“Love Is a Lonely Thing, Pt. 2” Out Now...
Fifi Rong is a unique vocalist, songwriter and producer based in London.
Eccentric, deep and honest, Fifi brings pure emotional intimacy into her songs with a mesmerising voice, nuanced with the flair of her Chinese heritage. She incorporates a wide range of genres such as Electronica, Pop, Dub, Hip Hop, Soundscape and Jazz into her production, resulting in a singularly unexpected musical hybrid.
Fifi has collaborated with artists including Tricky, Phaeleh and Yello (three tracks on their new Universal Records album ‘Toy’) to name a few, and her seductive vocals can be heard on the title track of Skepta’s hugely successful UK No. 2 and Mercury Prize-winning album ‘Konnichiwa’.
She has also received vast support from a stream of blogs and radios including The 405, Clash, Fader Magazine, Hype Magazine, Pigeon and Planes, BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 1 Extra, BBC Radio 6 Music etc., and was publicly voted into China’s Top 10 of most popular new artists.
Having already established herself internationally as a stand-out live performer, with headline shows throughout the UK, Europe and China/Hong Kong, Fifi released her much-anticipated new single ‘Future Never Comes’ in November 2016 with a special launch show at Century Club in London’s Soho and performed live with Yello during their 4 high-profile sold-out shows at Berlin’s Kraftwerk venue in October 2016. Following 4 triumphant SXSW 2017 showcases she has been invited to perform at The Great Escape, with further live plans due to be announced shortly.
Fifi is currently producing her forthcoming album, which is scheduled for release in early 2018.

In 2019, Fifi joined the roster of W Records– the brand new music initiative from the iconic W Hotels.

"Her ability to plainly communicate who she is and where she's at is a coveted goal most artists, rich or poor, spend their entire careers trying to reach. She strips back and reveals Fifi Rong; all her strengths, all her weaknesses... and she isn't afraid to say how she feels about that either."
"Her strengths lie in both her singing and producing and the future looks bright for this independent star in the making. Wrong is a true, underground, electronica album for underground electronica fans. Enjoy!"
