There is an endless library of incredible Ramadan songs that celebrate the holiest month of the Islamic calendar. An essential addition to that collection would be the recently released ‘Balik Kampung’ – a wholesome Hip Hop banger featuring Malaysian rappers Yonnyboii, Kmy Kmo, Luca Sickta, Siqma, and ASYRAF NASIR. Just in time for every family and friend gathering, these rappers pay their respects to a time of joy and celebration.

‘Balik Kampung’ features flamboyant production with bright horn sections and thumping drums that can make anyone groove along. Each rapper then hops on and delivers verses that touch on their longing for home and the people that make these places worthy of their sentimental feelings. Returning home during Ramadan is an indispensable act that everyone who celebrates the occasion should partake in, so ‘Balik Kampung’ sees the importance of encouraging listeners to go home to their loved ones.

The single was largely written by Yonnyboii and Luca Sickta, putting a Hip Hop spin on the classic track of the same name. Both artists had once worked together on last year’s ‘Dua Puluh’ with Kmy Kmo and Siqma again as well – keeping their chemistry fresh and alive for their Hari Raya song.
