What he will offer to his fans is a song created for the Beijing Olympics, in response to a request from the Olympic organizers for songs from worldwide composers.

Although the solicitation campaign has not finished yet, Chou's melody is ready, and he would like to treat his fans to it first, when the Olympics are just 100 days away,he told a press conference in Beijing on Tuesday. He is still awaiting contributions from writers around the world to match his melody with the appropriate lyrics.
