Wong began recording when she was a high-school student in China, releasing six albums during these years, including many cover versions of hits by Teresa Teng. In 1989, she began her official recording career in Hong Kong with Cinepoly Records. They gave her the stage name Wong Jing Man along with an English pseudonym, Shirley Wong, which was the title of her debut album. In 1997 she signed a 5-album recording contract with EMI. Cinepoly held one final set of recordings for another album but released these in stages on two EPs and on compilation albums, sometimes in competition with new studio releases from EMI. To date, Wong's official record companies have released more than two dozen compilations.
Many albums only have official titles in Chinese, and varying translations for some album and song names appear in the media.
2 bonus tracks: Mandarin version of "Fragile Woman" and "Forgetting You Is Like Forgetting Me"
