Leehom Wang back at Number 1
Leehom Wang (王力宏 Wang Lihong) made a return to the number one position on G-Music's album chart for the week 27 February to 5 March. His album Heart.Beat (心·跳) displaced Show Luo's Trendy Man, which had held the top position for one week. Previously Heart.Beat had been at number one for two weeks.
Leehom Wang is American-Taiwanese, born and raised in New York state. He began his professional singing career in 1995, and has since released thirteen CDs. His music style has been a mixture of pop and R&B, but Heart.Beat marks a departure with a more rock-influenced sound in several of the songs. There are still, however, the obligatory pop ballads like the title track and Everything.
Heart.Beat was released at the end of last year, and has been in the charts ever since. Trendy Man dropped to number 6 position in the charts. The G-Music charts are listed here (in Chinese) and are based on weekly retail sales.
