Asian-American artist and advocate for refugees across the world, Star2, releases the new album, Shooting Stars. The eleven track project marks a new musical chapter for Star2 and is filled with pop-drenched love songs and the essence of warm island escapes.

Focus track “Shooting Stars” is about admiring someone who’s just out of reach, knowing that one day, you’ll be destined to be together. “Shooting Stars” captivates with iridescent beats, tropical soundscapes, and loveswept vocals that ruminate on Star2’s feelings of love sickness and longing. Comparing the apple of his eye to a shooting star that glimmers from miles away, Star2 reminisces on how a fleeting moment is enough to make him wish for a lifetime of memories with her. 

Star2 was born into the Mae La refugee camp in Thailand and recently visited his birthplace in hopes of inspiring the next generation of Asian artists. Faced with overwhelming heartache and loss growing up, Star2 found his solace in music. Collaborating with notable artists such as Soulja Boy, $tupid Young, Mozzy, MBNel, Luh Kel, Lil Poppa, , HoodTrophy Bino, YSN Flow, and MarMar Oso, Star2 has garnered widespread praise. Esteemed platforms including Ones to Watch, Harper’s Bazaar Vietnam, GQ, Earmilk, BET, Lyrical Lemonade, and HotNewHipHop have all recognized his talent and impact.
