Babel Records – the bubblyelectronic label that’s been slowly making waves across China – continuesfortifying its image with their Valentine’s Day single from producers/singersTruetrue (made up of Eliot Lee and Chuchu Wen) and sususu. It’s a delicious,love-struck Mandopop earworm that’s guided by some killer vocals and aninfectious rhythm. The creators waited till the jam had 300,000 listens onxiami before releasing the video, which considering its only been a month sinceits release, is damn impressive.
