Catch a sneak peek of Firdhaus’s 1st Malay release exclusively on TikTok

“AkuGilaKamu” next big project following the singer’s previous viral hit “Gulf Of Alaska”

Tri-lingual singer songwriter Firdhaus will be releasing his 1st ever Malay single, AkuGilaKamu, after his previous hit single Gulf of Alaska went viral. Pre-released exclusively on TikTok on 16 July 2021, AkuGilaKamu will be available on all streaming platforms on 23 July 2021

AkuGilaKamu is a cover song of Chinese singer-rapper YOUNGJACK’s Slowly Fall in Love, which trended online & topped the charts at the Global Chinese Music Awards. Firdhaus, a Johorean who was born into a traditional Malay family but grew up learning & speaking fluent Mandarin, chose to cover the song as his first Malay single as a tribute to how his own venture into the music industry followed a similar path

With AkuGilaKamu, Firdhaus showcases his versatility & puts his own spin on the medium-tempo Slowly Fall in Love. The lyrics echo the original song’s longing for a lover & delivers a strong & catchy synth hook

“I wrote the Malay lyrics for AkuGilaKamu in a 2-day span & it was a pleasant experience working with the production team from MFMF. to refine the lyrics & create the song. AkuGilaKamu was a new challenge for me as it is my first time attempting this genre of music & it is my 1st step into my Malay music career. I have a lot more music to offer & a lot more stories to tell, so I hope people will love AkuGilaKamu,” said Firdhaus

Firdhaus previously gained regional recognition for his self-written & self-composed song Gulf Of Alaska. The success followed him onto local grounds as he connected to Malaysian fans through his song covers of trending English, Malay, Chinese & even Korean songs

“TikTok, as the leading destination for short-form mobile videos, has become a leading platform for music discovery & an opportunity to discover many new artists & genres. Firdhaus is only 1 of the many artists who have found their break on the platform & we are excited to witness his growth & new single. Our mission is always to inspire creativity & bring joy to the community through unlimited creativity & expression,” said Sheau Mei Cheah, the Marketing Lead for TikTokSouth East Asia
