I Know Everything - Chapter 505
Chapter 505: Prince of love songs.
It was hard to say which song was the most played during the Spring Festival.
But if you were asking which album was the most popular, it would be Guan Yili’s ‘Don’t Fear That I’m Sad’ that was released on Valentine’s day six days after the Chinese New Year.
Chen Huan gave Guan Yili three songs as the main songs and Chen Huan was surprised a bit that Guan Yili chose ‘Don’t Fear That I’m Sad’ as the Album title.
Chen Huan felt that ‘Faith’ should be used as the album’s title, which was both stylish and new so more people would like it.
But Ning Wu told Chen Huan that they wanted a simple and straightforward name as ‘Don’t Fear That I’m Sad’ was like a subconscious tell of ‘Don’t make me sad and quickly buy the album’.
There was a technique like that?
Chen Huan was taken aback.
Ning Wu seemed to be unscrupulous for the sake of more sales.
But it worked out pretty well in the end.
The most eye-catching things to the youngsters were drama, funny, love and pain titles.
Their eyes shined when they saw that title and guessed it must have broken hearted songs.
What was Guan Yili’s nickname?
The Prince of Love Songs!
Wasn’t this smelled like love songs?
Sister Xiaofeng was also the composer so they must show even more support!
There were many fans of Guan Yili and Lu Xiaofeng.
Even kids had hundreds of yuan during the Spring Festival as pocket money, let alone young adults.
People in big cities would feel ashamed if they didn’t have at least a few thousands in their hands at the end of the year.
Buying an album was nothing.
The most impressive were girls as they didn’t even have to spend their own money to buy as the simps would buy it for them.
And they couldn’t buy the online album either as it would be too lowly.
Only the hard copies and a box of chocolate would be up to standard for the Spring Festival.
‘Don’t Fear That I’m Sad’ was also released on Valentine’s Day!
So that day, ‘Don’t Fear That I’m Sad’ and chocolate were selling very well.
‘Don’t Fear That I’m Sad’ sold 1.3 million online copies on the first day, which was twice the amount of the very popular ‘Comeback’.
However, there were less hard copies sales with only 135k copies sold, which was a bit far away from ‘Comeback’.
But the reviews from the fans were very good.
“The Prince of Love Songs really deserves his name, every song is good, especially the three songs Sister Xiaofeng wrote for him, each song is worthy to be put on repeat.”
“It thought it was a joke at the beginning, how could people call Guan Yili the Princes of Love Song with only a single song release, it was so funny! Then I listened to his first album and realized he is really the Prince of Love Songs, each of his love songs is so good!”
“Why is Sister Xiaofeng so nutty? Because he can discern talent! Guan Yili’s androgynous voice is so magical that people wouldn’t be able to forget it after listening to it!”
“I love him! I cried when I listened to ‘Don’t Fear That I’m Sad’! I’m a man and this song seems tailor made for me!”
“I on the contrary think that ‘Your Look’ suits me best because it’s much more refined and Guan Yili’s high pitch is perfectly shown there! He’s the Prince of Love Songs!”
“Right, there are many singers but few of them have peculiar feature and Guan Yili is so special that we will forever remember him~~”
Thousands of youngsters flocked to Guan Yili’s Weibo or the three major music websites ‘Don’t Fear That I’m Sad’ reviews to leave messages about how they feel.
Everyone showed their love for the albums except a few people that especially went to cause troubles.
After Valentine’s Day, the online sales continue to increase the next day with 1.4 million copies sold.
Generally, it was already good for the sales of the album to not dramatically drop after the first day but ‘Don’t Fear That I’m Sad’ increased instead, which showed the album and Guan Yili’s strength.
However, the hard copies fell below 100k.
Some people that didn’t like Guan Yili or companies that had sinister motives started to set the trend.
“Look, only brainless youngsters like it, the one that is truly with charm gotta be ‘Comeback’.”
“Who would disagree? ‘Comeback’ is a painstaking work from Teacher Lu while those love songs were written by him just for fun!”
“I also think so too and those brainless teenagers are taking it as some timeless classic!”
Their unprovoked ridicule obviously angered those youngsters.
Young people were the most impulsive and they had time on their hands now so they immediately erupted.
“Go to hell! What ‘Comeback’? Only old people like to listen to it!”
“Fine if you don’t like it, are we begging you to listen to it?”
“Comeback sings like dogshit, we young people don’t like it!”
“Are you guys blind? How many onlies sales ‘Don’t Fear That I’m Sad’ did? Isn’t it ten times better than ‘Comeback’?”
“Just wait and watch! Our Yili will definitely become an emperor and when that time comes, who knows who’s going to pay Comeback to perform?!”
The two groups started to argue.
They argued in Weibo as well as in forums, they did it for several days and it was very lively.
Guan Yili was in a good mood with the album being popular and well received but was frightened when he saw that.
It wasn’t frightened by the people who praised ‘Comeback’ while ridiculing ‘Don’t Fear That I’m Sad’ but by his own fans.
Was this a joke?
Did they know who they were scolding?
It wasn’t at the group of trolls but cursing at Comeback!
In Comeback, there was Teacher Lu’s favorite Shui Qianyu, Teacher Lu’s senior Shui Qingshan and Shui Qingshan was also his benefactor so how did they go and scold him?
Wouldn’t this offend Teacher Lu?
Could he even become an emperor after offending Teacher Lu?
In your dream!
Just think about the Lightning Boys, how badly did they get beat up by Jian Peng?
Did his fans want him to become as miserable as the Lightning Boys?
Of course, this wouldn’t happen as he was very respectful to Teacher Lu and Uncle Shui and both of them knew it.
But if they continued to fan the flames, the relationship would sour no matter how good it was!
The frightened Guan Yili immediately called Chen Huan and Shui Qingshan to explain the matter.
Then he posted on Weibo.
“Please do not be misled by those vicious and provoking remarks, the teachers in the Comeback band are all my seniors and I still have a lot to learn from them.”
“And please compare all the songs written by Teacher Lu no matter from which singer or style. Personally, I love every single one of them!”
“I also deeply respect Teacher Lu Xiaofeng, he’s like a second parent to my path in music and there would be no me without him! Please no more insults.”
He finally calmed down his fans after a quick statement.
Those that were being indignant for Teacher Lu didn’t rush in and scold him in the end after seeing his humble attitude.
Only those people with ulterior motives continued to make noise but it didn’t get anywhere.
Like that, a storm that may have been set off turned quiet.
Guan Yili could be said to have escaped this one.
However, ‘Don’t Fear That I’m Sad’ sales went to the next level.
Although hard copies sales continued to decline, the album sales online exploded and squeezed out the few albums ahead of it.
Then suddenly, ‘Don’t Fear That I’m Sad’ ranked first in album sales.
The title of Guan Yili as the Prince of Love Songs was now being acclaimed by the masses!
