VannDa is officially back and he’s busier than ever!

Cambodia’s hip hop superstar returned today (March 18) with his electrifying new single, “Bok Kalo,” the first single to drop off his upcoming album $KULL 2, the highly anticipated follow-up to his 2020 debut album, $KULL THE ALBUM.

$KULL 2 is set to release in two parts, with the first half arriving on May 20, while the second half will premiere later in the year. VannDa has started the year strong with the release of his previous single, “Khmer Blood,” on his birthday on January 22. In line with the artist’s spirit for dynamism and restlessness in working towards innovation, the artist is also making history with being the first Cambodian artist to go on a tour around the country—something that has been in the works before the pandemic halted music events globally.
