Singer Jannine Weigel, of Thai and German descent, is releasing her new single Passcode this September 18. Passcode is the first song by new record label RedRecords which is a joint venture between AirAsia and Universal Music Group.

Weigel, 20, who is well-known in Thailand with 3.6 million subscribers on YouTube, 3.2 million followers on Facebook, 1.7 million on Instagram and more than 500,000 on TikTok, said she was excited over the song.

“I love that it captures my personality perfectly — fun and bubbly, but with a little bit of an edge,” she said. Although the young idol has a successful career as an actor, model and influencer, singing is her biggest passion.

“Singing is what truly makes me happy. I love how music can affect people and how a song can evoke raw emotions in all of us,” she said. Weigel was born in Steinfurt, Germany and she moved to Thailand at the age of 10. She rose to fame when as a teen, she would upload cover versions of her favourite songs to her YouTube channel. She became the first Thai singer to receive YouTube’s highly-coveted Gold Button.

Born on July 30, 2000, Jannine Parawie Weigel is also known by the Thai nickname Ploychompoo. She is a Thai singer, songwriter, actress, model, influencer, gamer, ambassador and YouTuber. Weigel is half German and half Thai. She was born in Germany to a Thai mother and a German Father. Her first name Jannine was from Hebrew and it means “Yahweh is gracious”. Her middle name Parawie stands for “sunbeam” in Thai. Weigel’s Thai nickname Ploychompoo means “pink sapphire.”Follow us on Social Media
