Zamaera has recorded a jingle for Old Town White Coffee in which she raps about the restaurant chain’s latest menu in four languages.
The Malaysian rapper released the ditty last night (August 11) with a breezy two-minute video directed by Syed Zamaril. The collaboration was first teased last Wednesday (August 5) with a photo of the ‘Helly Kelly’ rapper posing with a plate of nasi lemak.
They have a new menu and I've got bars to serve ! #OLDTOWNxZAMAERA dropping some new heat this 11.08.20. Can you guess the title ? I'll give you a clue ➡️ #KDMD@oldtownwhitecoffee
Titled ‘Kopi Dulu, Makan Dulu’ — translated literally as “Coffee First, Eat First” — the song’s promotional video opens with a relatable segment on COVID guidelines for dining out. it also features iconic national dishes and a sprightly Zamaera dancing with customers.
On the track, Zamaera effortlessly switches between verses written in English, Malay, Tamil, and Mandarin – marking her first time rapping in four languages, she noted. “I can’t make up my mind / Can you recommend? / He said you can build your own / Nasi lemak with your friend,” she raps. “What? Is this new? / You mean I can have chicken rendang and ayam berempah too?”

The video comes after Zamaera’s feature on RRILEY’s song ‘Fire’, a standout from the Singaporean singer’s debut EP, ‘Alpha’, released August 7.
