Midnasty & Cookie$ have been putting on for Bisaya hip-hop and both acts have bene rightfully tapped by Spotify to promote Filipino hip hop as part of their new initiative. Their new collaboration "Wa Na Wa" is the first of three original hip-hop songs that will be released as part of KALYE X — Spotify’s latest initiative dedicated to collaborations between artists, fans, and the community, which serves as an extension of the KALYE Hip-Hop brand to further spotlight the genre.

Pride of Dumaguete Arkho, Makoy, and Nikko of Midnasty, and Cebu pride Cookie$ take listeners to the heart of Bisaya hip-hop through "Wa Na Wa." The lyrics is a powerful message of resilience, strength, and triumph over challenges, embodying the very essence of Bisaya pride. "Wa Na Wa" is also a testament to the artists' journey and success — as they inspire listeners through their music.

“I have been dedicating my music and craft to take Bisaya hip-hop beyond Visayas, and this collaboration with Midnasty is an important step in that direction. Working with Spotify allows us to transcend boundaries and share the vibrant Bisaya culture through our music. I hope this latest track not only empowers our fans, but also create a legacy that resonates far beyond our hometown,” shares Cookie$.

Sharing how they use hip-hop as a platform for good, Midnasty shares, “Hip-hop has been an avenue for us to channel our energy into something positive. Through this exciting collaboration with Spotify, we get to introduce our unique sound to a wider audience. We want to inspire more people to embrace their passions, just like we have, and keep supporting hip-hop."

About Tiana Kocher:

Tiana Kocher is on a mission. She believes that everyone has the ability to create beautiful things, no matter who they are or where they come from. She aspires to motivate others to be unapologetically themselves.

Tiana has been on the rise ever since she dropped her first track, “Just My Type”, which hit the Top 40 Indie Chart in 2019. Adding to her resume, her music has appeared in a Cîroc commercial, the motion picture What Men Want, and led to a series of collaborations with some of music’s royalty, like T-Boz & Chili from TLC, Sage the Gemini and Faith Evans.

Growing up between her mother’s home in Manila and her father’s in Los Angeles, Tiana was determined to create something beautiful herself. Her interest in the arts led her to Cambridge where she studied acting, but the move helped reveal her true calling, music. Now, with her focus on writing and recording, Tiana is determined to hone her natural talents and share them with the world. It appears to be paying off.

What does Tiana think? Her number one lesson is “you’re put on this earth to be you.” And luckily for us, that’s exactly what she’s doing.
