Beijing Welcomes You (simplified Chinese: 北京欢迎你; traditional Chinese: 北京歡迎你; pinyin: Běijīng huānyíng nǐ) is a feature song for the 100-day countdown of the 2008 Summer Olympics held in Beijing, China. The song comprises one hundred famous artists and entertainers from mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Japan and South Korea.[1] Its music video includes a montage of scenes from all over Beijing. It features the largest contingent of famous artists in a single Chinese-language music video. Its lyrics are composed by Hong Kong lyricist Albert Leung and its music is composed by mainland Chinese lyricist Ke Zhaolei also known as Xiao Ke.

The 5 characters in the original Chinese title of the song ("Bei Jing Huan Ying Ni") were used for the names of the "Fuwa" mascots which symbolized the 2008 Summer Olympics: Bei-Bei: fish, Jing-Jing: giant panda, Huan-Huan: the fire, Ying-Ying: gazelle, and Ni-Ni: swallow.

The song runs over six minutes in length. Since its release the song has been extremely popular with the Chinese public.[1]
