Jay Chou has sure been busy.
Besides acting in the caper thriller film “Now You See Me 2“, the singer has been hard at work in the studio preparing for his upcoming album, “Jay Chou’s Bedtime Stories (周杰伦的床边故事)“. As part of the promotions for the album, he has released the music video for “Shouldn’t Be (不该)”, a duet with aboriginal Taiwanese singer aMEI.
The music video tells the story of a man who is trapped in a cryogenic tank on a futuristic spacecraft. All the while, a scientist can be seen conducting experiments on him.
Flashes of Chou and aMEI crooning their heart out in the spaceship are then interspersed with flashback scenes of the man with his significant other during happier times. They are shown to be spending time together in a snow-filled place and cozy home, purely enjoying each other’s presence.
Things soon turn awry, as the man falls severely sick and decides to walk away from the relationship to save her from heartache. He volunteers himself to be experimented on in order to cure his life-threatening disease.
“Shouldn’t Be (不该)” also features aMEI rocking a pastel purplish hair style, which made her looked formidable yet elegant.
Watch the video here:
“Shouldn’t Be (不该)” will be included in Chou’s 14th studio album, “Jay Chou’s Bedtime Stories (周杰伦的床边故事)”, which will be released on 24th June. The album will come in 3 editions, the regular version, Deluxe Package version, and USB version. It is also available for pre-order until 23rd June.
Meanwhile, the multi-talented star can be seen in “Now You See Me 2“, which premiered in cinemas nationwide yesterday (16th June).
