Rich Brian

專輯介紹


Rich Brian帶來2021年他的首支單曲“Sydney”,在這首由Brian自己製作的作品中,這位多才多藝的印尼藝術家,將自己標誌性的低沉人聲以及lay back flow與以薩克斯為裝點的製作相融合。在hook部分,Brian通過說唱講述了他多年來從來自雅加達的YouTube臥室歌手逐漸成長為亞洲音樂偶像這一過程中,他充滿野心與抱負的生活方式。在整首歌中,Brian回憶了自己這些年如何學會去忽視質疑的聲音,而更專注於自己的事業和生活以及下一步的自我實現。

“Sydney”也將作為2021年3月PUBG MOBILE職業聯賽東南亞總決賽的新主題曲出現。 PUBG MOBILE是一款移動端遊戲應用,日活躍用戶超3000萬,每年的下載量超7億次。此次賽事,對於整個東南亞的電競遊戲界來說是一個極為重大的時刻。

在印尼長大的Brian,自小在家接受自主教育,而後他通過網絡學習英語,藉由網絡打開了走向世界的大門。在他17歲獨自到美國生活之後,過往的經歷使他面對廣闊的新世界心生敬畏的同時又能始終保持謙虛的態度,獨特的成長環境既給他造成重重障礙使他感到挫敗,也成為他重新站立的推動力。在美國不斷成長的Brian,一步步完成了自己所期待的成就——從與自己喜歡的 21 Savage、Offset和Playboi Carti的合作,到在全世界舉辦座無虛席的演唱會與音樂節演出。 Brian的首張專輯《Amen》,於2018年二月發布之後,獲得了世界範圍的好評,並登上了iTunes Hip-Hop榜單的榜首——這對於亞裔音樂人來說是歷史性的第一次。 Brian在北美、歐洲和亞洲各地巡演的門票都銷售一空,在包括 Bonnaroo 和 Rolling Loud 等音樂節上的表現也獲得火熱的反響。

2019年,Rich Brian發布了自己的第二張正式專輯《The Sailor》,這張專輯在評論界廣受讚譽,Hypebeast發表評論稱“Rich Brian完美地詮釋了自己快速成長的聲量和亞裔的身份”。 《The Sailor》匯集了知名製作人如Bekon & Donuts、1Mind、Frank Dukes和Rich Brian個人原創的眾多作品,這張專輯記錄了Brian 在公眾視野中不斷成長的過程,他從一個崛起於互聯網之上的說唱歌手逐漸成為了一位屬於全球亞裔青年人的印尼偶像和英雄。這張專輯以“100 Degrees”, “Yellow”, 和 “Kids” 作為特色主打,目前在全球範圍已獲得了超過5億的流媒體播放量。

在經歷了數月因疫情而來的居家生活後,Brian在專輯《The Sailor》之後發布了自己的全新EP《1999》。這張EP是在幾個月的社會隔離環境中所產生的多元化的音樂作品,其中的大部分作品都由Brian自己創作與製作完成,同時Louis Bell、Bekon & The Donuts以及Santell也參與了製作。

On the self-produced track "Sydney", Rich Brian's first single of 2021, the multifaceted Indonesian artist blends his signature deep vocals and laid back flow with saxophone-laced production that's equally inspired by Three Six Mafia. On the hook, Brian raps about the high-flying lifestyle he has grown into over the years during his growth from a YouTube bedroom sensation in Jakarta into an Asian music icon. Throughout the song Brian reflects on how he learned over the years to care less about his doubters and focus more on his career, lifestyle, and his next steps toward self-actualization.

"Sydney" will also serve as the new anthem for the PUBG MOBILE Pro League Southeast Asia Final in March 2021. PUBG MOBILE is a mobile gaming application with over 30 million active daily users and over 700M+ downloads per year. This is a huge moment for the Southeast Asia gaming community.

Growing up homeschooled in Indonesia, Brian found the Internet to be his English teacher and window to the world beyond. After moving to America alone at the age of 17, Brian has been both awed and humbled by his experiences, as they simultaneously smack him down to Earth and lift him up. After making the leap to America, Brian has experienced all the glory of “making it” - from collaborating with the likes of 21 Savage, Offset, and Playboi Carti, to selling out shows and playing festivals around the world. Brian's debut project Amen, released in February 2018, garnered widespread critical acclaim and topped the iTunes Hip-Hop charts - a first in history for an Asian musician. Brian has since gone on to sell out shows across North America, Europe and Asia , and festivals around the world including Bonnaroo and Rolling Loud.

In 2019 he released 'The Sailor', Brian's second full-length album. The album received critical acclaim, with Hypebeast proclaiming, “Rich Brian flawlessly tackles his sonic growth and Asian identity.” Featuring production from Bekon & The Donuts, 1Mind, Frank Dukes and Rich Brian himself, 'The Sailor' documents Brian's coming-of-age in the public eye, which has taken him from an Internet-born rapper to an Indonesian icon and hero for Asian youth around the world. The album features singles “ 100 Degrees”, “Yellow”, and “Kids”, and has been streamed over 500M times globally.

After spending months in quarantine, Brian followed up “The Sailor” with the “1999” EP. A sonically diverse project borne out of months of social isolation, the majority of the EP is both self written and produced, with appearances from Louis Bell, Bekon & The Donuts, & Santell on production as well.
