The new single from Chinese recording artist, songwriter, producer and actor Kris Wu , out now on Interscope Records with the track going straight to # 1 at US iTunes. “Like That” is the follow up to Wu’s hit song “Deserve” featuring Travis Scott and his first release since signing an exclusive international recording agreement with Interscope Records / Universal Music Group (UMG) last month. Produced by FKi 1st (an Atlanta-based producer/writer known for his work with Migos, 2 Chainz, Post Malone ?and Travis Scott), and co-written by Wu, “Like That” is built on a sophisticated arrangement of trap drums, seductive melody, and rhythmic dance grooves. Laid-back yet intense, the song perfectly showcases Wu’s signature harmonies and catchy lyrics.
“Like That" has a chill summertime vibe, it feels dreamy and trippy and takes you to another world. The song is about seeing a beautiful girl across the room and taking a chance on what could happen next,” said Wu. Wu will soon release a video for “Like That,” featuring British supermodel and Victoria’s Secret Angel Stella Maxwell. The song is set to appear on his forthcoming debut album, which is due out later this year on Interscope Records. Last October, Wu became the first-ever Chinese artist to reach No. 1 on the U.S. iTunes Chart, thanks to the smash success of the single “Deserve” ft. Travis Scott. Along with breaking Top 40 at US Rhythmic radio, “Deserve” has racked up more than a billion streams globally to date.
One of Asia’s biggest stars, the 27-year-old Wu was born in Guangzhou, China. In addition to gaining an international following with a series of viral hits co-written and co-produced by Wu (including “July,” “6,” “B.M.,” and “Juice”), which quickly gained a US following and millions of plays online?He’s starred in movies like XxX: Return of Xander Cage and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. He also serves as a brand ambassador for BVLGARI and a global brand ambassador at Burberry (making Wu the first non-British person chosen to represent the luxury brand). Most recently Wu was tapped as an ambassador for the NFL and the first Chinese artist to perform at Super Bowl LIVE in February 2018.

Located in a former mill, the Mumbai outpost of the US chain of resto-bars has a mixed reputation among the city's musicians. In the first couple of years after opening, in 2006, indie rock acts were often asked to include a stipulated number of cover songs in their set lists. These days, Hard Rock Café, which hosts gigs every Tuesday and Thursday night, sticks mostly to cover bands, with a couple of dates a month spared for indie groups. Skip these gigs, and come here only for the ticketed events, when one of the seating areas is cleared to make room for a larger stage, for performances by Indian indie icons (folk-fusion veterans Indian Ocean, electro-rock superstars Pentagram), international chart toppers (Wyclef Jean, Jay Sean) or club-packing DJs (Bob Sinclair, Paul van Dyk). Be warned, though: the waiters break into a synchronised jig every time the Village People's "YMCA" comes on.
