Asian-American singer-songwriter and rapper Star2 is utilizing his sizzling singles to win hearts! His music moves listeners with its effortless blends of pop, R&B, and hip-hop for an enthralling sound immersion. He lures listeners in as he was raised in adversity and draws inspiration from his struggles to create music that is bold, high-spirited, and soulful.
Bringing it back to the basics, Star2 is a true survivor. Born into a refugee camp in Thailand, Star knows everything about hard work and dedication. His family walked over 500 miles through the jungle to escape Burmese soldiers. The ones who attacked and burned down their village when he was a child. Star2 (and his family) have faced enormous adversity and racial opposition for generations as Karens (Kuh-ren), a minority group that the Myanmar government has attempted to destroy.
Unfortunately growing up without his parents by his side, his life quickly changed for the better as his grandmother was chosen in a lottery to be able to migrate to the United States. In doing so, Star2 and his grandmother relocate to San Diego to start a new life. Admittedly, it was not an easy one. Growing up in the city, his family struggled financially while sharing a home with an uncle who was addicted to drugs.
As a result, he was overwhelmed and overstimulated as he adjusted to life in a new world with cars, electricity, and paved roads. However, Star2 found solace in music as a teen. Honing himself into a multifaceted musician, he began to rap, sing, pen his own music, and perform. While perfecting his craft, Star2 developed his own musical style. A unique style with winning hooks, rich harmonies, and distinctly progressive R&B soundscapes. In addition to a diverse set of influences including Justin Bieber, Tyga, and Chris Brown, amongst others.
Star2 Introduces “New Me”
Showcasing his struggles turned triumph, the emerging emcee and soulful singer displays he’s a changed man. For his most recent release, he returns with a “New Me” featuring Soulja Boy and Luh Kel. The fresh new feature serves as an audio dedicated to his new lifestyle and the man he’s becoming. In fact, the rising rhymer unveils the accompanying visuals that really bring the audio to life.
For its official music video, fans pull up to Star2 hosting a pool party with a backyard full of frolicking, thong-wearing beauties in a sleek, multi-million-dollar mansion. The fired up females dance across the screen as they spray whipped cream on each other. Also, they’re seen splashing Luh Kel and Star2 in a Jacuzzi full of hundred dollar bills before the scene switches to them twerking alongside Big Draco in his orange Lambo. Don’t believe me?
