Super Star is S.H.E's 5th album. It was released on August 22, 2003. Ella suffered a back injury during the shooting of a television show one month before the album was released. Because of this, Ella is absent from some of the music videos. As of 2006, the single "Super Star" from this album has been S.H.E's biggest hit. It is a common misconception that S.H.E's 2003 hit "Super Star" is a cover song. German producer Roberto "Geo" Rosan composed "Super Star" for S.H.E. After it became popular, Geo had the lyrics rewritten for his Euroband, Sweetbox, as the song "Chyna Girl". In 2004, Canadianmarker singer Skye Sweetnam re-recorded "Super Star" as "Superstar".

Reception

On the HITORadio Top 10 Charts, Super Star continued Youth Society 's success by landing six songs on the charts. Furthermore, Super Star earned S.H.E their second consecutive Best Group and Best Chart Performance awards at the 2004 HITO Awards. The album's title track itself was also well-received. Not only was "Super Star" crowned Metro Radio's 2004 Song of the Year, it was also rewarded for being one of the year's best songs at the HITO Radio Music Awards, Singapore Hit Awards, and Hong Kong TVB8 Awards. The four awards earned by "Super Star" were the most for any S.H.E song until "Don't Wanna Grow Up" (Once Upon a Time) earned six between 2006 and 2007.

Music videos

Both "Far Away" and "River Shore Park" are based on themes of lost love; "Super Star," while dominated by a rock concert concept, contains a loose love plot where the girl is rejected, only to receive a kiss later in the video. "Heavy Rain" is a story of companion love between two parents, played by Selina and Hebe. "I.O.I.O" is a story of two girls, Selina and Hebe, fighting over a boy (Ella) who actually doesn't like either girl in the first place. The video was the first to feature S.H.E super deformed; more concrete versions were featured in S.H.E's next album, Magical Journey.
