Indonesian rapper Rich Brian introduced a new single, "Bali", on Friday, his first release since the launch of his second studio album, The Sailor, in July 2019.
As one might expect, the song was indeed inspired by the famous paradise island it is named after.
Featuring American rapper Guapdad 4000, it boasts a jolly mix of playful reggae and hip-hop.
Brian told Billboard on Friday that, although he had been making a lot of music even before the COVID-19 lockdown, he was not currently planning on releasing an album. "I may come out with a short EP or something, but right now it's all up in the air."
Regarding the pandemic, the 20-year old said he was not that upset about having to cancel many things, as "we have to be responsible and do our part in not letting the virus go on any longer". He also shared that he was seeking to make the best of the situation by learning new skills and embracing old ones, such as cutting his own hair and editing videos.
The "Bali" single is available on major streaming platforms. (kes)
