Stefanie Sun signs with Universal Music

Singer Stefanie Sun's next album and tour will be supported by her new label Universal Music to the tune of a few million dollars.

A spokesman for the label says that it will commit a "nine-figure sum in Taiwan dollars", adding that there is "no time limit" on when the Singaporean singer has to deliver on her work.

This was revealed to regional reporters after the official signing ceremony held at Capella Singapore on Tuesday.

The flexible working schedule Sun is afforded is considered quite a luxury in the competitive Mandopop scene.

Looking elegant and svelte at the press event in a black mesh top and a gold glittery skirt, she said: "I think I'm very lucky not to have too much pressure with regards to album sales and stuff like that, because I've been around for so many years. It's a lot harder for new singers.

"For me, I want to make sure that every new album is better than before, and also offers something new and unique for the listeners."

At the signing ceremony, Mr Sunny Chang, chairman of Greater China, Universal Music, said that the company is "very excited" about signing on "one of the best-selling female singers" in Mandopop, and that the company will do all it can to bolster her career.

To date, Sun, 35, has 11 top-rated albums to her name and has sold more than 30 million records since making her debut in 2000.

Universal is her fourth record label, after Warner Music, EMI and Wonderful Music.

At the ceremony, Sun said simply with a grin: "I think Universal will be treating me very well."
