HONG KONG SAR – 9 December 2022 – Tia Lee (Lee Yu Fen), a global C-pop singer, film and television actress, and fashion icon, today released the highly-anticipated music video (MV) for her new song “Goodbye Princess” exclusively on YouTube and Weibo. The song marks another high-water mark in Tia’s global rise.
Tia Lee said, “I am very excited for this new chapter of my life and career. This song and music video was based on my personal journey. I believe it is a story that everyone can relate to – especially women, who so often bear the brunt of society’s judgment. We all have power inside us, though the world sometimes makes it challenging for us to speak up. I hope that “Goodbye Princess” can be a rallying call for women to embrace their inner strength and support each other in realising their own truth.”
The Concept and Talent Behind the Creation of “Goodbye Princess”
“Goodbye Princess” is an official farewell note written by Tia Lee to her old self, as she says goodbye to the past and reinvents herself to explore a new world. Themed around female empowerment, the song aims to encourage all women to build a more promising future for themselves.
Notably, it is the first Chinese song produced by Grammy Award winning producer, Swizz Beatz, who has created hits for a long list of music legends including Madonna, Britney Spears, Beyonce, Justin Bieber, Jay-Z and many others.
The MV for the song was produced by Actual Objects, an experimental multi-disciplinary studio based in Los Angeles that has designed unique aesthetics for international brands and artists such as Nike and Travis Scott. Set in a hyper pop fantasy world, the MV, with Cyberpunk style, depicts Tia’s metamorphosis from a sheltered highly scrutinized icon into a darker yet braver persona, ready to take on the world.
Tia thanks to the production teams who have presented her in the beautiful creative animations, stills and fashion videography, “This time, I’m back in a hyper-reality form. If the animations were a figment of the past, and the motion images telling of the present, combining the two creates the future. Now, I am excited to take everyone into this futuristic fantasy world, which holds my last farewell to the past as we welcome the future together.”
