My Love

To Hebe is the debut Mandarin solo studio album of Taiwanese Mandopop artist Hebe Tien, of girl group S.H.E. It was released on 3 September 2010 by HIM International Music. [1] Tien is the first S.H.E member to release a solo album. The preorder edition contains a bonus DVD with eight tracks from Tien's 27th birthday party charity concert, "330 Music Tien Birthday Party" held on 20 March 2010. [2]


The tracks, "寂寞寂寞就好" (Leave Me Alone) and "LOVE!" are listed at number 11 and 35 respectively on Hit Fm Taiwan's Hit Fm Annual Top 100 Singles Chart (Hit-Fm年度百首單曲) for 2010. [3] The album is tied fifth best selling album in Taiwan in 2010, with Rainie Yang's Rainie & Love...? , with 50,000 copies sold. [4]

The album was also nominated for Best Mandarin Album at the 22nd Golden Melody Awards in 2011. [5] It won Best Music Video for "寂寞寂寞就好" (Leave Me Alone) directed by Hsu Yun-Hsuan (徐筠軒) and Best Single Producer for "LOVE!". [6]

Background and development

Hebe Tien launched her career through the Taiwanese girl group S.H.E under HIM International Music along with her group mates Selina and Ella. On September 11, 2001, during the September 11 attacks, S.H.E released their debut album, Girls Dorm , in memory of their prior living quarters, selling an impressive 150,000 copies for a debut group quashing speculations of unremarkable debut due to the incident. [7] Since debut, S.H.E has released twelve studio albums and received numerous awards and nominations. Tien has since appeared in Taiwanese dramas and has been featured in a few singles. The group's label acknowledged each of the member's strengths and for Tien who loved singing since her childhood, HIM arranged and planned a solo album for her which was in preparation for two years.

Tien intended to release an album where she can sing diverse musical genres that are different from the music of S.H.E. Therefore, she named her album To Hebe as a personal album to show "the girl who loves to sing" and to sing songs she would sing for herself, and to share her different moods to everyone. [8]


"Small Island" controversy

Almost twelve years after the release of the album, and following the critical reaction of the People's Republic of China (PRC) to the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan, various Chinese music streaming platforms such as Migu Music and QQ Music removed the track "Small Island" from their streaming service, with the former removing all of Tien's work and her artist information from the platform entirely. According to Little Pinks, the lyrics, "I think that this distance is good, we don't bother each other across the sea," hints about Taiwan independence. The line, "I am a small island, I can't handle great troubles. Tourists, please come back early next time," was also assumed to mean that Mainland tourists are not welcome to visit Taiwan. [9]
