    CareerTsai's foray into the entertainment industry started with an MTV singing competition. She was signed on by Universal Music and released her first album Jolin 1019. Her second album Don't Stop was also a success. Tsai's music career came to a halt when conflicts between her and music company surfaced. Tsai signed on with Sony Music Entertainment (Taiwan).

    Tsai's success as a singer continued with the release of her 3rd album, 'Castle. Tsai's J1 World Tour included countries across Asia and North America. In that same year, Tsai released J-Game, which sold over 1 million copies in Asia in the span of one month.

    In 2006, Tsai left Sony Music Entertainment (Taiwan), and joined EMI Music Taiwan's label Capitol Records(Taiwan). Her 8th album, Dancing Diva, proved more successful than the previous albums. Tsai's Dancing Forever Tour featured a dance performance. The tour spanned across Asia, North America and Australia. In 2005, Tsai won the Golden Melody Award for Best Mandarin Female Singer Award for her album Dancing Forever Tour

    In 2008, Tsai released her first English cover album Love Exercise. The sales for this album was lower than expected due to minimal publicity efforts. Tsai ended her contract with EMI Music Taiwan in 2008.

    Tsai re-signed her contract with Warner Music Taiwan and released her 10th album, "Butterfly". "Butterfly" was her most successful album to date.

    In 2010, Tsai released Myself. The music video features a style of house dance called Vogue. Tsai's December 2010 'Myself World Tour' sold out quickly. The concert, which features Tsai performing dangerous stunts in mid-air, was choreographed by Benny Ninja.

    In 2011, Tsai will continue her world tour in May, which spanned across Asia.

    Tsai was named the top 2nd earner among Taiwanese Singers in a 2010 poll, with earnings of US$14.51 million that year.[2]

    [edit] Early lifeThough Tsai was introverted and shy as a child, she intensively studied English during her youth and eventually majored in English Literature at Fu Jen Catholic University. During her childhood years, Tsai developed an interest in singing and experimented with different vocal techniques after listening to the songs of popular female singers such as Teresa Teng and Faye Wong.

    [edit] Acting careerDuring the two years she faced conflict with her recording company before signing with Sony Music Entertainment (Taiwan), she pursued an acting career. She debuted in a popular soap series called "HI,上班女郎" with actor Show Luo. The series, about a female worker enduring the taboos of dating her own superior in the office, became a huge hit that allowed Tsai's fans to follow her amidst her hold on singing. Since her acting debut, Jolin Tsai continues to pursue her acting career by filming music videos on the side. In an interview, she stated that after her music career is over, she hopes to make movies full time, learn more about filming, and act in movies.

    [edit] Universal Music Taiwan (1998–2001)Tsai first started out by taking part in an MTV singing competition at the age of 18. She won the top prize at the competition with her rendition of Whitney Houston's #1 hit "Greatest Love of All". She was then signed by Universal Music.

    On July 1999, her first single "Living With the World" (和世界做鄰居) was released. It was sold in convenience stores and was a tremendous success,[3] which led to the release of her first album, Jolin 1019, on September 1999. At that time, she was packaged as "The Girl Next Door," and was an instant hit with teenagers, earning her the title "Teenage Boy Killer". Jolin 1019 ended up selling more than 400,000 copies in Asia. With the success of her first album, she released her anticipated second album in May 2000, Don't Stop. Many of the hits from that album were well known throughout Asia and the album was also a tremendous success.[citation needed] She also released her first photobook with pictures mainly taken in Hawaii.

    Tsai's image changed for her third album, Show Your Love. Nearing the age of 21, she released an album that was much more mature and soothing. However, the album did not sell as well as her last two albums. Her fourth album, Lucky Number, was not able to bring her back to the same level of popularity either. The following year, due to conflicts with her record company, Tsai did not release any albums. She did, however, release her second photo book, with photos taken in Thailand. At the end of 2001, Tsai's contract with Universal Music ended and her first greatest hits compilation, Together was released.

    [edit] Sony Music Entertainment (Taiwan) (2002–2006)Tsai signed with Sony Music Entertainment (Taiwan) that year and got the biggest break of her whole career. The first single released was the track "Spirit Of The Knight" (騎士精神), which became a big hit and led to the highly anticipated release of her album Magic (看我72變). The album turned out to be a smashing success, topping the Taiwan album charts for three full months and selling more than 300,000 copies in Taiwan alone. The album has sold over a million copies in Asia.[4] The album boasted many of her most well-known singles, including the hit dance song that brought Tsai back to the top of the charts "See My 72 Changes" (看我72變), a song which has been suggested to have been named after The Monkey King's 72 transformations.[5] Other songs from the album, such as the extremely popular "Say Love You" (說愛你) and several others, including the hit "Prague Square" (布拉格廣場) were penned by fellow Taiwan mega star Jay Chou (周杰倫). The new image she presented for this album was more playful and sexy than before and her music became more dance-oriented. This transformation gave her what she needed to make a comeback to the music scene after being gone for almost a year.

