As Yung Raja continues to bridge the gap between Southeast Asia’s culture through his music, he’s accumulated over six million streams on his previously released singles ‘Mustafa’ and ‘Mad Blessings’, a track that received co-signs by Lupe Fiasco and M.I.A. Earlier this year, Raja was named one of NME’s 100 artists of 2021, a first for a Singaporean artist. He’s also received critical acclaim from several publications, including Hypebeast, ELLE (Singapore), VICE/Noisey and Rolling Stone (India).
Hoping to break barriers, Yung Raja’s goal is to reinvent societal views and bring Southeast Asian hip-hop to an international level through his music.
The video for ‘Mami’ is on the way but until then, peep the audio below.
