Angie Tan, Head of JOOX Malaysia, said, “Malaysians’ love for music has become more and more apparent through the rise of music streaming, and especially when JOOX launched its Karaoke feature, giving fans more ways to express their love for their favourite songs and artists. As we enter a new year, JOOX is excited to look back and celebrate the biggest hits and brightest stars of the past year, as chosen by the country’s passionate music lovers.”
To add to the buzz on who the big award winners will be, the list of 2021’s year-end nominees has provided a lot of exciting insights. Amongst the Top Local Artists’ nominees – Dato’ Sri Siti Nurhaliza, Ukays, and XPDC – prove that more established artists are still among fans’ favourites, while emerging young artists such as Haqiem Rusli and Naim Daniel climb up the list. Furthermore, the latest releases from young and popular artists like Tajul & Afieq Shazwan, Asyraf Nasir and Iman Troye have been picked as some of Malaysia’s top favourite tracks, while two original soundtrack (Eric Chou – You Don’t Belong to Me [“More than Blue” OST] & Xu Kai & Cheng Xiao – Soulmate [“Falling Into Your Smile” OST]) cuts appear in this year’s list of top International Songs, indicating that Malaysian music lovers really enjoy TV shows’ musical tracks.
Three Korean artists, LISA, BTS and TWICE, getting nominated in the Top 5 International Hits category perfectly illustrate the worldwide impact K-Pop is consistently making, with LISA’s song titled “MONEY” having topped the JOOX English Top Hits Chart for 13 weeks straight (and counting). Moreover, Eric Chou’s song has been nominated for the second time, and Adele’s track “Easy on Me” rose into the Top 10 rank in the JOOX English Top Hits Chart just a week after it was released, and enjoyed a long run at the top of the chart till date.
