Filipino-American artist Christian Kuya chose this week to finally deliver the first visual “FIJI“ off his latest self titled EP KUYA, which was released this past December.
The video, directed by well known visual artist, Edgar Esteves (Russ – What The Want), allows Christian to give fans what they’ve been waiting for, seeing as though he’s teased the clip for weeks via social media.
Either way, the intense visual shot on location (Oahu) features Chris with some rather steamy company, setting up just the right laid-back vibe!
Lucky for me I was able to briefly interview the rising star on everything concerning the track, check it out below.
Tell me what was your Motivation For creating the track?
I just heard the beat and thought about the most wavy thing I could think of and I was drinking a Fiji water at that time, and the rest is history lol.
How long it took to make It?
I made Fiji in like 2 days. I like to take my time with music and not rush the process, sometimes it takes 3-4 days for 1 song, sometimes it takes 1 hour, just depends on how far I push myself.
Who produced it for you?
BeatsModeMusic, a dope producer in Atlanta, he’s my korean partna, but he’s cold with the beats. Can’t wait to work with him some more. We got heat coming soon!
I haven’t done any features with anyone really, I want the people to get to know me, my story, my voice, and then once they are familiar with my vibe, I’ll be working with alot more people. Everyone in Private Club is dope, and we all vibe good, so I would expect you will hear something from someone in that camp and me soon.
Dropping 1 video for every song off the KUYA EP, which is out on soundcloud and spotify right now. So that’s a 8 total, I’m dropping Fiji today, so if you haven’t seen that yet, make sure you go to Rivnow.com or youtube and check it out now.
