Edison Chen‘s highly anticipated album Confusion is out now! It’s a really great album. I really enjoyed his last album in 2007 讓我再次介紹我自己 (Allow Me To Reintroduce Myself) which featured production work by Clinton Sparks, Just Blaze and other well-known hip-hop producers, but I think Confusion is definitely a big leap forward in production quality and EDC’s overall sound. He’s really stepped his game up on this one. The only people I know that helped produce the album is Squeak E. Clean (N.A.S.A.), Dr. Luke & Ammo, and Jay Chou. I’ll add the names of other producers next to the tracks as I find out who did what [Finished. Pretty impressive list]. I have a feeling he took after his buddy Kanye when he decided to release a slew of songs right before the album was released. Definitely not mad at him.

Despite the album being in mandarin, I don’t understand a single thing (I’ve forgotten most of my mandarin since the last album – lol), but that’s never stopped me before.
Maaaaaaaaaaaaaasive remix of Edison Chen (陳冠希)’s Mr. Sandman by none other than N.A.S.A. featuring Sammi (郑秀文) & MC HotDog. This is the first time I’ve heard Sammi, but I’m completely in love with her vocals! How couldn’t you?! I literally can’t stop listening to this song! View behind the scenes photos from the video plus lyrics on Sina.

Here’s the new Edison Chen (陳冠希) single I mentioned just yesterday.

This song turned out waaaaaay better than I expected it to be. Good way to celebrate his birthday today with a banging song & video. In the past, Chen has worked with Lupe Fiasco, Verbal (m-flo), Kanye West, Just Blaze, Clinton Sparks and a few other big names in hip-hop. He’s been laying low for the past few years, but he’s is definitely stepping his game up. EDC is planning to release his 4th full Mandarin album sometime soon.
