C-pop Saturday

It's been a bit since I last did a C-pop Saturday post, so here is the first one of the autumn! (In June I said it was the first one of the summer and it ended up being the only one, but never mind! lol.  :)


Vinida- Blood Moon

First up is Blood Moon by Chinese rapper Vinida. Her full name is Vinida Weng (I've also seen her called Weng Ying so perhaps that's her Chinese name*) and she is based in Fuzhou, in China's Fujian province. She debuted on Chinese variety show Sing! China in summer 2016 and went on release her debut single Dirty Mind in December. Vinida is signed to Modern Sky Records, China's largest independent record label and has released a full length album called Solo.

Vinida is singing on in Blood Mood rather than rapping. The song has a nice vibe especially the chorus.


Vinida-  Queendom

Here is another song by Vinida where she's rapping. It's called Queendom and was released in April 2017.
