BEIJING (Reuters) – A new English-language song released by Chinese state media for the Beijing Winter Olympics has divided opinion, gaining effusive praise on Chinese social media but panned by overseas critics as “cringey” and out of touch with reality. The Beijing Games are set to take place from Feb. 4 to 20. It generated a big thumbs-up on Chinese Weibo, especially by fans of Zeng, who has over 20 million followers on Weibo. The Games will be held in a “bubble” that strictly separates athletes and other Games personnel from the public. More collaborations between Chinese pop stars and state media are scheduled as the games near.
