Stay Home membawa mesej yang teguh bahawa jarak sosial tidak bermaksud menjarakkan emosi kita. Projek ini menyoroti bagaimana muzik dapat terus hidup dengan kaedah digital dan kolaborasi melalui teknologi.

Stay Home - Multi Artist Collage

Calvin Wong, Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif Universal Music Asia Tenggara menjelaskan:

“Kami sangat teruja dengan inisiatif ini, yang memperlihatkan semangat para artis dan eksekutif muzik bekerjasama secara harmoni dalam waktu yang singkat untuk menghasilkan karya yang luar biasa.

Kami amat berbangga dengan 14 artis ini yang mewakili generasi baru rakyat Singapura dalam mengharungi cabaran kala ini.

Saya juga ingin mengucapkan terima kasih kepada semua rakan media kami kerana kerap memberikan pendedahan untuk lagu ini,”

– Calvin Wong

Terinspirasi dengan #JanganKeluar versi Malaysia, single yang dikeluarkan sebagai reaksi terhadap inisiatif PKP negara mereka, Stay Home adalah interpretasi lagu tersebut untuk rakyat Singapura. Walaupun mengekalkan lagu asal, versi Singapura ini mengolah semua baris melodi dan paduan suara untuk menyuntik kreativiti tersendiri, bagi menghasilkan persembahan yang unik untuk Singapura.

Kesemua artis menulis dan merakam single serta muzik video dari rumah masing-masing, dan berjaya menghabiskan projek ini dalam masa 11 hari.

Lagu ini juga menampilkan empat bahasa yang berbeza iaitu Bahasa Inggeris, Mandarin, Melayu & Tamil bagi meraikan masyarakat berbilang kaum di Singapura. Muzik video ini memperlihatkan bagaimana para artis ini menyibukkan diri mereka di rumah dan berharap dapat mempengaruhi lebih ramai orang untuk memainkan peranan mereka bagi menjayakan “Circuit Breaker” ini dengan memberi komitmen untuk tetap di rumah.

Stay Home akan dilancarkan oleh Universal Music Singapore pada jam 9 pagi, Jumaat, 24 April 2020. Lagu ini boleh didapati di semua platform striming utama termasuk Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music dan KKBox pada jam 9 pagi dan di stesen radio Mediacorp dan MeListen antara jam 9 – 10 pagi.

Muzik video rasmi untuk tayangan perdana di YouTube pada jam 8 malam pada hari yang sama akan turut memberi peluang kepada para peminat untuk berinteraksi secara langsung dengan 14 artis yang terlibat dalam projek ini.

Stay Home A Special Project To Encourage Singaporeans To Stay Home

Universal Music Group brings together 14 talented Singaporean artists from different ethnicities and background to create Stay Home, a poignant track that drives the message of strength in unity, to show support for nationwide efforts to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic. The single features 14 artists which includes Charlie Lim, Yung Raja, Fariz Jabba, ShiGGa Shay, Alif, ABANGSAPAU, Tosh Rock, Iman, Aisyah Aziz, Shye, Zadon, YAØ, Hashy and Dee Kosh.

Stay Home conveys a powerful message that social distancing does not mean emotional distancing. This project highlights how music can be kept alive through digital means and collaborations made possible through technology. With music being a universal language, this project aims to give Singaporeans comfort through the voices of the 14 artists and motivation to stay strong through the song’s lyrics.

Calvin Wong, CEO of Universal Music South East Asia quoted, “We are most excited about this initiative, which showcases the passion of the artists and music executives who worked together cohesively in record time to create an amazing body of work. We are proud of these 14 artists who represent the new generation of Singaporeans who are stepping up to today’s challenges. I would also like to thank all our media partners for giving this song the biggestexposure possible”.

Inspired and in collaboration with Malaysia’s version of #JanganKeluar, a single that was released in response to their country’s MCO initiative, Stay Home is a re-interpretation of the song for Singaporeans.

While keeping to the original song, the Singapore version has completely re-structured all the melody lines and chorus to inject its own brand of creativity, transforming it into a rendition unique to Singapore. The artists wrote, recorded, and filmed the single and music video from home, completing the project within a short span of 11 days.

The song also features the four different languages including English, Mandarin, Malay & Tamil celebrated in our multi-racial society. The music video showcases how these artists have been keeping themselves busy at home and hope to encourage more people to play their part in making this “Circuit Breaker” a success by committing to staying at home.

Stay Home will be released by Universal Music Singapore at 9am, Friday, 24th April, 2020. The song will be available on all key streaming platforms including Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music and KKBox at 9am alongside Mediacorp radio stations and MeListen between 9 – 10am. The official music video will premiere at 8pm that same day on YouTube along with a live chat, giving Singaporeans the chance to interact in real-time with the 14 artists involved with the project.

It’s invisible, it’s in the air Unpredictable, anything could happen Know you’re not alone
Even when you’re locked in
Together we can stop it

(Yung Raja)

Prayer hands up when we stayin’ inside
For the ones puttin their uyir (life) on the line Manithanukkul kadavul irikindrar

Keep your head high and your kudumbam (family) close Gotta know ithaiyum naam kadappom
(Gotta know this too shall pass)

打 开了眼 呆在家一整天

(I open my eyes I’m staying home again)

(Ive been watching the same shows again and again)
播歌跳舞够力够力
(Play a song and dance to the beat)
屁股扭扭看也看不腻
(Shake that body I don’t get sick of it)
I’m living the time 在这隔离的时间 I’m counting the minutes to 出门去绕
I’m living the time during the quarantine and I’m counting the minutes to go out again 但 吃的饱 睡得好 喝到妙 还算是 吉多凶少
(But we been eating well, sleeping well, drinking well and we count our blessings)

(Charlie Lim)

It’s enough to stay inside
To save some lives, for us to thrive
It’s a long-drawn battle we’re in
But we’re bigger than this, we’re bigger than this

After the rain it’ll be clear
Matter of time before it disappears
