Jannine Weigl releases new song 'Passcode'

09/19/2020 12:53:31 AM

Thai-German pop sensation Jannine Wiegel has recently released her new single 'Passcode' via the innovative new label called RedRecords.

Produced by the Grammy-nominated record producer Tommy Brown, renowned for his work with Ariana Grande, Chris Brown, Fifth Harmony, and more, ‘Passcode’ is a euphoric dance-pop anthem that boasts a sort of irresistible chorus that’s bound to get stuck in your head. This potentially-LSS track is co-written by  Canadian singer-songwriter Jessie Reyez.

Aside from the song itself, Weigl's new release comes with the accompanying the music video that features some of Malaysia and Thailand’s biggest TikTok influencers, shot and produced on location at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and directed by Philip Rom Kulleh.

“I’m so excited for everyone to hear ‘Passcode’,” said Weigl. “I love that it captures my personality perfectly – fun and bubbly, but with a little bit of an edge.”

The 23-year old Jannine Weigel is an artist who connects on a universal scale at the same time as forming an intimate bond with her fans. Her infectious personality has already helped her reach eye-popping numbers on social media. As of posting, the singer-influencer-model has 3.6 million subscribers on YouTube, 3.2 million followers on Facebook, 1.7 million on Instagram, and more than 500,000 on TikTok. She’s an artistic force of nature. Although she has only just turned 20, Weigel has already had a successful career as an actor, model, and influencer. But singing has always been her biggest passion. 

“Singing is what truly makes me happy,” she says. “I love how music can affect people and how a song can evoke raw emotions in all of us.”

Born in Steinfurt, Germany, the then-budding superstar moved to Thailand when she was 10. From there, Weigl made her first musical waves when, as a teenager, she would upload cover versions of her favorite songs to her YouTube channel. A mix of her natural charisma and that mesmerizing voice soon found a huge audience and Weigel became the first Thai singer to receive YouTube’s highly-coveted Gold Button.

Weigel is an apt first signing for RedRecords, the exciting new joint venture between AirAsia and Universal Music Group. The label is committed to shining a light on the talent that lies within ASEAN, devoted to developing Asian artists and putting Asian pop music on a global platform. It’s a region full of pop superstars waiting to be heard. 

“When [CEO of AirAsia Group] Tony Fernandes and I became aware of Jannine, our backgrounds in music and entertainment told us that this was an artist primed for worldwide success.” said RedRecords CEO Hassan Choudhury. “With the ambition, we have for RedRecords, along with the extensive global marketing resources at our disposal, Jannine was the obvious choice as our first signing,” said Choudhury.

In the US, RedRecords have partnered with iconic label Def Jam Recordings, where artists such as Kanye West, Justin Bieber, and Alessia Cara are continuing its illustrious history, to release Jannine’s music. It’s the sort of lineage to which Weigel belongs. “I want to be able to inspire people out there. I feel like I’m proof that as long as you never give up, anyone can have a shot at achieving their dreams, no matter where they come from.” 

It's safe to say that a daring new talent in pop music has arrived, and the new wave of Asian pop music has finally arrived. Indeed, a start for both Weigl and RedRecords.
