Who knew Kanye West could be vibing so hard to Lagi Syantik by dangdut songstress Siti Badriah or that it would be so glorious?

Kanye West is back to musical relevance once again with his popular Sunday Service jam sessions, which he has held every Sunday since January, in which he’s backed by a gospel choir and musicians in all-white YEEZY garb (hence the name). 

The video below was taken from the latest edition of Sunday Service and uploaded by Ye’s frequent collaborator CyHi The Prynce. Kanye, with his new rainbow-colored hairdo, is seen head-bopping behind the keyboard to a sample of This is the Day by gospel singer Fred Hammond.

Yesterday, Indonesia’s always imaginative netizens began sharing their edits of the video in which they omit the original audio in favor of various songs that should sound familiar to people across the archipelago.

Some of the most memorable ones we’ve seen are:

Warkop DKI

 

Here Kanye is bopping to the theme song for Warkop DKI, a legendary comedy trio active from the 70s-90s.

Ini Rindu

 

Kanye goes deep into melancholy territory with the hit song Ini Rindu (This is Longing) by late singer Farid Hardja

Lagi Syantik

 

Or how this one, with Yeezy joget (dancing) to the dangdut sensation Lagi Syantik (I’m Looking Pretty) by Siti Badriah?

Srimulat

 

Apparently, the theme song of the legendary comedy troupe Srimulat is also bop-able. FYI, the song was originally titled Whiskey & Soda by German composer Roberto Delgado (real name Horst Wende). 

Rindu Muhammadku

 

Indonesians know that Ramadan is near whenever TV stations begin playing this song by nasheed singer Haddad Alwi, which praises the Prophet Muhammad.
