Indonesian rapper, singer, and producer Rich Brian has released a surprise new EP titled ‘Brightside.’ The four-track project is out now HERE via 88rising / Warner Records. Listen and watch “Getcho Mans” ft. Warren Hue HERE. Full tracklist below.
On the EP, Brian said, “this project started from me making New Tooth and realizing how much I missed rapping, while doing melodies are fun, I wanted to remind people that I still love to rap. It’s short, it’s not an album, but I see it like a mental note of how the past year has accelerated my growing-up process as an artist & a person.“
Directed by the reggies (bbno$ & Rich Brian, Zack Fox, Kenny Beats, Aluna, Kaytranada), Brian also releases a new music video for the project’s high-energy focus track “Getcho Mans,” which features 88rising labelmate Warren Hue, and was entirely shot on film. The fast-paced music video captures the Indonesian rappers trading bars in a surreal visual that intensifies as clones of Rich Brian and Warren Hue invade the scenes and culminate into an all-out brawl.
On focus track, “Getcho Mans,” Brian said, “I remember hearing this beat for the first time and immediately astral projecting, me and Warren were very caffeinated in the studio that day and decided to Dragon Ball fusion on this track, this song has a lot of words in it, but it’s okay because it makes me feel invincible & I hope it makes you feel the same.“
The 22-year-old paved the way for ‘Brightside’ with the November release of “New Tooth.” The track has already amassed 7.5M+ streams across platforms and over 2.7 million YouTube views on the theatrical self-directed music video.
Brian recently made history by becoming the first Indonesian artist to attract 10 million monthly listeners on Spotify. He will also make his debut performance at Coachella this April. Stay tuned for more soon!
