Jay Chou – Mine Mine

After just recently releasing his single Exclamation [MV], Jay Chou has quickly released his next single from his upcoming new album.

Entitled Mine Mine, and completely composed (and directed) by Chou himself, the song goes back to the days of the simple love song melodies that made him so famous, except using autotune as a tool… which hardly comes off as a surprise.

The biggest problem with Jay Chou’s music now is that we seem to be outgrowing him. If these two singles are the best he has to offer, it seems we’re in for a bumpy ride.

Here. There. Everywhere. Punished soul that usually watches what nobody wants, but sometimes gets lucky.

    Despite the change in shooting speed, because Jay Chou obviously shot this at a lower speed to make it seem sharper in the actual MV, his dancing has improved xD

    I played it in my car and my gf wants to repeat it. She also had to ask who sang it. Jay chou’s music is changing. And it’s for the better I think.

      @John, really? That’s interesting! Is Jay Chou your gf’s first Chinese pop singer? Coz we’ve talked about on the site how he is many people’s first Cpop taste haha.

    @amy, yeah. He hasn’t dance this ‘perfect’ ever in his career, imo.

    @john, that’s interesting. I do think Mine Mine goes back to the simple melody that Jay Chou was so good at, but I think in terms of satisfying his older fans, he’s dropping the ball. At least for most of them.

    I think this song is lovely, but the autotune is killing it a little.

      @Julili, Jay is a great composer in general. He really does compose great ballads… I dunno about his rock or r&b stuff though xD His piano is killer too.

    why is he using autotune. not like we didn’t enjoy hearing his voice before and now we have to listen to the robotic version of it. i think i became less of a fan over the years after his cowboy album and everything became a watered down version of his previous songs due to his too busy engagements of acting directing and not enough hand on his music.

    @pd, I actually don’t think his first albums were that great. In fact, I wrote Making Albums: Perpetually Missing the Mark, which explains why Jay has never made an excellent album.
