American-Chinese singer-songwriter Khalil Fong -- who was Billboard Radio China's artist of the year in 2017 -- released his new English single "Throw It Off" under his own label, Fu Music.
With his signature soulful R&B vocals over a synth-induced soundscape, Khalil delivers a minimalist zen-like message. The line "You've got to follow your heart" is not the cliché expression of following your dreams, but rather the philosophy that the human heart is inherently noble. And that If we truly listen to our conscience, we can find our best qualities within.
In that same vein, the title and hook "Throw it off" is to be detached from things that hinder our growth and realization of our higher self.
