China’s Rising Producer CORSAK Talks Debut Single ‘Reverse’ Under Liquid State, Collab With Alan Walker : Interview
Having released debut single, “Reverse” featuring Chinese singer Ma Yinyin back in July 2018, it’s only now after Chinese New Year 2019 that Shanghai-based Chinese producer, CORSAK, is seeing the track’s true potential come to life. Due to its popularity on the short video social media platform, “Reverse” has shot up the charts in China, peaking top 5 on Chinese streaming platform and registering over 75 million streams on the platform in January (According to Sony Music Asia’s official reference); and almost unheard of feat in the market.
Recently CORSAK sat down with Billboard Radio China in Chengdu FM to talk about his debut single “Reverse”, collaborating with Alan Walker for Alan’s “Different World” single, and his upcoming plan under record label Liquid State.
“Reverse” has resonated particularly well with the local audience due to the romantic and beautiful nature of its lyrics, and on the platform alone, “it’s been featured in over 2 million UGC videos, while I have seen over 200,000 followers added to my profile since it peaked at #1 on streaming platform chart in China. Half a year after the release, the song now received 125 million Chinese streams” CORSAK said.
“ It’s been so incredible to see the reaction of all the fans to ‘Reverse’. It was nearly a year ago today when I wrote the original lyrics. To see everyone covering the song and creating all these videos with my music all over the internet has been so special. ” CORSAK said.
"When I wrote songs, I will draws my inspiration from both ancient and modern culture from my homeland China,” CORSAK shared, “And it’s so honour to become the first Chinese act signing to Liquid State”, the joint venture formed between Tencent Music Entertainment and Sony Music Entertainment last year.
In addition, CORSAK was recently part of a #DifferentWorld viral, and which coincided with the release of his ‘Different World’ collaboration with Alan Walker, K-391 and Sofia Carson.
With a combined 200 million global streams across two songs, it’s been a fast start for CORSAK but he has promised much more over the coming months, with a host of brand new releases and remixes primed for release. Check out the full Mandarin interview on Billboard Radio China.
