In just a year, she has amassed a massive following, thanks to her decade-long experience of performing on stage.

Emei’s journey began long before she started writing music. She developed an incredible stage presence while competing on Chinese Idol, where she secured a third place through months of stadium shows. Eventually, she started releasing her own music on Chinese platforms and even performed on Dancing with the Stars of China. When the pandemic hit, Emei shifted her focus to American platforms, where she quickly gained attention from media outlets like Wonderland, Earmilk, Ones to Watch, Consequence, and Lyrical Lemonade.
Emei’s debut single, “Late to the Party,” exploded in popularity, amassing 6 million streams after videos of her performing the song live garnered a collective 10 million views on Tiktok and Instagram Reels. Her success only continued to grow from there. She’s been featured on the cover of Salt and Fresh Finds Pop, and her music has been playlisted on numerous popular platforms like New Music Friday, Big on the Internet, Teen Beats, Pop Sauce, Young & Free, and more.
Emei’s debut EP, End of an Era, was released in October of last year and has already racked up over 10 million streams. And now, in 2023, Emei is set to release her sophomore EP, which is already generating buzz. The leaks from the upcoming EP have captured the attention of fans and critics alike, with the first single from the EP, “Scatterbrain,” amassing over 3 million views in just the past 7 days. With this kind of momentum, 2023 is shaping up to be a breakout year for Emei, and we can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next.
