I love this song! I love Rainie Yang! I love Rainie with Joseph Chang, even if it’s all for promotional purposes! Okay, that felt good to get the fangirl enthusiasm out of me first. Pre-sales for Rainie’s new album Longing For (which is also the name of the second single off the album) have been scorching hot, as hot as the temperature in Taipei right now.
Rainie held a pre-sale mini-concert and fanmeeting in Ximending (the West Gate neighborhood of Taipei) a few days ago, where Joseph showed up as a “secret” guest to cheer her on. He then proceeding to hug her and carry her like that (see above). Fans went beserk seeing Jie Xiu and Xiao Ru so insanely sweet and cute together. Yes, I would have as well. Have a listen to the single “Longing For” below.
Joseph brought bread made by Taiwan’s internationally-acclaimed patissier for Rainie, and also told her that her album was absolutely wonderful to listen to. Rainie just smiled and sweated a lot, since it really was one of the hottest Summer days ever. I love how much they get along in real life, which explains so much of their onscreen chemistry.
The MV for “We Are All Fools” starring Rainie and Joseph has already garned 2 million views on Youtube already, and this album looks to be Rainie’s biggest hit to date based on pre-sale hype and interest. It’s all a credit to Drunken to Love You, but Rainie deserves it.
She’s been working since she was 16, when she debuted in Meteor Garden. She had to work because her father got the family into such deep debt. Rainie was on a talk show recently and started crying when talking about how much of a relief it was when she was able to pay off the debt after working for a few years because she took every project and every opportunity that came her way.
