Hong Kong’s favorite idol group is coming back with new music after their one year hiatus, but this time, they are not coming back as Twins, but as solo artists.
In early April, Gillian Chung (鍾欣桐) and Charlene Choi (蔡卓妍) released their new singles separately – Gillian’s first Mandarin single, “Inertia Hibernation” <慣性冬眠> was released on April 9, while Charlene’s comeback Cantonese single, “Mistake” <錯過> was released on April 11. Both singles will be the first promotional plugs for their upcoming studio albums, which will be released next month.
With intentions to tackle the mainland Chinese market, Gillian’s “Inertia Hibernation,” a slow love ballad, is produced by Singaporean record producer Taz Tan (陈台证). The tragic romantic piece, composed by Wu Jie (吴节) and with lyrics helmed by Wu Xiangfei (吴向飞), tells the story of a girl who is attempting to recover from a broken relationship. Like permanent cracks in a mirror, one can never truly heal from a lost relationship.
Charlene’s “Mistake,” on the other hand, is autobiographical in nature and marks Charlene’s first collaboration with Hong Kong record producing group The Island. The single is written by Terry Chui (徐浩) with lyrics by The Island’s C Kwan (C君). “Mistake” is sincere and lightening. Charlene ends the song with a hopeful message – mistakes give experiences, and experience leads to accomplishments.
