Sing Sing Rabbit sures us that “Tomorrow Will Be Better”
Hong Kong singer-songwriter Sing Sing Rabbit, who once successfully trended her first video adapted singer Z-Chen’s “May I Love You” into a medley of 10 of her favourite love songs on several search engines and received extensive media coverage in Taiwan, now started her Japan music journey cooperating with the Japanese entertainment giant “Yoshimoto Kogyo” last year.
On 4th of November, she officially launched her new single “Tomorrow Will Be Better”. The song describes that the pandemic in 2020 has taken away people’s normal lives. What used to be a normal meeting with relatives and friends has now become meeting each other through the screen. The streets that were once full of laughter are now left with boring colours. The song encourages everyone to overcome obstacles together, we will hold hands with friends again, and the streets full of memories will regain the light of the past. It is a cheering song that brings warmth!
Because of a pandemic, there are no more exciting travel plans. The stores are closed and the shows are postponed… We can only hope for a day to return to our normal lives. In addition to the pandemic, Hong Kong is also undergoing earth-shaking changes. Traditional values are constantly being shaken, which makes people feel heavier. Many people were forced to be separated from other places during this period due to travel control, isolation measures, etc. Sing Sing Rabbit, like everyone else, has not seen friends, family and partners overseas for nearly a year, which for an artiste overseas who is in the middle of developing a music career in Japan becomes even more difficult to promote due to not being able to travel.
Although the pandemic has made it difficult to meet with people, Sing Sing Rabbit believes that music has the magic power of transcending regions and unites like-minded people. During this period, she received comments from fans all over the world on YouTube, including one fan from Poland. A place that she has never been to, nor has she thought about how her music can reach. This Polish fan got to know Sing Sing Rabbit’s songs through the mobile game Cytus II, and gained positive energy and courage to solve problems! Although she needs to use Google Translate to understand the content of the message of fans sometimes, watching the comments of fans from different countries has given Sing Sing Rabbit more creative motivation. She hopes that after the pandemic, she can go to more different places and meet with fans there.
Starting from 2019, when Sing Sing Rabbit released singles, illustrators from all over the world were invited to create an illustration for each of her songs’ cover design. This is her “Art & Music” project and she hopes this project will be able to let public enjoy an art with sound, so that more people can access different illustrations. For single, “Tomorrow Will Be Better”, she has invited illustrator Lê Phuong Mai from Vietnam to create a painting full of inspiration, hope and poetry in the style of watercolour painting. Several innocent children are touring around the city on the music bus. The Japanese words on the bus “Wonders are waiting to start!” fits the theme of the song and hopes that the song will bring a better message for tomorrow.
