Hailing from Merrylands in Western Sydney, Lebanese-Australian artist Ay Huncho teams up with big guns Youngn Lipz and Mike Akox on a fresh global-sounding banger ‘Upgrade’, released via Biordi Music, the powerhouse record label at the forefront of the current explosion of Australian rap, drill and RnB.
Just in time for summer, ’Upgrade’ is an enriching single that showcases Western Sydney’s stunning diversity by blending a plethora of colours and sounds that celebrate love, lust and levelling up.
On the single, Ay Huncho said, “Upgrade is really just a mad summer song, Its great to start the year with banger like this — good energy only. This is easily my favourite song I’ve released yet, and I’ve got more on the way”
The music video shows Ay Huncho and his crew enjoy notoriety around Sydney for their lavish lifestyle, the music video fittingly sees Huncho and co flaunting their ability to upgrade their love interest’s quality of life — everything from expensive jewellery, luxury cars, designer clothing and most importantly, his time and attention.
Continuing Ay Huncho’s elevation within the music industry, the single has already debuted strongly at 150K streams on Spotify in the first 2 weeks of release, building great momentum with playlist support from A1, in addition to the video trending at #9 on YouTube.
Stepping it up and stepping out with a major introduction to himself, the artist has shown tremendous growth over the last 12 months, with this record firmly showcasing his vocal ability as a singer as well as a rapper further solidifying his position within the top tier bracket of Australian Hip Hop and R&B artists. Ay Huncho has previously collaborated with the likes of A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Giggs, Manu Crooks, Anfa Rose and more. Whilst it’s just the beginning, Ay Huncho is perfectly poised to continue to take his exciting movement to even higher heights in 2021.
