Asiatic Records’ golden child, RAMENGVRL, made a splash last week dropping her tongue-in-cheek track ‘Onto The Next’, which speaks on the experience of moving on from a relationship that wasn’t worth the time - we’ve all been there. With the backing of strong listenership on DSPs, being named one of Spotify’s EQUAL artists, charting at #5 on LiFTED’s Top Asian Rappers, penning a collaboration with H1GHR Music’s Ph-1, featured in Forbes Indonesia’s 30 Under 30, an official remix for JVKE’s viral hit and not to mention winning several AMI Awards in 2021, RAMENGVRL remains to be unmistakably one to watch.

Her latest addition ‘Onto The Next’ arrived on Friday 10th of June and has already picked up wide-spread praise and support, with more than 300,000 combined hits online and over two million views on TikTok. Now to add fuel to the fire, she has unveiled the official music video for the single along with the announcement of a string of tour dates across Indonesia and several festival slots.

Behind the shady lyrics of “Onto The Next” is a woman who exudes optimism post-breakup, and while she is unapologetically aware of her self-worth - despite the songs context, about having a partner who wasn’t worth her time nor energy with the video we can reveal it was not about her latest relationship, as the newly dropped music video features her actual ex-boyfriend playfully playing the role of her ex in the Music Video storyline. In the clip set at a party with flashbacks to a younger more naive self, now her ex is seen trying to get her back but is buffed away because she has found a new man.

Ramengvrl’s single comes off the back of being announced on the line up for KV Fest in Jakarta in August alongside Korean artist Jessi - know for her viral hit ‘Zoom’ and a collaboration with PSY as well as B.I and fellow Indonesian R&B icon Afgan. On top of that she’s also on the bill for Indonesian Hip-Hop festival FLAVS in September, but fans don’t have to wait that long to catch her live as she has kicked off the first run of headline tour dates around Indonesia presented by Martell. Over the coming weeks she’ll touch down in 4 cities across the country, and with more dates to be announced both locally and internationally Ramengvrl is not showing any signs of slowing down.
