Last update: 30/09/2019

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 30 (Bernama) -- Singer Ezad Lazim is paying homage to the 80’s style pop songs with his rendition of ‘Jika Kau Bercinta Lagi’, made popular by 80s iconic band, the Alleycats.

Formed in 1969, Alleycats was wildly popular in the 80s and 90s with gems such as ‘Andainya Aku Pergi Dulu’, ‘Sekuntum Mawar Merah Sebuah Puisi’, ‘Kisah Kau dan Aku’ and ‘Hingga Akhir Nanti’.

‘Jika Kau Bercinta Lagi’ was the band’s first single written by Datuk M.Nasir, produced in 1979.

Ezad performs the song in a duet with a newcomer, Fieza Hanis, it said in a statement.

Syed ENV, a composer known for writing and arranging music for Dayang Nurfaizah, is the music arranger for this updated version, with Boon Tan of Broadway Nu Music as the producer.

Retaining the 80s famous sound, the music video of the duet also bears some semblance to the era’s music videos, in honour of the band that had successfully made a mark in the decade.

The new version also includes a rap verse, performed by Fieza Hanis.

The music video can be found on Broadway NuMusic Youtube channel.

Meanwhile, Fieza Hanis Zalalludin, 21, is one of the new talents under Broadway Entertainment.

Her father, known as Alang, was the vocalist for rock group SYJ, a band popular in the 80s Battle of the Bands era.
