Kiwi rapper/producer and friend of George FM CHAII continues to kick goals across the world stage - not only is the title track from her EP Lightswitch getting solid plays on radio and Spotify at the moment, she's also just been announced to feature in the soundtrack for the reboot of the legendary Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 video game.

Dan Rutledge from Newshub with the story:

New Zealand artist CHAII has says it's a 'surreal honour' to be part of the soundtrack for Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2.

The 'Nobody Know' hitmaker took part this week in a livestreamed music event along with other artists from the game's soundtrack.

CHAII is one of 37 new acts whose songs are being added to the upcoming remaster of two classic titles.

It's pretty surreal. Joining such a crazy soundtrack with songs I grew up to is a huge honour.

"It's awesome to see artists from all sides of the world be featured on such a legendary game that is internationally played. I feel that there's music on there for everyone."

CHAII moved to Aotearoa from Iran when she was aged eight and started playing Tony Hawk games with her brother shortly after.

She perfomed in the livestream with fellow new Tony Hawk artists Machine Gun Kelly, Merkules and Rough Francis.

"Musicians have always adapted to change and I feel music and these virtual concerts are most needed now to keep people's spirits alive," says CHAII.

The full livestream can be replayed via YouTube:
