In 2021, FORCEPARKBOIS rose to fame across the region with their February single “Lotus”, which was heavily remixed by artists from Southeast Asia. Dinho, Ichu, Offgrid and SonaOne were among those who jumped on the Malaysian remix, and were quickly followed by a Singaporean remix with Fariz Jabba, Akeem Jahat, OmarKENOBI, YHB Sleepsalot and Khally.

In June, Malaysian rapper Zamaera shared her own remix, and several Brunei rappers dropped their own version of the track. The most recent remix, led by Jay Park and his label H1ghr Music, featured a slew of South Korean rap talent: JMIN, BIG Naughty, pH-1, TRADE L, Woodie Gochild, JAY B and Park Hyeon-jin .

FORCEPARKBOIS recently made their major debut for Warner Music Malaysia with the single “SHEESSH FLOW” in October, which was also their fifth single of the year. ‘BLESSTHEFORCE’ and ‘Lotus’ were released in February, followed by the single and music video for ‘ULTRA’ in June and ‘WOOSH!’ end of July.

‘Lotus’ is nominated for Best Asian Song at the 2022 BandLab NME Awards alongside tracks by Yeule, Grrrl Gang, Warren Hue and Pyra. This is the first year that award categories celebrating the best of Southeast Asia have been included in the awards. The winners of the Asian categories will be announced early next year, with the awards ceremony to be held in London in March.
