Bibi Zhou – Black Apple
After its event release before the weekend, Mainland China’s pop star Bibi Zhou unleashes the music video for Black Apple (黑苹果) online to promote her upcoming yet unnamed fifth album.
Zhou had unleashed a 30sec. preview  last week surprising fans who had no idea she was working on a new album.
The first single shows a departure from BiBi’s generally R&B styled vocals like in Liuyang River 2008 [MV] and the eclectic vocals of such hits as Canned Fish [MV], or the powerful I Miss U Missing Me [MV]. This new direction lets Zhou delve into a more pop rock flare with electronic hints.
The music video was directed by Kuang Sheng (邝盛) who previously directed BiBi in Canned Fish, and has worked with an array of artists like Jay Chou, Sammi Cheng, David Tao, Eason Chan, Mayday, Faye Wong, Fish Leong and Jolin Tsai.
There’s a YinYueTai version available.
Director Kaung Sheng is not unknown to controversy. His music video for BiBi’s Canned Fish was caught by netizens for being a shot by shot remake of Arev Manoukian’s Nuit Blanche. As of today, it is uncertain if any further claims were made.
