Homegrown rappers Joe Flizzow and MK (from K-Clique) are joining forces with Korean-American hip hop sensation Jay Park in an upcoming track, Ciao.
"Jay Park and I have known each other for a while. We're both in the hip hop community so exchanging ideas and working together comes quite naturally. In fact, he invited me to perform on one of his albums previously," Joe told Harian Metro.
The Apa Khabar hitmaker was featured on Twisted Dreams, a track off Park's 2018 album, The Road Less Traveled.
He hopes his collaboration with Park will take the song outside of Malaysia."
Jay Park has a strong fanbase from all around the world. I think the song will benefit from that and penetrate the international market."
Despite its international appeal, Ciao is rife with local flavours. Joe says the track will incorporate colloquial terms Malaysians will relate to.
The 41-year-old believes the song is a testament to the quality of hip hop music in Asia.
"Our mission with this song is to show the calibre of Asian artistes."
Ciao premieres Jan 8 on all music streaming platforms.
