Khalil Fong releases his latest English single “Throw It Off”.
Possibly one of the catchiest songs of the year, its urban chill-out vibe is sure to be a welcomed addition on anyone’s playlist. With his signature soulful R&B vocals over a synth-induced soundscape, Khalil delivers a minimalist zen-like message. The line “You’ve got to follow your heart” is not the cliché expression of following your dreams, but rather the philosophy that the human heart is inherently noble; if we truly listen to our conscience, we can find our best qualities within. In that same vein, the title and hook “throw it off” is to be detached from things that hinder our growth and realisation of our higher self.
The music video, filmed in four locations within Yunnan as well as Hunan’s “Avatar Mountains” have Khalil on a journey through forests and difficult mountain paths, finally revealing a spirit animal that represents the best of values found in Chinese culture.
“I chose the mythical Qilin because it is deeply rooted in Chinese culture and yet its association with morality and values is universal and is a topic that is becoming more and more important in the current age”
This hypnotic track is the main theme for his concert tour that begins this November.
