Only For You cover

Only for You (Chinese: 獨一無二; pinyin: dú yī wú èr) is Taiwanese Mandopop artist Show Luo's (Chinese: 羅志祥) eighth Mandarin studio album. It was released on 18 February 2011 by Gold Typhoon (Taiwan).[1] The album was available for preorder from 28 January 2011 in two limited editions, of 30,000 copies each with serial numbers and photobook: Only For You (Gentry Love Edition) (獨一無二 紳情款款版) and Only For You (Flower World Edition) (獨一無二 花花仕界版). For the first time the first lead track is a ballad "拼什麼" (What Am I Fighting For?).[2]

A further two editions were released by Gold Typhoon: Only for You (10001st Night Celebration Edition) (2CD) on 18 March 2011 with two new tracks and Only for You (MV Collectable Edition) (CD+DVD) on 6 May 2011 with nine music videos and photobook. The Japanese edition, Only for You (Japanese Edition) was released on 20 July 2011 by Pony Canyon, which included a special bonus track of the Japanese version of title track "獨一無二" (Only You) and a DVD with 10 music videos.[3]

Album[edit]

The album was marketed with the "拼什麼" (What Am I Fighting For) track, which was rather unconventional, as he often markets an album through a dance piece. The music video for the second lead track "獨一無二" (Only You) was released nine days later. The video consists of dance piece choreographed by Shaun Evaristo. It was reported to have costed NT$5 million to create European scenery and to debut the "Anti-Gravity filming technique".[4]

Reception[edit]

The album debuted at number one on Taiwan's G-Music Top 20 Weekly Mandarin and Combo Charts, and Five Music Chart at week 8 (18 to 24 February 2011) with a percentage sales of 74.6%,[5] 48.43%[6] and 78.8%[7] respectively. Suppressing fellow artist Jolin Tsai's record at G-Music Mandarin Chart of 68.11% for Butterfly in 2009 and became the highest debut week percentage sales in the chart's seven year history. As of 3 March 2011 the album has sold 103,628 copies.[8]

The tracks, "獨一無二" (Only You) and "拼什麼" (What Am I Fighting For) are listed on the Top 20 Gold Songs of the (January to June) 2011 Global Chinese Golden Chart.[9] The album is the best selling album in Taiwan in 2011, with 150,000 copies sold.[10]
