Anees has recently taken Tik Tok and social media by storm with his “Sun and Moon” snippet and official open verse challenge. Filipino singer J Roa joined the open verse challenge and his version was dope enough that it was selected to be the official remix! The Ex Battalion affiliated singer took to his IG to share his thoughts on hopping on the song and collaborating with Anees.
While Tik Tok may have heard the unofficial version first, the world can now hear the official remix on Anees’ YouTube page. It’s such a crazy feeling to see Tagalog lyrics on one of the biggest songs from Tik Tok this year!
In additional “Sun and Moon” news, Anees has just dropped the official music video for the original version of the song. Check out the original music video and official remix video below!
