While Taiwanese “King Of Pop” Jay Chou is busy writing and recording a theme song for the Chinese version of DreamWorks Animation’s “Kung Fu Panda 3“, Luhan surprised his fans by releasing “Deep”, the official promotion song for the movie.
The track made its debut online alongside its official music video.
The 25-year-old singer became involved with several projects such as “I Am Witness” and “The Great Wall” after the box office success of his Chinese movie, “Miss Granny“. He also recorded the 2022 Winter Olympics theme song with Chinese singer-songwriter David Tao (陶喆).
Earlier in July this year, he went back into the recording studio to work on his new mini album titled “Reloaded (重启)”. The album, which was released on 14th September, marked his first comeback as a solo artiste since withdrawing from EXO.
For his latest project, Luhan contributed his sweet vocals to the official promotion song for “Kung Fu Panda 3”.
The song starts off like a soft ballad before a bright and rhythmic beat transforms it into an upbeat, pop song. Several footage of the film were also featured in the music video, offering fans a glimpse at the upcoming American-Chinese computer-animated action comedy martial arts film. Luhan also starred in the music video to show off his dance moves with a group of backup dancers.
