FAYE WONG

Wikipedia Biography:

Faye Wong ( 王菲) (born August 8, 1969) is a highly successful and influential Chinese singer-songwriter and actress. Early in her career she briefly used the stage name Wong Jing Wen (王靖雯, “Shirley Wong”). Born in Beijing, she moved to Hong Kong in 1987 and rose to stardom in the early 1990s by singing ballads in Cantonese. Since 1995 she has recorded mostly in her native Mandarin, often combining alternative music with mainstream Chinese pop. In 2000 she was recognized by Guinness World Records as the Best Selling Canto-Pop Female. Following her second marriage in 2005 she withdrew from the limelight, but returned to the stage in 2010 amidst immense interest in the Sinosphere.

Although her music is quite individualized, Faye Wong is famously reserved in public and has become a cultural icon of “cool.”

She really had this string of great records going on in the late 90s that blew away most music coming out at that time on a global scale IMO. Scenic Tour, I Only Love Strangers, friggin' Fable; seriously killer albums. If she ever releases an album of new material again, I can only imagine how much scrutiny it would undergo since it's been so long since she's released anything and she set the bar pretty high towards her last recorded works.

I don't listen to her mid 90s stuff and earlier, except I do have a soft spot for her Mystery release...that opening track, despite its sorta cheesiness, is just so damn beautiful.
