Jay Chou (traditional Chinese: 周杰倫; simplified Chinese: 周杰伦) is a Taiwanese musician, singer, producer, actor and director who has won the World Music Award four times. He is well-known for composing all his own songs and songs for other singers. In 1998 he was discovered in a talent contest where he displayed his piano and song-writing skills. Over the next two years, he was hired to compose for popular Chinese singers. Although he was trained in classical music, Chou combines Chinese and Western music styles to produce songs that fuse R&B, rock and pop genres, covering issues such as domestic violence, war, and urbanization.

In 2000 Chou released his first album, titled Jay, under the record company Alfa Music. Since then he has released one album per year, selling several million copies each. His music has gained recognition throughout Asia, most notably in regions such as Mainland China, Japan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Vietnam, Taiwan, and in overseas Asian communities, winning more than 20 awards each year. He has sold over 25 million albums worldwide. He debuted his acting career in Initial D (2005), for which he won Best Newcomer Actor in Golden Horse Awards, and was nominated for Best Supporting Actor by Hong Kong Film Awards for his role in Curse of the Golden Flower (2006). His career now extends into directing and running his own record company JVR Music. He has also endorsed various models of Media Players released by Onda in which he appears on the box, and his signature and likeness is printed on the back of certain models of these players.

Fa Ru Xue is the third track on Jay Chou's album, November's Chopin. Fa Ru Xue translates as, Hair Like Snow. The title may seem odd to non-Chinese speakers, the song also makes numerous references to Chinese philosophy, including past lives, reincarnation, and mythology, which leaves many non-Chinese fans confused when they read the translation of the lyrics. This confusion does little to impact the overall popularity of the song. The song was acclaimed by many of Jay's fans and critics, it is known to be one of Jay's best works. The lyrics for the song was written by Vincent Fang, Jay's lyricist and good friend. The lyrics, which were written before the actual composition, earned Fang his eighth straight nomination for Best Lyricist at Taiwan's 17th Golden Melody Awards.
