This sort of R&B song has changed my image of Mai-K! Never Gonna Give You Up is quite different from her previous singles, Stay By My Side and Secret Of My Heart. Of course, I'm not saying the previous singles are bad, but songs like NEVER GONNA GIVE YOU UP do catch my eye when ladies like Mai-K sing them. In other words, I wouldn't be interested in them if cheerful girls sang them. Particularly, I love the English raps of Michael Africk and Mai. It seems to me as if they enjoyed dating with each other. I bet this is a really terrific collaborative song!
I have had fewer chances to encounter Mai's English songs recently. But songs like NEVER GONNA GIVE YOU UP make me feel she is very cool and smart because most of the lyrics are written in English. Since most of her fans appreciate her impressive command of English and Chinese, I would like her to sing in both of the languages like she used to!
