Rich Brian releases single & music video for “New Tooth” on 88rising
Indonesian rapper/singer/producer Rich Brian releases his introspective and hard-hitting new single “New Tooth” on 88rising. Viciously urgent, the track acts as Brian's internal monologue as he fights back on self-doubt, negative impulses, and creative blocks. Listen and watch “New Tooth” HERE.
The arresting visual - directed, scripted, and edited by Rich Brian himself and inspired by police thrillers such as The Raid and Infernal Affairs - features a gripping narrative as Brian stars as a S.W.A.T. officer turned business mogul exacting his revenge on a double cross agent. The 22 year-old continues to showcase his acting chops following the announcement of his big-screen debut in the upcoming film Jamojaya, directed by the critically-acclaimed Justin Chon (Blue Bayou, Ms. Purple).
Complete with a slow-burning pensive bridge, the fast-rising artist – and first Indonesian to surpass 10 million monthly Spotify listeners – lays the track to rest as he raps “This shit done make me cry/Man this shit ain’t civilized, I ain’t born to die.../I need to stay awhile.”
“I really took my time on this song & I think it was worth it.” explains Rich Brian, “The video was very fun to shoot & edit I feel like I went back to my 2011 filmmaking days, shoutout to Jason Ano”
This Saturday, November 6, Rich Brian will close out the first night of 88rising’s flagship Head In The Clouds festival. The line-up also includes labelmates Joji and NIKI plus Saweetie, CL, DPR Live, Beabadoobee, Japanese Breakfast, keshi, The Linda Lindas, and many more. https://hitcfestival.com/
