The song, which can be streamed exclusively on JOOX, can also be downloaded as a ringtone. Proceeds will be donated to an emergency fund managed by RIM to help local musicians who are in need. In addition, the music video for this song will be launched on December 24. 

Angie Tan, Head of JOOX Malaysia, said, “Musicians in Malaysia have always been contributors and played an important role in the shaping of local culture. I hope ‘Jalan’ can inspire and uplift Malaysia, and I can't wait for local music fans to hear the incredible collaboration of their favorite artists and some of the best up-and-coming stars, together with their favorite cartoon characters.” 

According to Faizal Tahir, who has worked with JOOX for several times, “Jalan” is considered to be a unique project because it gives a positive message and impact to Malaysians, and added that JOOX’s vision for the project has been very clear from the beginning. 

“This is one of the reasons why I took the opportunity to be a part of this meaningful project. This is a very good effort and idea from JOOX and also gives a chance for senior artists and new artists to work together hand in hand,” said Faizal.  “At the same time, it is able to reach a larger target audience and more listeners from various backgrounds and walks of life. Apart from that, it delivers a positive message through the collaboration of artists from different generations, which shows that we are all united to bring them something good.” 

“The main objective of this song is to share enthusiasm for everyone. Therefore, the production of this song did not take so long to complete. Aziz Harun helped in the production of the song and this helped a lot to get insights and perspective from the new generation,” he added. “The main challenge was in selecting the artists and to get everyone present at the studio for the recording session due to the state of the Movement Control Order (MCO) at that time. Despite the difficulty, all the artists gave their full commitment and great vocals to bring ‘Jalan’ to life.” 

Dayang Nurfaizah, who has won the Best Vocal Award three times in a row at the “Anugerah Juara Lagu” (AJL), believes that the collaboration between senior artists and new artists in this project is something good for the Malaysia’s music industry. 

“This project is a good initiative from JOOX for Malaysia's music industry. I felt so happy to be able to participate in this great project. What's more, many artists, both seniors and juniors are all together for one ultimate, meaningful goal,” she said. 

“The uniqueness of this song lies in the lyrics’ meaningful message that is easy to be understood by today’s generation. On top of that, the melody of this song is definitely catchy. The chorus of this song is easy to sing along with other people,” she added. 

Meanwhile, the singer from Brunei, Aziz Harun, described the production of the song “Jalan” as suitable for anyone who may be going through challenges amid the Covid-19 pandemic. 

“I really like the initiative made by JOOX because it is very meaningful. It can help the lives of artists during the Covid-19 pandemic. On top of that, this song was produced in a very creative and effective way. I hope this initiative will continue to benefit and help the situation of artists,” said Aziz. 

“Apart from this song being published and written with a very fresh sound, the lyrics of the song are very relevant for everyone who is going through a lot during this phase and before the MCO. The unique vocals and sounds that each artist brings to this song made it even more special,” he added. 

“Honestly, the opportunity to record a song with many artist friends is really exciting. The involvement of the senior singers and ‘legends’, made me more enthusiastic because I was able to learn and watch when they are working. Now I can say that I had a song with Faizal Tahir and Dayang Nurfaizah,” concludes Aziz. 

The involvement of new singers like Aisha Retno and Khodi provided another valuable experience in their music careers. Describing the opportunity given by JOOX to be involved in the song “Jalan”, the two upcoming talents considers it to be an honor. 

“Thank you to JOOX for giving new artists like us the opportunity to collaborate in this great project. For us, the song will be an eye opener for music listeners because senior artists and new artists are able to produce a good collaboration, symbolizing togetherness to walk together in critical moments such as now,” they stated.
