Video: ‘Life in China will never get bored’, says Xinhua’s new rap song on foreign residents

Chinese news state agency Xinhua has released a new video titled Another Day in China to unironically chronicle the lives of expats in China.

Posted on Thursday with the tagline “Life in China will never get bored!” – the song, like its predecessors, adopts the trope of expats fawning over China.

The video boasts China’s embracing of the digital revolution, peppering mentions of various apps into the verses.

“With Wai Mai, Kuai Di, WeChat, I’d be super screwed without my phone,” belts the singer in the video.
