Chinese-Canadian singer-songwriter Kris Wu released his latest single, Eternal Love, in Beijing on Nov 6, which coincided with his 29th birthday.
The song, written by Wu and performed in Mandarin, combines traditional Chinese folk music with hip-hop beats. Supporting the release of the new single, a micro film with the same title premiered on the same day, starring Wu and 17-year-old Japanese model, Mitsuki Kimura. She’s the daughter of Japanese mega-star Takuya Kimura and singer Shizuka Kudo. The music video tells the tragic love story between a warrior from an ancient time, played by Wu, and his lover, played by Kimura.
Eternal Love is Wu’s second single released in 2019, after Big Bowl, Thick Noodle, which was released in April and has been listened by more than 97 million times since its music video was released on Wu’s Sina Weibo account. As one of the best-selling artists in the country, Wu has over 46 million followers on his Sina Weibo account.
