Her music incorporates elements from indie pop, dream pop and electronic. Since then, she has released 6 albums and/or EPs which have gained immense popularity.
Over the span of her career, Li has been nominated for over 30 different awards and has since won 6 of those. Not only has Li been successful in the music industry but has also taken part in modelling and film.
