PREMIERE: Airliftz pays stunning tribute to the quintessential 'SEA Gyal' in new single and music video – watch

Airliftz has turned in a thing of elegance, poise and beauty.

Today, the Malaysian rapper, who has, in his still-blossoming career, emerged as one of the most essential voices in Southeast Asian hip-hop, and who will be performing at Baybeats 2019, bares his heart in a gorgeously crafted song and music video dedicated to the quintessential Southeast Asian girl, 'SEA Gyal'.

Where Rae Sremmurd say they have 'No Type', Airlifz begs to differ. Even though the title implies a generalisation and an ideal, Airliftz offers specifics such as, "She's from the Southeast / That be my place / A little spicy / That be my taste", over a spectacularly lush soul instrumental with swooning synths and robust drums.

The accompanying music video, helmed by director ATG, is likewise upfront about celebrating its subject matter. In a cinematically abstract treatment that sees various Southeast Asian girls dressed in lovely gowns, that changes setting to match the escalation in mood and music, Airliftz makes a heartwarming and sincerely inspired case for the girl of his dreams.
