Learn Mandarin online with music, videos, blogs & discussions.
I wanted to share a site for streaming music in China that a Chinese coworker tipped me off to that I have been using pretty much every day since. The site is QQ music and you can access it here:
If you are in China, using Chrome and a PC, then you will probably agree that this is the best free streaming music site, probably on the entire internet.
I can't vouch for how smooth the streaming is outside of China but inside it is seamless and the music videos are really high quality.
The site has a huge catalog of music to choose from, obviously favoring Chinese music but a ton of Western & world music as well. See the screenshots below - there's even like a billboard top 100 playlist option you can use. I usually just search by artist & add to playlist that way.
The site is all in Chinese but thanks to Gen's help, we've got some translated screenshots below to help you learn the basic functionality. You can also use Chrome's Google translate option to make it easier.
Just click a screenshot to enlarge & see translation notes.

I've heard that this site does not work well on Macs and you should use either Chrome or maybe Safari / Firefox when browsing on a PC.
You can create a free QQ account to make & save play lists. Recommended if you plan on using it frequently.
There is also a mobile app and I haven't used it but apparently you can even download all your playlist songs & use the phone for music offline. If anyone does this please let me know how it is in the comments below.
