黑髮尤物 Black-Haired Beautiful Girl - 蔡依林 Jolin Tsai


Song: Black-Haired Beautiful Girl ( 黑髮尤物 Hei Fa You Wu )

(This is one of the hardest Jolin's songs to translate, following "Bravo Lover". The meaning of the lyrics came as a surprise to me while I was translating and reading up further on what the idioms and phrases meant. And I was lost couple of times in the MV when I was matching the MV lyrics to mine for checking; that's how mesmerising the MV is, that's how mesmerising our "Black-Haired Beautiful Girl" is.

Enjoy!

Ps: This is a Christmas present for my friend Linoa, a Jolin fan from France!)
