The task was simple: Photograph three of Singapore’s hottest male singing stars for our annual Party People feature in the upcoming December issue. What went down in the studio afterwards yesterday was a totally unscripted moment.

In the spotlight: It Boy of the moment and Sing! China runner-up Nathan Hartono; homegrown rapper Shigga Shay, the guy behind viral hits like Limpeh (he also collaborated with American singer Jay Park on a catchy remix earlier in July); and fellow rapper The Lion City Boy (TLCB), whose latest album release Paradise reached the #2 spots on iTunes Singapore’s hip-hop and all genres charts.

The boys turned up an original tune on the spot, with Hartono’s honeyed vocals and catchy beatboxing, and witty rhymes courtesy of TLCB and Shigga Shay (“sipping on a teh at a hawker store” anyone?). Watch the video now and get blown away. By Imran Jalal.
