Indonesian-American singer Stephanie Poetri joins Dannieboi for a myxCLUSIVE and you'll love her 3000. Dannie said he was a little nervous because he was excited to meet her. It's okay, we were all fangirling along too! She takes us along her musical journey so far and how she's been able to make music during the lockdown with her latest song Selfish.
You may have heard Stephanie's music thru 88Rising, but she tells Dannie that she initially didn't want to be an artist. She comes from a musical family as her mom Titi DJ is also a pop singer and her dad is a music teacher. Just like all kids, she wanted to rebel against her parents but the power of music was too strong. After graduating, "I put out Appreciate which I didn't expect much to happen and the same with I Love You 3000." Fast forward to I Love You 3000 hitting #2 on the Asian charts and helping her continue in music.
"It was the song right before I was going to take a break in music. I wanted to go back to school and take a gap year. I already got into a school and realized that I wanted to pursue music."
Her latest single, Selfish came about during quarantine. She wanted an upbeat, acoustic song with a darker sound. Stephanie describes the song as having a crush on someone but it's not yet official so do you have the right to be jealous? Anyone in a MU (mutual understanding) relationship could relate. Check out the music video to get a feel for the song and vibe along with us!
We can expect more music on the way from Stephanie in the new year. She fills us in on her upcoming EP AM:PM. It'll be released early next year with 6 tracks, 3AM songs and 3PM. A song for every mood. Also, she's excited to go back on the road and perform. The first thing she would do when the pandemic is over is to go to the Philippines, hang out with fans, and do a live show.
