on

FEM English News – One of the top Indonesian rappers, A. Nayaka, returns with a newest groovy single titled ‘Marila Berdansa’ (‘Let’s Dance’), produced once again by Malaysian singer-songwriter-producer SonaOne.

This single is catchy and smooth to listen to, dishing an energizing and electrifying trap beat. ‘Marila Berdansa’ also samples an oldie Malaysian song, bringing a unique Melayu feel to fill in the song. The bilingual rap served by A. Nayaka is smooth and fiery.

“Back in 2021, SonaOne sent me a folder of five-six different beats that he had been working on, and one of the beats was for this song. So, he sampled a Malaysian artist named ‘Junaiah’, and the song title was ‘Kau Di Sayang’. Without thinking too much, we immediately got the idea and made the song,” said A. Nayaka about the single making process.

Released under Def Jam Indonesia, despite the upbeat tunes, and flirtatious and playful lyrics, ‘Marila Berdansa’ carries a deep message for its listeners.

“The literal story of the song is asking someone to dance. But figuratively, it’s a metaphor of when you wanna talk to a girl you just gotta do it. You need be brave and face yourself. I’m saying that you need to be able to face yourself to conquer challenges and to get what you want in life,” explained A. Nayaka.

With ‘Marila Berdansa’, A. Nayaka encourages everyone to take the steps and work towards achieving their dreams, with no fear nor doubt, and full of conviction.
