Butterfly (Chinese: 花蝴蝶) is the tenth studio album by Taiwanese singer Jolin Tsai (Chinese: 蔡依林). It was released on March 27, 2009, by Warner Music Taiwan.[1] The anticipated follow-up to her 2007 studio album Agent J was her first record after signing with Warner in December 2008.[2] In March 2009, the music video of the lead single, "Real Man", premiered on the Asia's largest LED-screen of the time in Beijing.[3] Always reinventing the visual style of her music, Tsai employed some stunning ballet routines in the music video of the titular dance anthem, "Butterfly".[4] Although critics reacted negatively and commented the album a "confusing patchwork",[5] the album was a commercial success. The album has sold more than 1 million copies sold in Asia,[6] with more than 190,000 copies sold in Taiwan alone,[7] and became the best-selling album of the year in Taiwan.[7] The title track, "Butterfly", reached number 10 on the Hit FM Annual Top 100 Singles.[8] The lead single, "Real Man", reached number 25 on the chart.[9]
