Singer, ac­tress Ki­lafairy col­lab­o­rates with US star Sean Kingston

New Straits Times - - Entertainment -

KI­LAFAIRY made headlines last year when she was cho­sen to per­form Bol­ly­wood movie Dil­wale’s of­fi­cial sound­track in Malay, with Aliff Aziz, ti­tled Gerua.

This time around, the 25-year-old ac­tress and singer col­lab­o­rates with Amer­i­can singer Sean Kingston, 27, in a sin­gle ti­tled Put The Word In.

Kila, whose real name is Syak­ila Nisa Ja­hangir Khan, said the sin­gle, a blend of hip hop and pop, is com­posed by Brian B, who is also head of mu­sic at Tune Stu­dios and DJ Aku Ash, with lyrics by Amer­i­can singer-rap­per-song­writer Ra­dio3000.

“The song is about a girl who en­joys be­ing spoilt by her beau.

“I’m a big fan of Kingston’s work and this marks our first time work­ing to­gether,” she said, de­scrib­ing the work­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with Kingston as a pleas­ant one.

Kila and Kingston hit the stu­dio a few months ago to record the sin­gle. He flew to Kuala Lumpur just for this pur­pose.

“We took time to film the mu­sic video, but I need to shoot ad­di­tional scenes for the mu­sic video,” said Kila at Balai Berita in Kuala Lumpur yes­ter­day.

Set for a year end re­lease, the col­lab­o­ra­tion is made pos­si­ble by Lion Mu­sic Group, the mu­sic la­bel which Kila is signed un­der.

“Kingston is hum­ble and pro­fes­sional,” she said, adding that “it’s not ev­ery day that you get to work with a star like him!”

Kila said the song would be re­leased in Ba­hasa Malaysia.
