AleXa collaborates with Arabic pop star Bader AlShuaibi on new single, 'Is It On' – watch

AleXa and Bader AlShuaibi bring the worlds of K-pop and Arabic pop together in their new collaborative single!

Titled 'Is It On', the track is an initiative by Spotify and Warner Music Korea and is the first-ever collaboration between artists from the former's RADAR Korea and RADAR MENA programmes, which support budding artists in South Korea and the Middle East and North Africa respectively. 

Penned by Bader and produced by ORAE, the single, out on 21 May, will capitalise on K-pop's popularity in countries such as the UAE and Saudi Arabia and "amplify music with the potential to crossover". It will also allow both Bader and AleXa to extend their reach to new audiences around the world. 

“I’m so grateful for this collaboration. It’s a fresh, never-heard-before mix of cultures and sound. I really can’t wait for our fans all over the world to hear this track,” shared 'Bomb' hitmaker AleXa, who won Soompi's Rising Legends and participated in the 2018 reality competition series Produce 48.

The Korean-American artist's enthusiasm was shared by her collaborator. Bader said: 'It’s 2021, we barely see any borders between cultures and people. This project is the child of globalisation and my personal love for Korean Pop culture. AleXa is an extremely talented artist and together I believe we created the coolest cross-cultural collaboration, ever."
