Dancing Diva (Chinese: 舞孃) is the eighth studio album by Taiwanese singer Jolin Tsai. It was released on 12 May 2006, by Capitol Music Taiwan. Emboldened by her success, Tsai signed a recording deal with Capitol where she immediately began working on her next release in February 2006.[1] In May 2006, Tsai debuted the title track, "Dancing Diva", at the MTV Asia Awards 2006, and sparked controversy for the dance moves of rhythmic gymnastics during performing the song.[2] The sexually-charged album exceeded all expectations by selling more than 2.5 millions copies in Asia,[3] with more than 260,000 copies sold in Taiwan alone,[4] and became the best-selling album of the year in Taiwan.[4] The fourth track, "Pretence", reached number 3 on the Hit FM Top 100 Singles of the Year.[5] The title track, "Dancing Diva", reached number 14 on the chart.[5] The third track, "A Wonder in Madrid", reached number 33 on the chart.[5] The album earned Tsai two Golden Melody Award nominations for Best Mandarin Album and Best Mandarin Female Singer, and she finally won for Best Mandarin Female Singer and Most Popular Female Singer (popular vote).[6]
