In high school, Tsai and her friends formed her first band, Twister, for which she sang.[12] Tsai first started her singing career by taking part in an MTV singing competition at the age of 18. It was just supposed to be a record of an extracurricular activity she performed in order to help her apply for colleges. She accidentally won the champion in the competition with her rendition of Whitney Houston's No. 1 hit "Greatest Love of All" in the final round.[13] In March 1999, she was signed to Universal Music.[14]

Artistry[edit]

Musical style[edit]

Tsai's music has been the subject of much analysis and scrutiny.[118] Grant concluded that having established herself as the queen of C-pop, Tsai did not stop there, but continued re-inventing and popularizing dance music in Chinese-speaking countries.[119] Before emerging as a dance-pop star, Tsai has spent her early years in teen pop.[120] Since her debut album 1019 (1999), Tsai was promoted as "Teenage Boy Killer" and had a dedicated teenage fanbase, and she was credited as the teenage pop idol in Taiwan's pop mainstream industry.[121] Her fifth album, Magic (2003), reveals several trends that have continued to define her success.[122] Tsai began as a dance-pop diva, in an era that did not have many such ethnic Chinese artists to speak of, and she had a huge role in popularizing dance music as mainstream music in Chinese-speaking countries.[119] Tsai continued to work with several dance-pop producers for Castle (2004) and J-game (2005). Both albums incorporated disco, britpop, and hip hop music.[123] Her mature artistic statement was visible in Dancing Diva (2006), which incorporated different genres of music, including D&B, eurodance and reggae music.[124] Since Butterfly (2009), Tsai has explored and heavily incorporated the genre of electronic dance music in her albums, as well as influences of progressive house, techno and trance music which are most present in Myself (2010) and Muse (2012).[125] She has also experimented with genres such as dubstep and trap music in Play (2014).[125]

Vocals[edit]

Tsai possesses a mezzo-soprano vocal range. Tsai began her singing career by taking part in an MTV singing competition, and she won the champion in the competition with her rendition of Whitney Houston's No. 1 hit "Greatest Love of All" in the final round.[13] Tsai has been criticized in her early years for her vocal ability due to her narrow vocal range, though she won the top prize in singing competition.[126][127][128] Wang Chih-ping, producer of Magic (2003), highlighted her tone and timbre as distinctive, despite he claimed "she does not have a gifted vocals."[129][130] In 2007, her album Dancing Diva (2006) helped Tsai won a Golden Melody Award for Best Mandarin Female Singer, and it was the first time that her vocals was recognized by the most professional music awards in Greater China.[131] Sam Chen, president of Warner Music Taiwan, commented she is "not a born vocalist but studied with vocal coaches."[132] During the recording of Agent J (2007) and Play (2014), Tsai took vocal lessons, which increased her range further.[133][134] Chung Chen-hu, producer of Play, praised her range and power.[135] Other critics such as Chen Le-jung commented she is "being able to sing long and vocal runs effortlessly".[136] However, her album Play failed to make her nominate for Best Mandarin Female Singer at the 26th Golden Melody Awards raised public concerns about her vocals again, and the judges doubted her overuse of Auto-Tune in the album, though her label and some critics objected the statement.[137]

Influences[edit]

Tsai has cited her major influences in her career as being Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Destiny's Child, and Madonna. She cited Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey her "two favorite artists" whom she would often sing along to in her childhood; Mariah Carey's "Hero" and Whitney Houston's "Greatest Love of All" were songs she sang in singing competition and helped she won the champion. Tsai also cited Destiny's Child major influence in her early music career, and she praised their powerful vocals and dance.[138][139] Since Dancing Diva (2006), Tsai has drawn comparisons to Madonna in terms of stage presence. According to Tsai: "I have been a huge fan of Madonna. She's the person I've looked up to. I would like to be a star like her."[140][141] Tsai's choreographer Chang Sheng-feng said she took time to watch Madonna's performance. Tsai described that "Madonna's every single dance move was powerful, and that's the stage performing style I'd look up to." During her J1 World Tour (2004–06), Tsai appeared onstage on a rising platform and struck yoga poses, which was just inspired by Madonna's yoga performance during her Re-Invention World Tour;[142] The music video of "Honey Trap" from Myself (2010) featured voguing in tribute to Madonna.[143] Madonna brought dance music into massive popularity in mainstream music scene, and it's similar to what Tsai would like to do within Greater China. According to Tsai: "Pop singer should challenge pre-existing concepts and lead audience to accept new genres of music; Madonna's works were controversial and somewhat critically panned when those were just releasing , but after years they were considered masterpieces."[143][144] Tsai has also named Janet Jackson, Kylie Minogue, Sandy Lam, Faye Wong, Coco Lee, and A-mei as sources of inspiration.[145][146][147][148][149]

