Jane Zhang is a pop megastar in China but her latestsingle breaks the mould of China's pop industry andcould help her become its first global superstar.
She first became a household name in 2005 whenshe finished as the second runner-up in Super Girl.
She made a lasting impression with herimpressive vocal range and was even nicknamedthe "Dolphin Princess" - "dolphin notes" is Chinese slang for being able to hit the high notes.
Although she is yet to make an impact internationally, she regularly performs English-languagetracks and was once even a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
But the music video of her latest single "Dust My Shoulders Off", an upbeat track produced byTimbaland, may help her get one step closer to her dream of international stardom.
不过，她的最新歌曲《Dust My Shoulders Off》的MV也许能够让她离成为国际巨星的梦想更近一步（这首欢快的歌曲由Timbaland操刀）。
Its success will be critical for Zhang, being the first single from her first English-languagealbum, scheduled for release in April. It has had more than 5.8 million views on YouTube andthe single reached top five in the iTunes chart, a first for a Chinese artist.
"I am a Chinese singer, but this song targets the English-speaking audience. The video needs tobe about something that people across different cultures can understand," Zhang told the BBC.
"Historically, it's been really difficult for international artists to make a global impact," saidMark Mulligan, a music industry analyst with media consultancy firm Midia.
He points out that streaming eased access for international artists who sing in English - someSwedish musicians found success like this. But there is a downside.
"It makes everybody essentially just look like American-style artists," he added.
