These Nights is an exercise in 80s-era R&B with vintage disco production perfect for late night cruising. A song about living for the nighttime and seizing the moment with a new love, These Nights features passionate modulated crooning from Rich Brian (his first release since sophomore album The Sailor) and silky smooth vocals in both English and Korean from CHUNG HA. It also marks the first time the K-Pop sensation has collaborated with 88rising.
These Nights marks the perfect time for a collaboration between both artists, adding to an already incredible year for both Rich Brian and CHUNG HA. Rich Brian stunned the internet with his Dave Meyers-directed video for Yellow, earned praise from the President of Indonesia during a meeting at the Presidential Palace, and recently began his global headlining tour. In January, CHUNG HA had a #1 on Korea’s KPop Hot 100 Chart and a #6 on Billboard’s World Digital Sales Chart with her Gotta Go single. While this past June saw CHUNG HA release her latest EP Flourishing with her lead single Snapping charting at #3 on Korea’s KPop Hot 100 and #9 on Billboard’s World Digital Sales chart. Already a multi-platinum artist in Korea and the 4th most searched K-pop female idol on YouTube, her music has amassed over 1B+ streams across platforms worldwide. Following the release of his critically acclaimed album The Sailor, Brian makes his debut on 88rising’s forthcoming Head In The Clouds II project with These Nights.
Accompanying the song is a music video for These Nights. Directed by Mike La Burt (Joji’s “WANTED U”, Rich Brian – “Who That Be”), the video is a neon-tinged motorcycle drama with infectious head bobs, luxurious mullets, and tongue-in-cheek choreography.
