    C-POP is a large "genre" and stands for Chinese pop music. This doesn't mean it has to be in one particular language, as there are many groups of spoken languages Chinese consists of, such as Mandarin and Cantonese. As long as the song is written in Chinese, a song is considered C-POP.

    ALRIGHT ALRIGHT! Now that we've got the explanation out of the way, let's move on to our faves. Mine are:

    There was a phase where I tried to find C-pop I liked. I felt like most of the good Chinese music I came across was the kind you need to understand to appreciate.. like romantic songs and ballads. The pop music where anyone can dance to it without understanding, I just didn't find a lot. I really liked Jolin Tsai, though. She made me really want to understand!

    That said, I am OBSESSED with this song from the Sleeping Dogs soundtrack.

    I used to love HIT-5 and their song Paleni (there are are more songs that I like from them but this one is my fave) but it's hard to get updates from Cpop artists that's why I just kinda faded away~

    On the other hand, my friend is big time into Cpop and she's the one who recommended Cpop artists to me :) Question tho~ Is Taiwanese pop considered Cpop too? (Sorry, I don't really know...)

    If you're trying to get into C-pop, Gem is a good singer to start with. She has pop, ballads and rock songs with high-quality music videos.

    I've been a fan of Jolin Tsai's music for years. This is from her latest album Play. Possibly one of my favorite songs of all time because of the message it delivered.
