Trilingual rising star, TIMUR, reveals her explosive new track "SABOTAGE".
Raised between Malaysia and the UK, the arts were always a fundamental part of TIMUR’s life. Growing up playing the piano, ukelele and saxophone – as well as practising ballet – TIMUR has also had extensive vocal training with renowned vocal coach Datukm Syafinaz. It seems TIMUR has the credentials to become a global pop phenomenon.
Harnessing her knowledge of three languages, TIMUR released her debut track “NOT A CRIMINAL” in English, Malay and Mandarin in an effort to capture a worldwide audience. It seemed to do the trick: the track reigned in 500,000 views on YouTube and was met with an enthusiastic response in Taiwan, the Philippines and the US.
Now, TIMUR is following suit with her latest single “SABOTAGE”, which will also be released in three languages. Flexing her flawless vocals and pop powerhouse demeanour, alongside “SABOTAGE” also comes a music video directed by Datuk Yusry Abdul Halim, as part of a trilogy of videos set for release.
Drawing comparisons between BLACKPINK and 2NE1 and having signed a contract with prestigious Malaysian record label KRU Music, TIMUR seems set to be catapulted into international stardom.
