The song became the summer anthem of Mongolia and reached over 3 million views in a country with a population of 3 million. The single was recorded in Kaohsiung, Taiwan while still studying at university.
In 2017, he released his single called “Pretty Girls Like Trap Music” which influenced Mongolian audience and other rap artists heavily to like trap music much more.
