When I first heard this song on the radio – I imagined it was sung by a Caucasian singer, Taylor Swift to be precise. It emitted the kind of vibe that she would associate herself with. Turns out it was Rose, a member of BlackPink who speaks in a terrific, sexy Australian accent.
I love this song. No wonder it has more than 120M views.
A classic by one of the best songstress in the country who existed during the times of Siti Nurhaliza. She is actually the queen of R&B, so to hear about this collaboration with Aubrey Suwito to record a Malay Classic album is somewhat refreshing. This rendition of Tari Tualang Tiga for example is just wow. Legend says they recorded the whole album LIVE with the orchestra outside of the studio. Meaning, those video clips you see of these songs is them recording concurrently.
The local music scene needs to pay more attention to this young man. He is like a young Faizal Tahir – have been reading comments on Youtube saying that his existence has FT’s DNA’s attached to it. Indeed. Amir Masdi after all was the champion for Akademi Fantasia some time ago, it’s just that the other winners in his batch kind of overshadowed him with their endless controversies (and talent). With his recent participation in Anugerah Juara Lagu (AJL), it should open more doors for him.
I have never actually watched this KDrama but hearing this for the first time on Youtube during one of those random clicks got me attached strongly to it. The video clip was enough to make me understand the meaning behind this soundtrack. It is not Kdrama if it doesn’t make you cry.
This guy was first known (to me) as an actor. Turned out he was equally talented in singing and composing. For a newcomer to the industry, it was an underdog accomplishment when he won AJL 34 with his song, Sumpah. AJL is this popular annual music competition, organized by TV3 in Malaysia since 1986 (wikipedia). We get really hyped about this competition, make predictions and such.
That’s it for now. I haven’t heard a good Chinese, Japanese and Spanish song for quite some time. Before it was a time of Rosalinda, MIs Tres Hermanas, Richie Ren, Ayumi Hamasaki but now I seem to have lost touch.
