Favorite Mandopop Songs, 2020

40 of the year’s favorite in Mandopop

Out of all the scenes of music I will list my favorites for, Mandopop is the one I am clueless about. I have no grasp on the narratives of that scene nor do I have any context on these artists. Honestly, I just kept on clicking on music videos on YouTube, and the algorithms gave me more of where they came from; I saved a good enough amount of the results throughout the year to make this plentiful list. All I can really tell you about these songs is that they sound good one way or another — and hey, that’s been enough for me to keep checking the music out.

The list is in alphabetical order. If I had to choose a number one, it would be anything Julia Wu has done this year — she has not missed. My runner-ups are RĒD°芮德 and Sabrina Lo, who both make more low-key R&B.
