同時,“I Love You 3000 II”採用了印尼歌手/作詞人Stephanie Poetri在今年早些時候發佈的在全球引起病毒性傳播的原創流行歌曲,並將其與王嘉爾進行了獨家二重奏Remix合作。

今年八月,Head In The Clouds音樂節吸引了超過了23,000多名粉絲前往洛杉磯國家歷史公園參加,因此今年歌迷們對《Head In The Clouds II》專輯的期待遠遠超過以往任何時候。在CNN,福布斯,Bloomberg,紐約客,Billboard,Pitchfork和洛杉磯時報等知名媒體的廣泛推崇下,88rising正處於將亞洲文化推向新高度的最前沿。在短短三年內,“88rising已成為創造亞洲和美國跨界流行文化的權威。“ “從售罄的世界型巡演,舉辦音樂節,與GUESS合作,以及與當今最知名的明星進行合作,88rising在全球的文化影響力是不可否認的。”

"On October 11th, 88rising returns with the 2nd edition of their collaborative album Head In The Clouds II - the pioneering label and artist collective’s annual world-building effort that brings together rising artists from East to West. The long-awaited and ambitious album follows hit singles “Indigo” with NIKI, “Just Used Music Again” with RHYME SO, “Breathe” with Joji and Don Kez, and “These Nights” with Rich Brian & CHUNG HA.

In addition to 88rising’s core crew of Rich Brian, Joji, NIKI, Higher Brothers and AUGUST 08, Head In The Clouds II is executive produced by Joji and features unprecedented global collaborations with Swae Lee (of Rae Sremmurd), Major Lazer, Jackson Wang, GoldLink, CHUNG HA, Phum Viphurit, GENERATIONS from EXILE TRIBE, Stephanie Poetri and more. Across 16 tracks, the album spans 6 countries (United States, Indonesia, Japan, Thailand, South Korea, and China) yet creates a cohesive sound that blends elements of vintage R&B, hip-hop, disco, and forward-thinking pop.

Highlights from the album include global focus track “Walking”, an infectious pop hit bringing together blissful melodies from Swae Lee of Rae Sremmurd, Japanese singer-songwriter Joji, and Chinese pop superstar Jackson Wang, on top of production from the globetrotting electronic music trio Major Lazer. “Need Is Your Love” finds Joji crooning with the legendary Japanese pop group GENERATIONS from EXILE TRIBE on an all-out disco anthem. “These Nights” is Indonesian rapper Rich Brian and rising K-Pop sensation CHUNG HA’s exercise in 80s-era R&B perfect for late night cruising. “Indigo” showcases the rise of NIKI, whose songs are on the heels of 250 million views and counting on the TikTok app. Meanwhile, “I Love You 3000 II” takes Indonesian singer-songwriter Stephanie Poetri’s original viral hit from earlier this year and pairs her with Jackson Wang for an exclusive duet remix.

With the recent Head In The Clouds music festival, which brought over 23,000 fans out to LA State Historic Park this August, anticipation for Head In The Clouds II is higher than ever. Revered by the likes of CNN, Forbes, Bloomberg, The New Yorker, Billboard, Pitchfork and Los Angeles Times, 88rising is at the forefront of catapulting Asian culture into new dimensions. In just three years, “88rising has become an authority on how to create Asian and American pop-culture crossovers.” From selling out world tours, hosting festivals, collaborating with GUESS, and working with today's biggest stars, 88rising’s cultural influence is undeniable."
