It's hard to be confident sometimes, I wanted to make a song that could help with that. said ALYPH.

I needed people who are unapologetic about who they are and at the same time, had the scars and trophies to show for. She fits the character perfectly. ALYPH added.

SWIPE's official music video is now officially launched on the Youtube platform on 28th October 2022 with more than 400,000 views since it premiered on this platform. 

It is indeed an eye-catching music video that was directed by Malaysian creative director and cultural force Shahrin Bahar who has previously worked with ALYPH's hip-hop peers. 

For the record, ALYPH who usually works on all facets of his projects alone found that working with a singular creative mind like Shahrin, it meant he had to let go and let give way for Shahrin to unleash his creativity in this music video.

I'm so used to wanting to handle everything by myself but this time I had ideas that didn't make it and more. That's what I learnt from working with an entire team and making sure everyone is on the same page including DSV. That was also quite challenging, but ultimately rewarding. ALPHY concluded.

Biar takde yang ku kesali

Kalau tak, confirm takle pergi

Aku nak susah kan hidup kau? Tak
Kau da terbiasa orang dengar cakap
Kau da leka, itu sebab kau stuck
Bagi otak, aku lap, aku wipe

Bagi lega, lega
Lega lega lega lega lega

Pada hujung hari
Aku susun sepuluh jari
Moga yang tak bersetuju akan buka hati

ALYPH and Datuk Seri Vida Made SWIPE Unique At Its Own Way


From humble beginnings to being one of the most successful hitmakers in Southeast Asia, ALYPH's story is an exceptional one. The Singapore-born rapper, producer and songwriter cast a long and storied shadow in Southeast Asia, reaching a pinnacle in his career where every tune he touches turns to gold. 

The song he last produced and co-wrote with K-Clique, Mimpi, fast became one of the biggest songs to shake Malaysian hip hop, standing at 45 million views on the Music Video to date. 

With a total of 218 million views and 45 million streams on the song he's produced, written, and performed, ALYPH's role in defining hip-hop in Malaysia and Singapore today is indisputable. 

ALYPH emerged with one of Singapore's most influential hip-hop duos, SleeQ, going on to establish himself as a solo artist and producer that has blessed the music of a sprawling list of icons such as Joe Flizzow, Kaka Azraff, K-Clique, Zizan Razak, De Fam and Adira. 

ALYPH's upward trajectory began in the place that matters most: Home. 

Born into a family that valued music and the arts, his love for music was amplified by one defining encounter, Discovering the pioneering Malaysian hip-hop duo, TooPhat. 

Watching the air and condenser on display when Too Phat performed on television showed ALYPH that hip hop could shape and inform local identity. It could come from home, be about home and be meaningful to the people at home. 

Over the years, ALYPH has developed his distinct production alias Magic Potions, risen to the forefront of made-in-Singapore hip hop with SleeQ's breakout 'Pilihlah Aku', and blazed his artistry across borders.
