James Reid has just released the music video for the remix of Hello with over 36 Asian celebrity appearances!
Amplifying his summer-bop single entitled “Hello”, James Reid by releasing a reimagined version of the song with Korean superstar Jay B of GOT7 and Taiwanese-American rapper OZI. Just two weeks after the announcement of the remix, James drops the audio track on March 11 and on March 17, a music video for the single that is set to break the internet.
James has always been an artist-driven to pushing the boundaries and championing Filipino music globally. In this collaboration, he honors Asian talent through a track that signifies the ways in which music breaks barriers set by language and the limitations of a global pandemic. Going above and beyond in bringing together local and international collaborations for the remix, James rounds up a star-studded group to sing in the music video.
The music video starts off with James in a studio which then goes into a montage of random clips from various celebrities that include Nadine Lustre, Jolianne, Liza Soberano, Enrique Gil, Maris Racal, Massiah, Mimiyuuuh, Ranz Kyle, Niana Guerrero, Ylona Garcia, Zack Tabudlo, A-Team, After The Noon’s Arthur Tan, Doojon of The Rose, Nancy of Momoland, Seori, Jay Park, Vanness Wu, Woosung, OZI, and even James and Nadine’s dog, Calcifer Dante.
“The whole project was orchestrated by my co-management, Transparent Arts, together with Careless Music and H1ghr Music. TA brought on Jay B and ØZI who I actually got to meet during my visit to LA in 2020. The big idea was a collaboration between different Asian countries.” says Reid about the project. To further promote the song, Careless Music called in friends of the label to be able to create a fun video for the remix.
“It took some time being in different countries so we kind of just let each artist do their own thing on the track.” shares Reid about the song-writing process for the remix, which took half a year to complete.
The Hello Remix is available on all major streaming platforms and the music video featuring all
celebrity guests mentioned is now up on Careless Music’s YouTube page.
