KIKX COLLABORATES WITH FILIPINO-JORDANIAN RAPPER ACE$ FOR “YOUR NAME”

 A tribute to the King of Pop Michael Jackson

 

Acclaimed singer-songwriter KIKX Salazar deals with his passionate feelings for someone in “Your Name,” a new song under Old School Records featuring newcomer, Filipino-Jordanian rapper ACE$.

 

A tribute to KIKX’s biggest musical influence Michael Jackson, “Your Name” bears a prominent synthwave sound popular in the ‘80s. Its lyrics about deep obsession and intense love is also a nod to the themes of the King of Pop’s songs.

 

KIKX said he first worked on the song in early 2019, but its final version was co-written by Nameless Kids’ frontman Nhiko Sabiniano. Its featured artist, ACE$, also contributed to writing additional rap lyrics.

 

Meanwhile, in line with Old School Records’ vision of evoking the old eras of music, KIKX decided to simultaneously drop a remix version of the track—a practice common in the ‘90s when releasing special singles.

 

Aside from ACE$, KIKX is joined by another fresh face in the music scene, Kevin Redder, in “Your Name (Remix).” The version, arranged by Nhiko, has additional lyrics on top of a slower tempo.

 

Dive into a fervent affair by streaming “Your Name” and its remix, out now on various digital music streaming services. For more details, follow Old School Records on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram.
