21 Sep – Malaysian singer-songwriter Zee Avi has recently teamed up with Filipino performers Inigo Pascual and Sam Concepcion to release a new song titled, "RISE".
The singer, who also collaborated with Grammy Award-winning R&B singer Eric Bellinger, Manila-based producer Moophs, and BTS' "Black Swan" composer Vince Nantes in creating the cross-cultural single to uplift everybody during the tough times, stated that she was in love with the lyrics the first time she heard it.
"It makes you question but also leaves a sense of hope for all of us during this time. RISE is such a simple word, yet it's something that we need to keep reminding ourselves of," she added.
The song, produced under ABS-CBN's Philippine-based music label Tarsier Records, is now out on digital platforms worldwide, with two music videos now available on YouTube – one is a lyrics video and the other an animated video straight out of a comic book, where the artistes portray superheroes battling 'the 2020 monster'.
