If You Know Dominic Chin…You know He’s back with a Brand New Track, IYKYK

Homegrown indie artist, Dominic Chin is back with his brand new irresistible earworm, IYKYK! The abbreviation of the popular phrase “if you know, you know”, IYKYK is a dance-pop song about the hidden intimacies of a friendship and love note to one’s ride or die. One might actually find it hard to sit still whilst listening to this tune as it is an addictive anthem which celebrates the misfits who find both their tribe and acceptance.

Chin shared about how hard it is to find friends who love and accept you despite you being different, and how it was hard for him to fit in anywhere growing up. As you listen to the tune, you would recognise that Chin is heavily inspired by some of the biggest songs of the 80s, mainly Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody and Luther Vandross’s Never Too Much. The layered vocals, dynamic strings and bouncy bassline make IYKYK a catchy must-have on the dance floor. The lyrics also shout an “us against the world” outlook.

Longtime collaborators and friends of Chin, Framethefolks shot the colourful music video. Viewers can look forward to a chaotic, boldly fashion-forward and eccentric film that matches the beats and colours of the song perfectly. This video vows to put a smile on your face as you follow the journey of a group of friends dressed in bright yellow faux fur and shiny sequin pants, hoping to enlist him to be part of their clique.

IYKYK is a standalone single ahead of Chin’s upcoming album, Runway Heartbeats. It will feature four brand new songs that will be released in December and through the first half of 2023. Also, he will be holding a concert in collaboration with Singapore Street Festival to showcase his body of work thus far at Singtel Waterfront Theatre in July 2023.

IYKYK by Dominic Chin is now available for streaming on Spotify.
