Riot Games has recently launched its regional open-beta for League of Legends: Wild Rift on the mobile platform. To celebrate this occasion, Riot Games Southeast Asia has launched two music collaborations – ‘555’ with Thai artists FIIXD, Younggu, DIAMOND MQT, MARINA and Mona V, and ‘ALL IN’, with Indonesian electronic and synth-pop trio Weird Genius.
‘555‘, a common expression for laughter in Thai, is also an acronym for League of Legends and serves as the inspiration behind this Wild Rift celebratory track. ‘555‘ was produced by five-time ‘Rap Is Now‘ Producer Of The Year NINO, the hitmaker behind songs including ‘เป็นไรไหม?’ – OG-ANIC X LazyLoxy and ‘พักก่อน‘ – MILLI. The ‘555‘ music video was directed by DirectorNET.
Weird Genius’ 2020 hit single ‘Lathi‘ went viral earlier this year, generating over 330 million video views and topping the Spotify Indonesia charts as the #1 most listened-to song for six consecutive weeks. ‘ALL IN‘, the latest track from Weird Genius, features fast-paced beats that mimic the high energy, team-based gameplay of League of Legends: Wild Rift, promising players an infectious soundtrack to their best plays. The track also features vocals by Singaporean Singer-Songwriter Tabitha Nauser, who made her R&B-Pop debut in 2017 with her single ‘Bulletproof‘, which peaked at #1 on Spotify’s SG Viral 50 chart.
