Higher Brothers set things straight with “Open it Up”

The Chinese trap group are gearing up to drop their sophomore album.

International trap sensation Higher Brothers are back with “Open it Up,” from their much-anticipated sophomore album, Five Stars.

The throwback banger, which follows December’s “16 Hours,” finds the quartet at the top of their game—rapping with confidence as they switch seamlessly between English and Mandarin,  doling out poetic lines about their lives before and after fame.

The track’s highlight, though, comes from Melo on the second verse, who spits: “A cheap rental, working, hiding in the corner / It’s been tough, but now there’s so much glitter /  I’ve been on so many trips, a long journey / But I never regret being straightforward.”


The group first made headlines in 2017 with the viral hit “Made In China.” Since then, they have released their debut album Black Cab, dropped the EPs Journey to the West and Type-3, and are set to release their sophomore LP, Five Stars, on February 22.
