Sammi Cheng

Similar to "Heavenly King", Aaron Kwok, Sammi's career started with Capital Artists and later with Warner Music.

The lack of fast, upbeat songs by female singers in the early to mid-90's gave Sammi a chance to stardom, and she very well took advantage with some great dance hits, including "Lost Memory" and "Ding Dong". Sammi did just as well with romantic songs, with hits like "The Saddest Person", and the karaoke-favorite, "Somalia's Romeo And Juliet".

A contractual dispute led to Sammi's departure from Capital to Warner, where she then had her first chance to break into the huge mandarin market. Her first mandarin album, "Worthwhile", was an instant success, selling more than 300,000 copies in Taiwan alone.

Despite a talented group of new female singers emerging in Hong Kong, Sammi continues to stay at the top.
