Part of the excitement of ‘balik kampung’ is belting out to your favourite songs. Since it’s the Raya week, everyone would have lined up their favourite tunes to accompany them on the long drive home.
However, that can grow old and boring quickly, especially when the playlist repeats itself.
If you’re looking for something different from the usual, why not mix up the Raya playlist a little with some of these new songs?
Here are some of the new Raya songs, in no particular order:
1. SOG x Shila Amzah – Seikhlas Hati
Local rock group SOG and Shila Amzah brought Malaysian listeners a fresh rock n roll Raya song. Most netizens welcomed the unique take, and they loved the flute solo right in the middle of the chorus. While it certainly surprised some who are more used to the traditional Raya songs, Seikhlas Hati definitely brought a different level of energetic Raya vibes.
2. DOLLA x Hael Husaini – Suara Lebaran Kita
The local all-girl group DOLLA is popular for their edgy sounds and styles. Thus, it’s no surprise that Suara Lebaran Kita puzzled listeners when it first dropped. Despite this, netizens appreciated that the song is versatile and relatable to all Malaysians who couldn’t celebrate the festivities for the past year. Suara Lebaran Kita brings forth a different cheerful energy to the festivities with its upbeat and catchy tune.
3. Yonnyboii, Luca Sickta, Kmy Kmo, Abubakarxli, Siqma, ASYRAF NASIR – Rap Der Raya
Rap Der Raya gives a laidback yet cheerful vibe so it’ll definitely make the drive home feel calmer and happier too. You’ll wish for the traffic jam to disperse because the song talks about getting ready for the Raya festivities with your loved ones.
4. Kmy Kmo, Luca Sickta, Siqma, Asyraf Nasir and Yonnyboii – Balik Kampung (Remix)
Universal Music Malaysia has given the evergreen Raya song by the late Datuk Sudirman Arshad a remix. Several local artists gave the iconic song a hip hop touch, with a re-arrangement by rapper Luca Sickta.
5. Man Bai – Kau Ilhamku di Hari Raya
Man Bai’s Kau Ilhamku has been a hit until now since its release in 1995. For this year, the song has been given an updated tune via a mashup with Saloma’s Selamat Hari Raya. Having two iconic songs in one is definitely a special treat for listeners of all ages. The mashup is produced by producer and singer-songwriter Amylea Azizan.
6. Bunga Isme – Cerita Kita Bersama
The musical accompaniment in Cerita Kita Bersama gives the spoken word performance a rap-like quality to it. Local rapper Bunga Isme’s heartfelt rap song sets the tone for a meaningful celebration this Raya. The song was inspired by her memories of Ramadan and Hari Raya celebrations and it encapsulates the importance of family ties and a myriad of emotions.
7. Nana Sheme – R.A.Y.A.
R.A.Y.A. encapsulates the excitement to balik kampung after being under MCO for the past two years. The song evokes a sentimental mood too because the Sarawakian singer herself is abroad this Raya.
