A year later, on July 1999, her first single "Living With the World" was released. It was sold in convenience stores and was a tremendous success, which led to the release of her first album, Jolin 1019, on September 1999. At that time, she was packaged as "The Girl Next Door," and was an instant hit with teenagers, earning her the title "Teenage Boy Killer". Her 1st album, Jolin 1019, sold more than 400,000 copies around Asia. With the success of her 1st album, she released her anticipated 2nd album in May 2000, Don’t Stop, and many of her hits in that album are well known throughout Asia. She also released her 1st photo book that is mainly taken in Hawaii. This album was also a tremendous success
Her image changed for her third album, Show Your Love. Being more mature and nearing the age of 21, it was a much soothing album with many new songs and tunes. However, the sales of this album was not at good as compared to the previous 2. The fourth album, Lucky Number, did not manage to bring her back to the previous popularity she enjoyed. She also sang the theme song for the movie Atlantis.
The following year, due to conflicts with her record company, she did not release any albums. However, she did release out her 2nd photo book, taken in Thailand, containing a single composed by Jay Chou. She finally managed to sign with Sony Music, and got the biggest break in her whole career. Her album Magic topped the Taiwan album charts for 3 full months and sold more than 300,000 copies in Taiwan alone. This transformation gave her what she needed to make a comeback to the music scene after being gone for almost a year.
In 2006, Jolin left her Sony BMG Record label and joined EMI Capitol. Jolin performed concerts in the U.S (New York and Irvine, California). She had Alan Luo Zhi Xiang (aka Show) as her guest appearance at the J1 concert (in place of Jay Chou). She recently won the MTV Asia Style Award 2006 at Bangkok, Thailand.

"Diva" is also the name of her new album and it will be her first album under Capitol label which has been set to release on May 12, 2006. Dancing Diva had sold over 2 million copies within Asia.
