Last spotted making an appearance in Crap Date's gloriously DIY video for 'Too Late', NZ / Persian rapper CHAII steps back into the spotlight with 'Trouble'. Deploying booming depth-charge bass and steely-eyed reflective wordplay, the rising star's third single comes along with a self-directed video offering a glimpse of CHAII's own childhood growing up in the Middle East, completing a trilogy of clips filmed in Oman, originally kicked off by breakout hit 'Digebasse'. CHAII opened up about the personal themes explored on her Frank Keys-produced latest release...

“The song represents strength, having fun and having your friends and family with you... It was time to not only write a song about growing up in the Middle East but also show a glimpse of my childhood through a music video. Overall I aimed to keep the song and video light and fun, with deeper layers to it too.

I wanted to capture my life as a kid who grew up in Iran... She does all the awesome activities I did as a kid in Iran: playing soccer in the streets; bike riding; walking by myself; listening to music on my cassette player; climbing trees; swimming in the river… Filming it was very surreal, like going back in a time capsule and revisiting my childhood. I wanted to simply show a glimpse of my childhood, who I was and who I grew to be. You just never know where you’ll end up in the world and what you’d be doing”.

'Trouble' is available on all major streaming services via BMG.
