My Pride (Chinese: 我的驕傲) is an album recorded by Cantopop singer Joey Yung, released in 2003. "My Pride" was Yung's fifth studio recorded album and garnered Yung with the "Most Popular Female Singer" award for that year.[1] The title song, "My Pride," was a cover of Fiona Fung's English song, "Proud of You"[2] and was named one of the greatest Cantonese songs of all time.[3]

Title song[edit]

The title song of the album "My Pride" was originally an English commercial song "Proud of You" by another Cantopop artist, Fiona Fung in 2003. Joey Yung was then requisitioned to record the commercial in Mandarin and later recorded the full song in Cantonese. Shortly after, Yung released a Mandarin version of "My Pride" titled "Girl Fluttering Her Wings" (揮著翅膀的女孩). The song has earned more than 50 awards in the United States, Canada, Hong Kong, China and Taiwan.[4] In 2010, "My Pride" was covered by Hong Kong a cappella group Metro Vocal Group in their album Music for a Metropolis.[5]
