Know more on Jolin

Jolin first started out by taking part in the MTV singing competition while she was just 18. She won the top prize with a song The Greatest Love of all.

Then she was being signed on by Universal Music as a new singer from Taiwan. After about a year later, on July 1999, her first single Living With the World was released. It was sold in 7-11 stores and it was a tremendous success which led to the release of her first album on September 1999. At that time, her image was the next-door sweetie pie image and was an instant hit with teenagers, which earned her the title Teenage boys Killer.

Her 1st album, Jolin 1019 sold more than 400,000 copies around Asia, and actually had many versions of the album out across the world. With the success of her 1st album, she released her anticipated 2nd album in May 2000, Don’t Stop, and many of her hits in the album are well known throughout Asia. She also released her 1st photo book that is mainly taken in Hawaii. This album was also a tremendous success.

Her image changed for her third album Show Your Love. Being more matured and nearing the age of 21, it was a much soothing album with many new songs and tunes. However, the sales of this album were not as good as the previous two albums.

The fourth album, Lucky Number, did not manage to bring her back to the previous popularity she had although she tried certain new songs and many changes. She also sang the theme song for the movie Atlantis.

Then for a period of 1 year, due to problems with her record company, she did not cut any albums. However, she came out with her 2nd photo book, taken in Thailand, with a song composed by Jay Chou. She finally managed to sign with Sony Music and got her biggest break in her whole career.

Her album Magic, topped the Taiwan album charts for 3 full months and sold more than 300,000 in Taiwan alone. This transformation gave her what she needed to make a comeback to the music scene after being gone for almost a year. Then she just released her 2nd album, Castle, which also is the current top album in Singapore’s RIAS charts and selling well.
