Jasmine Yen, daughter of Ip Man star Donnie Yen, has just dropped an R&B music video...and its kind of a bop.

The song IDK is written and performed in both Mandarin and English. Its a lighthearted, new-school R&B jam about young love, and lessons learned through trial and error.

Yen, who just signed with Sony Music Entertainments RCA Records, also had her live debut on July 30th in Singapore at the Majulah Music Night, where she performed unreleased tracks from her new album, eight of which will be released on September 1st.

Although IDK is her major debut, Yen is no stranger to the spotlight; shes the daughter of action star Donnie Yen — known for Ip Man, Star Wars, Mulan, and upcoming John Wick: Chapter 4 — and model Cissy Wang. With the release of her first single, Yen mentioned that shes already bracing herself for criticism as a nepo baby.

Its not the first time Chinese audiences have seen that. When Annabelle Yao, the youngest daughter of Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei, dropped a music video, she got absolutely slammed on social media.

Cant sing, cant dance, but if you have money...was one memorable comment.

That being said, some folks are already familiar with Yens work. She started composing music at age seven, and has written over 70 songs to date. In 2020, her father posted a video of her singing and performing a song on the piano dedicated to her late grandfather, and other videos, which showed the evolution of her singing and dancing, have also generated buzz on social media.

On YouTube, the reviews are quite positive.

“On repeat all morning!” reads one comment.

“Randomly stumbled upon this,” reads another. “Actually legit good.”

Nepo baby or not, Jasmine Yen is one to watch.
