understand what I mean you should do some research. It will be quite interesting, I tell you.
Mandopop is sung by many artists from Mainland China but also some from Hong Kong. Even some K-pop groups sing in mandarin like EXO, for example. Cantopop is sung by artists from Hong Kong since that’s the local dialect there. T-pop is sung by artists from Taiwan. Mandopop, Cantopop, and T-pop are all also sung by singers and groups from neighboring and foreign countries.
