Oh yes I was mortified but at the same time, I felt great relief that I could let it out. So yes, it's all true. Nikki and I are engaged. Thank you for all your kind and supportive comments. I will give more details later.
I really want to talk about the new track you hear on the playlist. It's called "Sudah".
I've been working on this concept for ballads for a few years now but somehow, it has not been a hit. I first tried it with Vince and Nur on Vince's debut album back in 2004. Then again with "Romeo + Juliet" with Ebi and Nikki. And a few other times in between.
I prefer conversational duets rather than two singers exchanging lines. For me, a duet has to work when two people sing it and it won't work when you only have one singer. It's like two people doing a monologue. It doesn't make sense for me.
This is another attempt.
This is yet another try to use the erhu as the leading instrument. I've used it twice before; for Vince and Farah Asyikin. But the songs were not released as singles. Because I enjoy the challenge by shocking people more, I added the guzheng as well.
Whatever the outcome, I am really proud of this song and I consider this one of my best songs.
Diddy and Nur performs superbly. They also wrote the lyrics together. It was an easy session. Everyone just got what I was going for. Recording the erhu and guzheng was a challenge because of the language but man....those instruments are beautiful. Instant class and elegance.
If you like me, get the ringback tone.
