TODAY, 4th February 2022, 19-year-old Indonesian rising rapper, singer and producer Warren Hue releases his new track and video for RUNAWAY W ME via 88rising, the first release from his forthcoming album Boy of the Year.

Before proceeding, you may want to know who is Warren Hue, especially for those who are still unaware of this person.

Warren Hue stands out from the pack with his ever-evolving sound, establishing a truly original presence by fusing R&B, house, electronic and industrial genres into a heady cocktail of alternative hip-hop. 

Writing and releasing music from his bedroom since the age of 14, the 19-year-old is becoming as popular as he is prolific, racking up millions of streams on Spotify, including over 3 million for his infectiously fun single “candy choppa.”

Releasing his first full project SUGARTOWN in 2019, the 9-track project touched on topics both personal and universal.


Fast forward to December 2020, Hue first linked with 88rising to perform at the virtual Double Happiness Winter Wonder Festival alongside such notable Asian artists as NxWorries (Anderson .Paak x Knxwledge), CHUNG HA, Ardhito Pramono, and ATEEZ

Since then, Hue has landed brand integrations and syncs with Microsoft and Samsung, appeared on the single “California” with Rich Brian and NIKI from the 88rising collaboration album “Head in the Clouds 3,” recently appeared on 6 tracks on the Marvel Shang-Chi Soundtrack, most notably “Lazy Susan” with Rich Brian and 21 Savage, and performed at 88rising’s Head in the Clouds Festival at the Rose Bowl in November.

And to date, its RUNAWAY W ME”, an alternative hip-hop track produced by longtime collaborator South Korean producer, Chasu. 

The production features a climactic drop that builds up an energetic guitar solo leading into an infectious hook by Warren. 

On the track, Warren tries to navigate through this new life he’s living in Los Angeles and searches for solitude with his relationships, looking to “run away” from some of the stress that comes with the life he’s pursuing. 

The track is accompanied by a psychedelic visual that reflects this sentiment, directed and edited by Mattias Russo-Larsson of "coming of age."

About the track, Warren says “’RUNAWAY W ME’ is a song that talks about escaping my current lifestyle in Los Angeles and finding the balance between love and music. It’s a love song that mixes in elements of Hyper-pop, trap and hip hop. The process of creating this song was super interesting because we changed the bpm 5 times and used interesting vocal chains to create a psychedelic effect.”

Warren debuted the track in front of 30,000 fans at the finale of the 2021 Head In The Clouds Festival in Pasadena, California. 

“RUNAWAY W ME” follows the release of single “WEST,” a mesmerizing track with a reel-to-reel tape loop that feels equal parts nostalgic and triumphant. 

He has been named an artist to watch for 2022 by NME, Bandwagon, and Ones to Watch, who hailed him as a “sonic chameleon [that] approaches music with a flexibility that is nothing short of infectious.” 

Most recently, Warren Hue was featured on 88rising labelmate Rich Brian’s Brightside EP on high energy track “Getcho Mans” that received critical praise from Complex, Pitchfork, Hot New Hip Hop, UPROXX, and more.

In less than a year, Warren Hue has grown from hometown hero to international sensation - featuring prominently in Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi & The Legend of the Ten Rings soundtrack, the pages of The New York Times, and in brand endorsements from Samsung and Microsoft. 

Hue emerged in early 2021 with his debut release with the pioneering Asian music collective 88rising, “omomo punk.”  Listen and watch below:

Upon release the track was playlisted on Spotify’s “New Music Friday” in 13 countries including the US, Indonesia and more. 

Additional playlisting includes Apple Music New Music Daily in 11 markets, Fresh Waves and New This Week. 

In May, Hue released “Too Many Tears,” the lead single from upcoming collaboration album Head in the Clouds 3 that features 88rising artists and more. 

The release was accompanied by the launch of TOOMANYTEARS.AI, where 88rising and Microsoft partnered to develop an audio-visual experience using AI to analyze video of the skyline of the San Gabriel Valley and remix stems from the track.
