It’s feel good, a toe tapper and the kind of track to really kick-start your week — our Model Of the Year 2020 runner-up Syakir aka Syakirrusydi takes us through his latest single, MakeUMove.

What do you do in your spare time and how does it influence your music?
Working out, keeping myself in shape & healthy. Most of the time, I’ll be in my man cave (home studio) where I sing to to myself and do covers. [laughs]

What are your favourite genres of music?
R&B, pop and ballads.

How did you start writing your latest single?
It was a random studio session with my friend from Allure Records, Danish aka Prodbydan , and he decided to play some beats. 30 minutes later, BAM! MakeUmove was born.


What inspired you to write this song? Why dancehall, actually?
As mentioned, given the fact that we’re going through a pandemic and restricted within our own homes, that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun within the comfort of our homes! Why dancehall? I just want my listeners to forget about their worries and groove to the music.


Come to think of it, where did you use to go out dancing?
To be honest, in the comfort of my home actually! I can’t really dance. I may be able to move a little but choreography? Don’t think so. If you know the Korean star Kwang Soo and have seen how he dances then that’s me. [Laughs]

Is there a favourite lyric you have for the single?
The first few line of the song where the direct translation would be, “Close your eyes & follow the beat, run away from the reality, as that is all an illusion”.


Do you have an interesting story to tell about the filming of the MV?
Interestingly, the set was filmed at a laundromat and the guys from Goodmansfilm turned the whole place into a dance floor!
