In the early part of the 2000s, she was one of the top selling new female artists along with Jolin Tsai, Elva Hsiao and Stefanie Sun. Her most famous songs are: The Promise and Beautiful World.
Power Station is a Taiwanese rock duo, composed of two brothers: Yu Chiu-hsin and Yen Chih-lin. Their music is characterized by their fast-paced rock ballads, as well as their electrifying rock anthems. Their looks and long hair stand out from the mainstream Chinese pop scene because of their resemblance to typical western Heavy Metal musicians. In 2001, Power Station released their first album on the Grand Music label (later known as HIM International Music), Walking along Jhonghsiao East Street Nine Times. The title track of that album (Chinese version of song from 1997 “Takie tango” by Budka Suflera) won the Silver Award for Best Mandarin Song at the 24th RTHK Top Ten Golden Song Awards.
