In this new entry in our ‘Diamonds In The Rough’ category, we want to introduce you to upcoming singer Rik! and his brand new single titled “1 Of 1”.

A tale of two cities, “My Type” is the story of romantic connection transcending distance, time, and illustrates the exhilaration of falling in love. When sweet boy meets shy girl who arrives in a foreign land, an act of kindness sets their chemistry in motion. This song is what unfolds when fiery, passionate rap and R&B meets the quiet, intense spark of indie pop, culminating in a pulsating duet speaking from the male and female perspective. The lyrics show the courage to be vulnerable when you know you’ve met the one who will protect your heart. “My Type” is a lovingly crafted, inter-genre collaboration between music producer Cruzu, rapper Peaceley – both based in the Netherlands – and upcoming singer-songwriter Alternate Jane from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Though it’s a worldwide colab; from the Netherlands to Malaysia, we love the connection these artists have on this song. The singing hook fits perfectly with the rapping verses and the smooth production. This is one for the late night playlists!
