The artist's latest release, 'One on One', offers an intimate conversation between the artist and his younger self. The song was inspired by one-on-one conversations with their closest friends - "It turns out I'm not the only kid that built a castle to cry alone. We all have secrets we don't share and emotions we hide."

Justin Peng hopes 'One on One' will resonate with listeners facing similar struggles, encouraging them to embrace vulnerability as a pathway to self-love, growth, and strength. The song is a prelude to his upcoming bilingual EP, 'Growing Out', scheduled for release in March 2023.

Since his debut in October 2022, Justin Peng has quickly gained recognition in the music industry, accumulating over 150,000 streams across all majors platforms in just one year. His unique blend of personal storytelling and musical prowess has earned him the title of "Rising Newcomer" by Vogue China along with praises from industry leaders such as Nicole Scherzinger, Sam Smith and Emeli Sandé.

Rising British-Asian artist Justin Peng releases his latest single, "One on One," an emotional ballad about self-discovery and embracing vulnerability. The track, written and performed in English and Mandarin Chinese, serves as an intimate conversation between the artist and his younger self, delving into the artists personal journey and the challenges of growing up Asian in the UK.

Justin Peng lays bare the struggles he faced in a household where emotions were never discussed. Raised with an emphasis on academic achievement and success, Justin found himself building a metaphorical castle to shield his innermost feelings from the outside world. The golden façade hid a trove of secrets and damages, a sentiment beautifully encapsulated in the lyrics of the song. Reflecting on his journey, Peng shares, "Growing up Chinese in the UK, I feel like I needed to impress everyone, at home and at school. One the one hand, I wasn’t taught how to talk about emotions; on the other hand, I didn’t want to. I didn’t want my parents to worry about me; I didn’t want my friends to know that I was weak. So I built this castle to protect myself."