    Tsai's sixth album, Castle (城堡), was just as popular as its predecessor and became a top album in many Asian countries.[citation needed] Just as with Magic, many songs on this album were written by Chou, her rumored boyfriend at that time. Two of these songs, the cute and playful "It's Love" (就是愛) and the moving rock ballad "Rewind" (倒帶), became two of Tsai's biggest hits. Prior to the album's release, she showcased her single "Pirates" (海盜), another song composed by Chou, at a mini-concert. She subsequently filmed one of the most expensive music videos in Taiwanese history for the song.[citation needed] This album also featured many other hit songs including the main upbeat dance track "36 Tricks of Love" (愛情36計), the sad love ballads "The Smell of Lemon Grass" (檸檬草的味道) and "Disappearing Castle" (消失的城堡), and "Love Love Love" (Love Love Love), a Mandarin cover of the Ukrainian song "Stop Stop Stop" by Nu Virgos. Tsai also wrote the lyrics to the song "The Starter" (始作俑者).

    Between Castle and her next studio album, Tsai released a CD of remixes called J9 New + Party Collection. This remix album featured two new songs including the hit song "Signature Pose" and remixes of Tsai's most popular dance songs. A medley of her dance hits was also included on the album. In 2003, Tsai sang the Mandarin version of "Mirage (Warriors In Peace)", the theme song for the film Warriors of Heaven and Earth.

    On April 25, 2005, Tsai seventh album J-Game was released, also topping charts throughout Asia and raised her popularity in Hong Kong, China, Malaysia, and Singapore. Not only did the album become the longest running album on the Taiwanese album charts in 2005, it also sold over 1 million copies throughout Asia in just a little over a month.[6] The album featured many more hip-hop influenced tracks than before, though it retained the dance pop and love ballads that made her famous. Though she supposedly broke up with Chou around the time the album was recorded, Tsai was able to find many other writers and producers for this album, including another huge pop star, Leehom Wang. One of the songs he penned for Tsai, "Exclusive Myth" (獨佔神話), was included on the album. The first single of the album "Barbaric Game" (野蠻遊戲) was a huge hit across Asia and it was followed by several other strong singles including "The Greek Girl Next To The Wishing Pond" (許願池的希臘少女) (composed by rising Hong Kong singer Ivana Wong), "Sky" (天空), "Repeat Signs" (反覆記號), "I Really Miss You" (好想你) and "Eyes Half Shut" (睜一隻眼 閉一隻眼). The music video of the latter song presented a much sexier image of Tsai than ever seen before. During this time, Tsai also rapped in a duet with fellow artist Show Luo called "真命天子" [Destined Guy], which was featured on his album Hypnosis Show. She also appear with Show in his first solo concert at the Taipei Arena, performing "真命天子" [Destined Guy].

    Late in 2005, Tsai released her J1 Live Concert DVD, featuring performances from a concert in Taipei in late 2004. Her hits from her albums Magic (看我72變) and Castle were performed. Show Luo made a guest appearance in the performance of "Prove It". The concert also had a guest appearance by Jay Chou, in which he danced together with Tsai, however this portion was not included in the DVD. It was later placed in the DVD for her greatest hits compilation, J-Top.

    In early 2006, it was announced that Tsai would be leaving Sony Music Entertainment (Taiwan), the record company that helped elevate her to superstar status, and joining Capitol Music Taiwan, which released under the name of EMI Music Taiwan.[7] Since her debut and through her years, Tsai had progressed in becoming an excellent dancer and performer. To prepare for her new album, Tsai worked very hard to perfect her dancing and change up her style yet again. This was evident at the 2006 MTV Asia Awards where she performed her hot new single "Dancing Diva".(舞孃). with elements of yoga and using various props including a ball and a ribbon. She also won the Style Award during the ceremony, demonstrating the influence she has in Asia.[8]

    In May 2006, Sony released a greatest hits compilation album called J-Top, which included two CDs and a DVD with new and previously unreleased music videos and a 70 minute documentary on Tsai's time at Sony. The compilation featured many of the best songs from the albums she released under Sony. There were two new songs included on the album, one of which featured a music video where Tsai looks back on all her old music videos.
