A-Mei Returns to Number 1

A-Mei (阿妹) returned to the number one spot on the G-Music charts with her album AMIT (阿密特). She displaced Khalil Fong who had held the top spot for the previous two weeks with his album of covers, Timeless. A-Mei originally debuted at the number one spot back in early July.

A-Mei's latest success on the album charts was, however, unfortunately borne out of tragedy. When Typhoon Morakot hit Taiwan last month, amongst the 460 lives it claimed were two of A-Mei's relatives. Since then, like many Chinese musicians, A-Mei has thrown herself into charity work supporting the victims of the disaster. As part of this charity work, AMIT has been re-released with a bonus track, 夢中作憨人. A limited edition of the album comes with a T-shirt and proceeds will go towards the typhoon relief effort, as part of the "Seed Project" (種籽計劃).
