Almost a year after dropping his highly-successful debut single “FWB”, singer-songwriter NYK is ready and raring to give fans a taste of his latest track titled “Make It On Me”.
Touted as the prequel to “FWB”, NYK says that the tune is a boy-meets-girl narrative in the making, a modern-day thrill of a guy who meets a love interest in a club, just as he’s getting tired of the party scene.
Produced in Sweden by Andrei Amartinesei and Putte Pettersson who have previously worked with EXO and Isyana Sarasvati, NYK says that it took all of an hour to finish the song: “Pontus (Putte Pettersson) whipped up a really catchy baseline, and we started vibing immediately. The chorus, initially, was supposed to be a filler, but I suggested making it the hook and it was the perfect fit.”

In addition to NYK’s vocals, Malaysian rapper Airliftz is also featured on the track. The resulting track is an accentuation of both artists’ best attributes; steeped in the rinse-repeat routine of finding new love when you least expect it, NYK’s R&B-flecked vocals sit front and centre, augmented by adventurous production and Airliftz’s spitfire rap. Both artists had considered working on a collaboration together, and when the beat was produced, NYK says he could see no one but Airliftz working on “Make It On Me” with him.
“I sent him the track and he came back to me with a complete verse almost immediately. We basically had an almost-finished product even before I left Sweden,” says NYK.
This second release is another peek into what is to come with NYK’s much-anticipated EP. Each song in the EP, according to NYK, is in chronological order, telling a story about the different stages of a relationship between two people.
NYK also adds that each song on the upcoming EP sounds different from the last. Drawing inspiration from various albums by artists such as The 1975, Mura Masa and The Weeknd.
