Discovering Talents Through Trends 2.0 With Universal Music

CALLING ALL ASPIRING ARTISTS IN MALAYSIA!

 

Spinnup x Universal Music Malaysia: Discovering Talents Through Trends

 

Stand a chance to win prizes worth over RM 8,000++!

 

We’re back with another round of Discovering Talents Through Trends!

 

Earlier this year, we partnered up with Universal Music Malaysia for Discovering Talents Through Trends, a cover contest to discover local musical talents. All they had to do was submit a creative cover of a song by Olivia Rodrigo, Duncan Laurence or Madison Beer & Surf Mesa and they could win prizes worth up to RM 8,000. We received spectacular submissions, and boy did they not disappoint! You can find the winners of the first edition here for some inspo for your submission.

 

This time, along with Universal Music, we’re partnering with Swee Lee and JD Sports Malaysia to invite aspiring artists from Malaysia to submit a creative cover. All you need to do is upload your cover to Instagram and the prizes could be all yours. Here’s how:

 

What exactly do I need to do?

Pick a song from any of the three singles below:

  1. Better Days” – Neiked, Mae Muller, Polo G
  2. SOMEBODY” – keshi
  3. Cold Heart” – Elton John, Dua Lipa

 

You can either do a cover of any of the above or do a mashup of all three. We encourage you to go all out for this one! Do an instrumental cover, a lo-fi remix, a hip hop version of the tracks, flip it however you’d like. It’s entirely up to you to show us what you’ve got.

Each submission needs to be at least 1 minute long and you must be a Malaysian resident.

 

How do I submit my entry?

Once your cover is all set and ready to go, upload it on Instagram with the hashtag #MyUniversalCoverOf. Make sure your Instagram profile is set to public so that we can see your submission. You also need to tag @universalmusicmalaysia, @spinnup_asia, @sweeleemalaysia and @jdsportsmy for your submission to be considered.

 

The final winner will be notified by Universal Music Malaysia in December.
