Choosing the Resort’s Iconic Attractions as the Exclusive Setting for the Video
to Celebrate Their First-Ever Musical Collaboration
MACAU, December 5, 2017 (Tuesday) – Joey Yung and Twins, two of the biggest names in Cantopop over the past two decades, celebrated their first-ever musical collaboration with a three-day video shoot at the Hollywood-themed studio-concept resort Studio City in Macau on December 4-6, 2017. The music video, which will officially launch in January 2018, was filmed exclusively at a selection of Studio City’s most iconic attractions, and marks the first time that Joey Yung has worked with Gillian Chung and Charlene Choi of Twins on a song, despite knowing each other for 20 years.
The storyline of the video for the new song, which is titled ‘All, Hands up and Dance”, sees Joey Yung and Twins falling asleep and passing through a ‘space tunnel’ before arriving at some of Studio City’s most enchanting attractions to dance, sing and celebrate. The locations at which the three artists were filmed performing include Studio City’s hotel lobby, hotel suite, French Garden and The Boulevard shopping precinct. The trio were also filmed enjoying themselves on the Golden Reel, the iconic 130-metre-high figure-eight Ferris wheel that sits between Studio City’s Art Deco-inspired twin hotel towers, and at the resort’s glamorous and stylish nightclub Pacha.
“It’s thrilling that we have finally been able to join together for our first-ever musical collaboration after 20 years,” said Joey Yung. “The three days we spent filming at Studio City were an incredible experience, and it took us all back to some of the amazing times and sweet memories we have shared over the years. This song is a tribute to our 20 years of friendship.”
Gillian Chung and Charlene Choi also expressed their excitement over the long-awaited collaboration. “The most memorable moment of the filming was the party scene at Pacha,” said Gillian Chung. “It felt like we were celebrating at a real party! We danced and sang for the whole night and enjoyed it so much,” added Charlene Choi.
To commemorate the collaboration, all three of the artists added their handprints to the top of the Golden Reel today.
