Def Jam Southeast Asia artists are no strangers to posse cut remixes – in April, six signees including SYA and Ben Utomo teamed up on a hip-hop remix of Olivia Rodrigo’s hit single ‘Drivers License’.
For DABOYWAY, Rayi, ALYPH and Fariz, ‘Watch Yourself’ is their first release of 2021. On the other hand, Raja released the single ‘Mami’ and King Promdi dropped ‘Prom Date’ in March.
