Following the release of his debut ‘Love Tonight’ in 2016, Singaporean producer Shorya steps out of the shadows with a new single ‘5ve City’. Staying true to his roots, this sophomore release fuses his love for hip-hop and trap. Released on Thursday 5 October, he shares some thoughts on the song, “Sometimes, certain individuals can be lost in their own worlds, too consumed by their own lusts and alienating their loved ones. While I've been down this road, the protagonist in this song has gone too far beyond any help. ‘5ve City’ acts like a cautionary tale for myself.”
Primed for the clubs, this hard-hitting tune features members of Singapore’s beloved underground rap crew Mediocre Haircut Crew, mickeyLEANO and omarKENOBI. On the collaboration, the duo says, “It was a real trip to get to work on a song with Shorya. He sent us the beat with a verse on it and we really vibed with it. Hopefully, this opens up more opportunities for us to work together.”

Shorya lets us in on why he has decided on working with mickeyLEANO and omarKENOBI on this new cut, “I chose to work with them because I personally feel that they are extremely talented in writing melodies and lyrics.
