Kunto Aji’s second album talks and spread the awareness of how important mental health is. His lead singles “Konon Katanya” reminds people to chase their own dreams despite what other people might say, “Topik Semalam” is a message about a guy who hasn’t proposed to his longtime girlfriend but asking her to be patient because he has his plan to do so, and also “Rehat” a self-reminder to people that it’s completely okay to take a breather for a while. The album went on to receive 5 nominations in Anugerah Musik Indonesia (AMI) Awards in 2019 including Best Pop Male Solo Act and Best Album.
