At noon yesterday, Taiwanese Mandopop king Jay Chou dropped a new music video on his YouTube channel. The video features Chou wearing traditional Chinese clothes, playing Chinese plucked zither, or guzheng, and dancing along with the American hip hop dance crew Jabbawockeez.

The music video is for Chou’s recent Chinese-language R&B song ‘Cold Hearted,’ one of the 12 songs from his 15th album, Greatest Works of Art, which was released in July this year.

With lyrics penned by Chou’s longtime collaborator Vincent Fang, ‘Cold Hearted’ tells a sentimental love story inspired by the famous Chinese opera piece Feng Qiu Huang (凤求凰).

Chou dropped five tracks from the album between 2018 and 2020, including ‘Won’t Cry’ and ‘Mojito.’ With the release of the video for ‘Cold Hearted,’ he has released MVs for nine songs from the album.

Multiple hashtags for the music video have been trending on the Chinese microblogging platform Weibo, with viewers celebrating the release and Chou’s dance moves.

“Can’t believe I’m watching Jay Chou dancing in the video — a bonus for fans who tune in,” wrote a fan.

“Another music video without any female performers. It’s also a great Covid promo with a group of masked dancers,” joked another fan.

Chou teased his fans about the new MV one day prior to its release, announcing the news on his Instagram. The post had garnered more than 87,000 likes at the time of writing.

“I’ve been waiting for this for a long time,” wrote one fan under Chou’s post.

Another cheered, “No matter what you release, I want a copy of it immediately.”
