The cover, titled ‘I Do Not’, was issued yesterday (January 14) via Tabudlo’s YouTube channel.
While Billkin’s ‘IXO’ – released in September last year – sees the Thai singer put himself in the shoes of a man hopelessly in love with a girl who doesn’t know, Tabudlo adds a wry sense of self-awareness as he delivers lyrics like “My happiness comes from / Looking at you everyday / But baby between us, I don’t know if you know me yet”.
He continues, “I’ll just treasure you and your beauty inside my heart / I know it’s my fault that I don’t have any guts / I want to tell you how I feel”.

Tabudlo and Billkin recently collaborated together at the live-streamed BYE 2021 concert, which was held on New Year’s Eve. The duo performed Tabudlo’s song ‘Give Me Your Forever’ virtually, with Tabudlo performing in a dark room lit by moody pink lights as Billkin joined him from a separate recording studio.
Tabudlo will embark on an eight-leg US tour in April alongside rock band December Avenue. Meanwhile, the 22-year-old Billkin – real name Putthipong Assaratanakul – was named one of Thailand’s most-streamed local artists on Spotify last year.
