The man with mesmerising vocals and soulful crooner, much has been said to describe Charlie Lim.

He is arguably one of Singapore’s talented musicians with an ability to make fans – and we don’t just mean the female majority – swoon at his feet.

2018 has truly been a landmark year for this talented musician.

CHECK-HOOK

Following his incredible take on ‘We Are Singapore’ for this year’s National Day Parade, he has gone through an extensive period of recording to release CHECK-HOOK, his newest album that was just out today (12 October).

It’s a real bop by the way. Listen to it here.

Chills, literal chills.

This seven-track album features Charlie experimenting with electronica while at the same time incorporating the familiar tunes that he is known for. This album features guest appearances by .gif’s Weish and up-and-coming rappers, Fariz Jabba and Yung Raja.
