Tank goes to number one

The Taiwan album charts continues to quickly change at the top, with five different number ones in the last five weeks. This week (May 29 to June 4) it's the turn of pop singer-songwriter Tank (呂建中, Lǚ Jiàn Zhōng) with his third album. The title The Third Round (第三回合) continues the pugilistic theme, following on from his first two albums Fighting and Keep Fighting.

Fans of Tank, sometimes known as Tank Lu, have had to wait over two and a half years for The Third Round because of Tank's health problems. The 27-year old singer underwent heart surgery to treat his condition of cardiac arrythmia (that's an irregular heartbeat in layman's terms). The album contains a song If I Become a Memory (如果我變成回憶) which reflects on his operation as well as the untimely death of his sister.
