On April 3, Eason Chan 陳奕迅 released a new music video in which he sings a duet with Taiwanese pop queen Jolin Tsai 蔡依林, named Fight as One. The song is in English and pays tribute to medical personnel everywhere working on the front lines of the current COVID-19 pandemic situation.

Besides the rare partnership of Eason and Jolin, this production is also a collaboration between Eric Kwok 郭偉亮 and Jerald Chan 陳哲廬, who used to be members of the band Swing. In addition to contributing to the lyrics, Jerald was responsible for arrangement and production while Eric played the part of Eason's vocal producer. The lyrics are simple and easy to understand, and the melody is pleasing and uplifting.

The music video itself incorporated montages of front-line healthcare workers and daily quarantine life of regular citizens from all over the world. Although several shots depicted people wearing masks under the threat of the infectious disease, their expressions always carried a powerful feeling of hope.

Fight as One lyrics:
It's a crowded street and there's no one there
Everyone is living in fear
With all the playgrounds I hear no laughters
Everyone has left in tears

Will there be hope when we wake up tomorrow?
If you believe that love is what we need
Will there be light when we're done with sorrows?
If you believe we need to fight together as one

It’s a fight we cannot lose
It’s a fight for you and me
A fight for everyone, no matter where you're from
It’s alright we will not lose
it’s alright for you and me
We're fighting for a better place to be

It's really not that bad if you think about it
For once the world has come together
Could've been much worse, you think about it
At least we're not fighting one another

There must be hope when we wake up tomorrow
When you believe that love is what we need
There must be light when we're done with sorrows
When you believe we need to fight together as one

It’s a fight we cannot lose
it’s a fight for you and me
A fight for everyone, no matter where you're from
It’s alright we will not lose
it’s alright for you and me
We're fighting for a better place to be

It’s a fight we cannot lose
it’s a fight for you and me
Everyone, no matter where you're from
It’s alright we will not lose
it’s alright for you and me
We're fighting for a better place to be

We’ll fight together...... as ONE.
