Listen to Jolin’s new single: We Are One – Hardwell feat. Jolin Tsai!

This song, described as a “warm-up single for the new album”, marks Hardwell‘s first collaboration with a Taiwanese singer.

Jolin declared about Hardwell “Hardwell’s style is very masculine, it’s very attractive to me, so I wanted to try and take up the challenge!”

She had a great time recording the song: “I was listening to his music while reading the lyrics, it was a very special time, you could stay there til the end of the world!”

When she first heard the demo she felt something special. The process of collaboration is something very exciting to her, after the song was born she loved it.

Hardwell said: “I was very honoured to work with Jolin, I like this song, I hope you’ll like it!”

Batch of news (performances, new single coming, GMA performance canceled…)

Golden Melody Awards performance canceled

Jolin and aMEI were supposed to perform together on stage at the Golden Melody Awards on June 24th…

However, an award added at the last minute made everything fall apart: a Golden Melody Special Contribution Award (Popular Music) for the late Taiwanese singer Tom Chang.
Producers of the show decided to make aMEI sing a tribute to Tom Chang instead of performing with Jolin, and aMEI agreed.
Afterwards Jolin decided not to go through with the performance since aMEI was not involved in it anymore.

[EDIT 06/03 w/ videos] Jolin has afternoon tea with Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise and Jolin had oolong tea on May 24th in the afternoon at Sin Hong Choon in Taipei!
The actor was in Taiwan as part of his promotional activities in Asia for The Mummy.

It turns out that Jolin and Tom Cruise already met 17 years ago at Mission Impossible II press conference in Taipei, back then she offered him flowers for his first visit in Taiwan:

Last Wednesday Tom Cruise immediately praised Jolin and congratulated her on her success.
Jolin said that 17 years ago, she was a little girl, and nervous, she didn’t dare looking at him in the eye, but now she is not nervous at all.

They talked about their respective lives, respective careers and their fans.
When asked about what they do in their spare time, Tom Cruise answered that making a movie, traveling around the world to promote it and meeting people was like a holiday for him, and the best kind, and that he loved to learn new things as well.

It took Jolin 7 days to make the two cakes you will see in the pictures.
Tom Cruise said several times “You really made these yourself? So amazing!!”
He was reluctant to “destroy” the cake, but Jolin insisted.
Tom Cruise offered Jolin peonies and a diary inscribed with her name, and said “17 years ago you gave me flowers so now it’s my turn to return the favor”.
The actor wrote a secret in the diary: Jolin said she would write her own secrets in it, and that the diary would become a secret between the two.
