Ever heard a song for the first time which gives you instant goosebumps? Well, "Reign" is the perfect example. It will grip you upon first listen as the tribal beats and soaring harmonies of SATINA and Hairi Eyes pierce through your soul. With themes revolving around hardship and struggle, this powerful track is a hymn for the oppressed.
Sounds like: If Demi Lovato came together with Charlie Puth to write a protest song. The duo's voices are not only distinct and impressive on their own but they meld together effortlessly to capture the urgency of the lyrics.
The humble multi-hyphenate
This is Hairi's debut single but he is no stranger to the local music scene. Following in the footsteps of one of his influences Kanye West, he started off as a producer carving his own niche making music for a variety of Malay artistes.
Hairi's versatility and talent is undeniable however, and he gradually got noticed for his smooth vocal stylings, appearing on features and guest spots. "Reign" is Hairi's big coming-out party as a full-fledged singer and we're excited to see his talent shine through in such grand fashion.
The showstopping songstress
Fearless and unflinching, SATINA is right at home performing on stage. She is a powerhouse diva in every sense of the word, reminiscent of Beyoncé, Christina Aguilera and Alicia Keys. Her music embodies women empowerment and she hopes to break the stigma of perfection through her art.
This is not the first time SATINA and Hairi have collaborated together on a song. They previously did a cover of Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber's "Stuck with U" and it's just the most adorable thing ever!