Public image[edit]

Known for reinventing her style and image, Tsai's sex appeal and fashion sense are noted by the public and media.[150] Though she was modest in her early appearance, Tsai uses different fashion styles to work with her music while performing since the release of her fifth studio album Magic.[151] In 2003, Japanese magazine Ray named her "Taiwan's trend-setter".[152] However, around the time of the release of her fifth studio album Magic (2003), some critics felt that Tsai's styling, hair, and make-up were too similar to those of Japanese singer Ayumi Hamasaki. In an public interview, Tsai spoke about comparisons to Ayumi Hamasaki: "I feel honored to be compared with her, I think we both have similar fashion sense; Fashion is a prevailing trend in the style in which a person dresses, but there is nothing to do with copy."[153] In 2006, Tsai won an MTV Asia Award for The Style Award. At the same year, Yahoo! Taiwan labelled her "the most fashionable artist".[154] Tsai is considered a sex symbol. In 2006, FHM Taiwan ranked Tsai first on their "100 Sexiest Women in the World", and she was ranked among the top 10 seven times over next nine years. In 2016, FHM placed Tsai first on the list again.[155]

Tsai was considered a "product" in the Chinese pop music industry, she obeyed almost all the arrangement of companies for commercial purposes in her early career, and she indeed acquired an abundant commercial benefit.[156] Since the release of Magic (2003), each of her studio albums became the best-selling album by female artist of the year in Taiwan, and Dancing Diva (2006), Agent J (2007), and Butterfly (2009) became the best-selling albums of those years in Taiwan respectively.[157][158] In 2010, Forbes China began reporting on earnings of Chinese celebrities born in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and abroad. In 2010, Forbes ranked Tsai seventh on their "Forbes China Celebrity 100" list with earnings of NT$222 million, making her the highest-paid Chinese female singer.[159] She subsequently ranked fifteenth and seventh on the 2011 and 2012 lists with NT$262 million and NT$397 million respectively, making her the second highest-paid Chinese female singer of the two years.[160][161] In 2013 and 2014, she respectively ranked ninth and twentieth on the lists with NT$478 million and NT$260 million, making her the highest-paid Chinese female singer of the two years.[162][163] She also ranked sixteenth on the 2015 list with NT$252 million, making her the second highest-paid Chinese female singer.[164] As of 2014, Tsai's net worth is NT$2 billion.[165]

Having a dedicated fanbase mostly composed by female and gay, Tsai is considered a Gay icon.[166] In 2006, Tsai was named the "gay's favorite singer" by Taiwan's gay club.[167] In 2007, Tsai's song "Bravo Lover" became the theme song of the 2007 Taiwan Pride parade.[168] In 2012, Tsai signed the petition calling for government passing Marriage Equality Act and legalizing same-sex marriage in Taiwan.[169] Tsai's songs "Dr. Jolin", "Fantasy", "Gentlewoman", and "We're All Different, Yet the Same" also cater to her gay audience and support same-sex marriage.[169] Recognized as a long-term ally of the LGBT community, Tsai was given the Icon Award at the 2nd Asia LGBT Milestone Awards, praising her putting aside the pressure of public opinion and using her influence to support same-sex marriage.[170] In 2015, Tsai featured on the cover of lesbian-themed magazine Lezs. In the interview with Lezs, Tsai spoke out against Homophobia and embraced same-sex love.[169] During her Play World Tour (2015–16), Tsai spoke against the bullying of children and teenagers in general, including the bullying of gay teens.[171]

Achievements[edit]

Tsai has sold more than 23 million albums in Asia, and she is recognized as one of the best-selling artists in Taiwan.[7] Due to the adverse impact from the copyright infringement and Internet downloads in the Greater China region since the 21st century, Chinese recording artists experience losses and low sales.
