Rising R&B singer-songwriter thuy releases her new single “inhibitions”, featuring rapper P-Lo which will be featured on the deluxe version of her EP ‘i hope u see this’– slated to arrive spring 2022. Last month, thuy teased the release of “inhibitions” when she dropped the visual for “figured u out”lifted from her debut EP, which amassed over 28 million global streams and earned praise from major publications and tastemakers across Asia, including SEA Today News, Billboard Indonesia and Nylon Manila.
“‘inhibitions’ is a fun and playful song letting someone know that they are the only one who does it for them.” says thuy. “There may be a lot of people or interests who come at me and take their shot but at the end of the day those other people can’t do it like them. So they are the only one you want to give your attention to.”
The vibrant R&B artist of Vietnamese descent is determined to stand out in the world of pop music. She grew up surrounded by music and at the age of 9, knew she wanted to be a pop star. However, with no exemplars to look up to who looked like her, thuy traded her musical hopes for a career in medicine. After a few lacklustre years in the medical field followed by a chance visit to a studio, thuy finally saw what a professional career in music could look like.
Since then, the now Los Angeles-based artist has released several records showcasing her angelic vocals, skilful songwriting, and modern R&B stylings. Having amassed over 85 million global streams across her catalogue and garnered support from premier international publications including Billboard, Paper and Harper’s Bazaar, Thuy proves that her celestial voice and knack for earworm melodies are here to stay.
Currently, her Top 10 Streaming Markets worldwide include Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan.
