Lihatlah is a single by 17 year old, singer Yazmin Aziz who not only has a mature voice fitting of an R&B artist but the appearance of a star who has been performing for years.
The singer who is of Malaysian and Filipino descent is a talent under hurr.tv and the first single was also a collaboration with Warner Music Malaysia and a composition by first season Akademi Fantasia winner, Vince Chong. Yazmin is not only a singer to watch out for in the industry this year but she should also be known as a talented lyricist for penning Lihatlah with M.Zulkifli (who has contributed to writing songs like Dato Seri Siti Nurhaliza’s Ku Milikmu)
Yazmin has represented Malaysia at the World Championship of Performing Arts, California in 2017 and won a silver medal in the junior category thus overcoming hundreds of competitors all over the world. With fluency in the Tagalog language, Yazmin went on to represent Malaysia at the Global Pinoy Singing Idol in the Philippines in February 2018 and achieved Top 6 of the best contestants in the competition.
Lihatlah is a relfection of Yazmin’s life especially her adolescence as it tells the journey and the struggle of coming-of-age but also not letting it be a barrier to realising her dreams. “Lihatlah diriku, tak selemah dulu, lihatku di sini, tanpa dirimu,” the chorus of Lihatlah, showcases the independence of the young woman and her strength in going through the days which could be relatable to listeners who may want to detach from an issue, find a solution to a problem or leave a toxic situation.
Lihatlah by Yazmin Aziz is available on all digital platforms including iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Joox, KKBox, Yonder Music, Deezer and Akazoo.
