Jane Zhang featuring Timbaland – Dust my Shoulders Off
Super Girl alumni and power-vocal Jane Zhang has made her official English debut with Dust my Shoulders Off, a song produced by and featuring Timbaland— the Midas of dance tunes; who practically made Timberlake’s jump from boy band to solo musician, turned Nelly Furtado from spiritual pop singer to club hit maker. And of course, super pals with Missy Elliott and Aaliyah.
This breezy pop tune with a cheerful beat is turned upside down with the direction of Taiwanese directors Outerspace Leo (廖人帥) and Muh Chen of Grass Jelly Studios , the studio behind the special effects; featuring Jane in all sorts of famous paitings— starting with Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks, Vincent van Gogh’s self-portrait, Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring, Seurat’s A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, Edvard Munch’s The Scream, René Magritte’s The Son of Man, among others.
Muh Chen’s videography is extensive, and Outerspace Leo’s other credits includes Cindy Wang’s Maiden’s Prayer (少女的祈禱) [MV]. Leo was -apparently- a member of the Taiwanese band CIRCUS, which disbanded two years ago .
