J-POP》,原名《Urban Pop》[1],是容祖兒的第二十二張個人廣東專輯,是第一張只有八首新歌的專輯。專輯的錄音過程早於2014年開展,但最終亦於2016年6月23日發行,iTunes數位版就於一星期前提早發佈。

全碟由祖兒好友兼音樂監制馮翰銘負責,專輯主題和方向是發放正能量,希望為香港人打氣。

"J-POP" (originally named "Urban Pop"[1]) is Joey Yung's twenty-first Cantonese album, three years after the last one "Little Day". The eight-song album was released on June 23, 2016, while the iTunes version was released one week earlier.

The whole album was produced by Alex Fung, Joey's friend and famous singer-producer. Its theme is to provide positive energy, and to encourage Hong Kong people.

Development

For this album, Joey wanted to release a bunch of singles before releasing the album.

This was the first time Joey released an album digitally first, instead of having the physical albums on stock on the same day.

This album was also awarded as Ultimate Best Album in Ultimate Song Chart Awards Presentation, which was the first and only time Joey received this award.

Singles History

At the final night of the Hong Kong leg of the JYxHL concert, "Evening Jukebox" was released on digital platforms without any announcement ahead. One day later, a lyric video was released on her channel[2]. The public was surprised by the sudden release, the genre and the theme of the song. Although it ended up not being very popular, the Jan Lamb featured song was still mostly praised.

In December 2015, Joey released another song, "Gotta Get High". At this point, they had targeted on cheering up Hong Kong people as the theme of the album, thus the release of upbeat songs. The music video was shot at Last Vegas at Christmas 2014[3], during the American stop of her Concert 1314 tour.

Joey invited Korean musicians, music video director and choreographers for her next plug, "Available". The song was heavily inspired by Korean pop songs. The Wyman Wong penned single received three number 1s in major Hong Kong media platforms.

Before the album's release, Joey released one more single, "Nobody Knows a Gemini". Contrary to the three upbeat or mid-tempo songs released, this one is a classic Cantopop ballad. Joey collaborated with new musician, Cousin Fung for the first time. Long time friend, lyricist Wyman Wong once again wrote the song specifically for Joey, describing the personalities and feelings of a Gemini. The song also received three number 1s in major Hong Kong media platforms.

"Non-Matching Socks" was released after the album release. It gained a nice momentum and received two number 1s. However it did not have a music video treatment, due to Joey being busy on the JYxHL tour. "New Love" and "Player" were also released briefly. They failed to chart due to little to no promotion.
