Hot babe in JJ’s new song – 熟能生巧

This is the new song by JJ熟能生巧. So who’s the hot babe in his new song? Her name is Akemi. She is a Taiwanese model. She was born in Brazil, but growed up in Tokyo (wanna know more about her, visit here).

A follow-up from my previous post – 林俊杰的赤壁之战. I think the chinese oriental type of music (which Jay Chow usually sings) may not be suitable for JJ. He sounds too modern for that. What did you guys think?

林俊杰的赤壁之战

As I was googling for the game – 赤壁online, I found this song by JJ Lim. The title of the song is called 醉赤壁, theme song for the movie 赤壁. Not too bad but it can be better given the fact that 方文山 has involved in writing the lyrics (you can access the lyrics of the song here). 


By the way, 隋棠 and JJ are the celebrities who endorse the game.
