Hua Chenyu is the champion of Hunan TV’s Singer 2020 who has won many other awards. OUR STREET STYLE

中文 英文 双语

Nicknamed “Weirdo” and “Brother from Mars”, Chinese singer Hua Chenyu has shown that he is a force to be reckoned with.
外号“怪人”、“火星哥”的中国歌手华晨宇展现了自身不可忽视的力量。

After winning the Best Asian Artist award at the 2016 Mnet Asian Music Awards, the 30-year-old singer has had a growing list of awards.
自获得亚洲新歌榜2016年度盛典最佳男歌手奖以来,这位30岁的歌手收获的奖项也越来越多。

On April 25, Hua grabbed the champion of Hunan TV’s Singer 2020. He became the first post-90s generation winner and the youngest champion of the yearly competition, which has been held for four years.
4月25日,华晨宇成为湖南卫视综艺节目《歌手·当打之年》的冠军。他是该年度比赛举办四年来的首位90后、也是最年轻的冠军。

In the final episode of Singer 2020, Hua sang his original song Seven Personalities. In this song, Hua used seven vocals to show seven different lives, namely the innocent, brutal, reasonable, self-asserted, romantic, pessimistic and crazy lives. This song quickly went viral on the internet.
在《歌手·当打之年》的最后一期节目中,华晨宇演唱了自己的原创歌曲《哥谭》。歌曲中,华晨宇使用了7种音色来表现7种不同人格:童真、残忍、理性、自我肯定、浪漫、悲观、癫狂。这首歌很快便在网上爆火。

Unlike other singers of his generation who typically approach music by evoking romance, Hua expressed a unique perspective. When he took part in Hunan TV’s singing competition show Super Boy in 2013, Hua performed an original song that had no lyrics. In Why Nobody Fights, a song from his debut album Quasimodo’s Gift, he repeatedly sang the words “why nobody fights” over different melodies.
与同时代大多数唱情歌的歌手不同,华晨宇展现的是一个独特的视角。在参加2013年湖南卫视歌唱选秀节目《快乐男声》时,华晨宇就演唱了一首没有歌词的原创歌曲。华晨宇的首张专辑《卡西莫多的礼物》中收录了一首名为《Why nobody fights》的歌曲,歌中,他用不同的旋律反复唱着“Why nobody fights”这句话。

For Hua, popularity is not the priority; rather, he prefers that his music be considered less mainstream.
对于华晨宇而言,流量并不是第一位的,他更希望自己的音乐小众一点。

“If one day, my song is sung by everybody on the streets, I might no longer want to sing it any more,” Hua said on the talk show Feichang Dao on iFeng. “I want to experience something fresh, and would be happy if people can accept different music styles. This would motivate me to produce better music, more fun things and let [audiences] experience something new.”
“如果我的歌有一天,就是它变得满大街的人都在唱的时候,可能我就不想唱了。”华晨宇在凤凰网访谈节目《非常道》中如此说道。“我是觉得我会想要玩一些新鲜的东西。就是如果大家都接受了这一种风格,我会很开心。这样我就会激励自己再做出更棒更好玩的东西,让观众能够听到更多不一样的音乐。”

Hua’s talent and courage have, no doubt, helped him become “one of the most influential young [singers] in China”, noted China Youth Daily.
《中国青年报》指出,毫无疑问,华晨宇的才华与勇气令其成为“中国最具影响力的青年歌手之一”。
