James Reid, JAY B, and ØZI are saying hello to all their international fans with the single ‘Hello 2.0 (Legends Only)’.
The single, released on March 11, is the remix of Reid’s 2021 single ‘Hello’, a celebration of global music, with the combination of three languages, English, Korean lyrics sung by JAY B and Mandarin from the Taiwanese-American singer-songwriter ØZI. The song proves once again that music is a universal language.
‘Hello 2.0 (Legends Only)’ is a groovy, funk-pop dance track that will make you move your body and boost your mood. The song starts with James Reid’s R&B vocals to leave space for JAY B’s velvety tones and high notes, and reaches its peak with ØZI’s smooth and impeccable rap.
After its release, the song debuted on the Worldwide iTunes Song Chart at No.46 and has charted No.1 on the iTunes Song Chart in 5 countries so far – Argentina, Fiji, Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Costa Rica. The music video for the track will be released on March 17.
James Reid said about the release, “Asia has a lot to offer in terms of music so I’m grateful to have a project like this in which the big idea is a collaboration between different Asian countries.”
JAY B joined in expressing his excitement in working on the song, “I’m grateful to have the opportunity to do this cool collaboration and happy to have a fun project with James Reid. I hope that there will be many great collaborations with artists from various countries in the future. Starting with this collaboration with James, I also want to show myself to fans from various countries with more artists, various performances, and songs”.
ØZI also said about the project, “It’s a pleasure working with James and JAY B. Love the energy of the record. Hope we can all get together and perform the song together in our cities soon.”
‘Hello 2.0 (Legends Only)’ is James Reid’s recent release after 2021’s ‘Hello’, ‘Crazy’, and ‘Soda’; JAY B has recently worked with JUNNY on the single ‘nostalgia’ and released the EP LOVE as Def. This is ØZI’s latest release since his 2021 album PEDESTAL.
