Stranger In The North ）by Namewee (黃明志) featuring Wang Leehom (王力宏)
This collab between Chinese Malaysian singer Namewee and Taiwanese American singer Wang Leehom has been doing very well on youtube though it has garnered less attention within China where youtube is banned.
It describes the trials and tribulations of migrants in Beijing (called 北漂 “northwards drifters” in China). I’m not sure if it is just about Namewee’s personal experience as diaspora in Beijing (the coconut trees seem to refer to tropical Malaysia) or also about Chinese internal migrants? What do you think?
Anyway, if you’re diasporic Chinese/Taiwanese, I highly recommend this song as it is by two diaspora singers! I found it very moving. Click on the button for English subs.
