2nd EP called 毒苹果 Fearless ! Release date November 9th.
https://itunes.apple.com/hk/album/那一夜-single/1438724940?l=zh

Tracklist
1. 那一夜 Woke*
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4VEw_Mf15qY
2. 毒苹果 Fearless*
3. çªç„¶ä¹‹é—´ Unexpectedly*
 
*Official English title
 
Concept
 

Lost, controlled, missed, resentful... Maybe love and desire are poisons, hidden in sweet apples. Everything is beautiful when intoxicated by the sweetness of love, but when love is overdue, it is just a "poisonous apple"...
 
She once yearned for a beautiful fairytale, and now she has built her own fairytale kingdom with her own experience. The apple should be swallowed or spit, and her fairytale continues...
 
This all-new new EP "Poisonous Apple" is her declaration to the world, no fear, no missing, she is ready to take charge of herself and everything.

Wonder when G.E.M will drop her WOKE MV. It got delayed due to production issues. Some special effects wasn't complete apparently.

Never in a million years would I imagine performing my original song in NASA and in CHINESE!!! I’m truly humbled to attend and perform at @Breakthrough Prize (Oscars of Life Sciences) in USA to honor scientists in life sciences whom have made major impacts to the World. Slightly nervous because the legendary @LionelRichie would be the only other performer of the evening!!! Also, I love the movie James Bond 007 so much and I can’t believe @piercebrosnanofficial will be the one to intro me to the audience! SUPER EXCITED! Catch the event live as it will be televised on @natgeo in USA and also live streamed on Facebook and YouTube on Mon, Nov 5, 11am Beijing Time / Sun, Nov 4th, 7pm USA PST. Can you guess what song I will be performing? #eastmeetswest#breakthrough #breakboundaries#trulyexcited #neverinamillionyears

The most important thing to take away from this is that GEM was introduced by the best James Bond.

3rd EP cover and concept

1. 岩石裡的花 Love Finds A Way*
2. WHY
3. ç¡çš‡åŽ Queen G*

*Official English title

 

Final Chapter - Sleeping Queen

Ten years ago, she wrote ç¡å…¬ä¸» Sleeping Princess.
At that time, she believed that there was perfect love in the fairy tale world.
Ten years later, she released Sleeping Queen.
At this time she believes she can dominate the story.

GEM, who has not released Cantonese songs for a long time, pays tribute to the heart of Sleeping Queen.
In the past ten years, the reality urged GEM to awaken from the most beautiful shackles.
She experienced loss. Now she regains her original pure courage.
Fear and confusion, the sleeping princess of that year, has grown calmly into a brave and courageous queen ten years later.

In the real world, there is no fairytale, but there is no one who is willing to believe. G.E.M.’s fairytale trilogy begins with “another fairytale†and ends with “sleeping queenâ€. The queen will build her kingdom with her self-confidence and continue her fairytale!

G.E.M posted a long message on weibo and her Instagram stories explaining that she is suing Hummingbird, her management company and HK record label since her debut, to end her contract.

 

The short version (in her words) is that they have had disagreements for some time regarding endorsements and jobs that her management has allegedly accepted on her behalf without her consent.

 

While G.E.M thought they could come to an amicable agreement, she was continually frustrated by their actions.

 

After watching a scene in the movie Green Book, she was inspired to take a stand. Now she feels the only way out of the situation is to try and end the contract through the court.

 

Here is the link to her weibo post https://m.weibo.cn/status/4347331983830041

 

And here is a news story with a translation of her post in full. https://www.jaynestars.com/news/g-e-m-requests-for-contract-termination-from-management-agency/

 

An interesting part about this for me is that her main creative partner Lupo Groinig is one of the founders of Hummingbird. He has been one of key collaborators on almost all of her songs throughout every album and EP. She doesn't mention him in the post, but unless he is not involved in these decisions and leaves hummingbird to continue working with her, it could be the start of a new era for her musically.

Hummingbird have replied with their own statement: https://m.weibo.cn/detail/4347554084666326

 

They deny any wrong doing on their behalf and signalling that they wished to resolve the issues amicably but now they expect it to go through the court. They confirm that their current contract with G.E.M runs until 2022.

 

The statement also says they expect the current world tour dates to be fulfilled, which is in line with G.E.M's statement.

Possibly her last release in association with Hummingbird. I wonder if her fans groups will support it considering all the drama going on..

 

I'm personally a little torn but mainly because I didn't enjoy the EPs by themselves. However it may come across better for me as a long form release sicne I hate the soundbite nature of short EPs.

 

Also, it doesn't have that one standout track to entice me and the cover is pretty basic but since I have all her other physical releases it would feel weird to be missing this one.

 

Will you be buying it @Linoa62 ?
