Loving you, by Chen Meixin (陈美心)
It has taken some time, about three years, but homegrown Mandarin singer Chen Meixin has finally released her first album.

According to the singer, it took so long because she could only record in between filming commitments, she starred in TV offerings such as The Illusionist, Dear Dear Son-In-Law, Guangdong Master and the subway drama, A Starry Night; as well as hosting shows such as Way To Go and On The Beat 2.

She’s shifting gears to concentrate on her music career. For now, at least. And judging by this album, it’s a career that could possibly see her in good stead.

Vocally, Meixin sits somewhere in between Kit Chan and Stefanie Sun, slightly less depth than the former, but with more emotion than the latter.

Loving You isn’t her first release though. In 2007, she released her EP, In An Instant, which was produced by renown music producer Lee Wei Song.

This album kind of builds on that: All the songs here are ballads that allow her to show off her full vocal range. Because I Love You, Finally Realised and Leave have just the right amount of musical empathy from the up-and-coming star.

True, it’s not all polished, but a diamond in the rough is still a diamond.

And if she continues to put her shoulder to the wheel, Meixin will surely get there.
