Magic (Chinese: 看我72變) is the fifth studio album by Taiwanese singer Jolin Tsai. It was released on 7 March 2003, by Sony Music Taiwan.[1] Tsai managed to sign with Sony in February 2002, and got one of her biggest successes in her music career.[2] A reinvention in her music and image gave Tsai what she needed to make a comeback to the music scene after being gone for almost a year.[3] The highly anticipated album sold more than 1.5 million copies in Asia,[4] with more than 360,000 copies sold in Taiwan alone,[5] and made Tsai the best-selling female singer of the year in Taiwan.[5] The opening track, "Say Love You", reached number 3 on the Hit FM Top 100 Singles of the Year.[6] The title track, "Magic", reached number 24 on the chart.[6] The fifth track, "Prague Square", reached number 65 on the chart.[7] The album instantly restored Tsai's reputation, earned her two Golden Melody Award nominations for Best Mandarin Female Singer and Best Pop Vocal Album,[8] and earned her an MTV Asia Award nomination for Favorite Artist Taiwan.[9]
