Listen to Jolin Tsai’s ‘Play’ from Kung Fu, Season 2, Episode 1 — it’s incredibly catchy

Taiwanese singer songwriter Jolin Tsai’s ‘Play‘ was a lovely addition to last night’s return of Kung Fu Kung Fu, Season 2, Episode 1, “Year of the Tiger: Part 1“.

Because, while Tsai isn’t particularly well-known in the English speaking world, she is huge in the Chinese speaking world and is thought to be one of that world’s most influential entertainers.

Tsai is also one of the most admired artists in Taiwan, as she is a female singer who is completely in charge of her own career.

From only releasing her music on Eternal, her own record label, to making every decision about her music and other aspects of her career, doing so has caused Jolin Tsai to become one of the most successful female singers in Taiwan in the last two decades.

As a result, her record sales are in the tens of millions.
