Listeners will also be up for a pleasant surprise as two of the country’s top music composers – Tang Xiao Kang and Zhang Guo Xiang – collaborate in composing all 10 songs, promising a great start to the year! It is also their first time composing Chinese New Year songs, giving listeners a fresh new experience. The song, “圆圆满满” (yuan yuan man man or “A Fulfilling New Year”), is also the theme song for ntv7’s upcoming CNY telemovie – The Super Match Maker, debuting on the first day of Chinese New Year, 3rd February at 10 p.m.
Meanwhile, the “彩色新年” (cai se xin nian or “A Colourful New Year”) music video features 8TV’s personalities spring cleaning an old folks home in Petaling Jaya, giving the folks a “brand new” home befitting the New Year. Apart from that, the music video for “桃花朵朵开” (tao hua duo duo kai or “The Blossoming Peach Flower”) has one FM’s DJs’ Jack and Jane playing students, while Kyan makes a special appearance with his funky hairdo.
