Super Idol winner goes to number one in the Taiwan album charts

Newcomer Zhang Yunjing (張芸京) went to the top of Taiwan's G-Music charts with her debut album Unprecedented (破天荒). The 25 year old Taipei-born singer was the inaugural winner of Taiwan's version of Super Idol last year. Despite being eliminated in one of the earlier rounds, she got a second chance and went on to win the title.

Her androgynous look sets her apart from most other starlets in the Taiwan music industry, and her vocal talent is above average too. Other than that, she's a bit of an unknown quantity to most people. But the strong performance of her debut album - boosted perhaps by containing two hit songs from a Taiwan TV drama series - suggest she has a big future ahead.

The G-Music chart is based on Taiwanese retail sales for the week May 15 to May 21.
