A musical force to reckon with, Amaal Mallik is one of India’s youngest artists to have garnered over 10 million listeners on major streaming platforms.
After having delivered hit music for films such as ‘Kabir Singh’, ‘M S Dhoni-The Untold Story’, ‘Airlift’ and ‘Kapoor & Sons,the composer–singer–lyricist is now ready to release his much-awaited pop debut ‘Tu Mera Nahi’.
The romantic ballad is composed and sung by Mallik and the lyrics have been penned by Rashmi Virag – the master lyricist of ‘Bol Do Na Zara’, ‘Main Rahoon Ya Na Rahoon’, ‘Hamari Adhuri Kahani’ and many more chartbusters.
The pop single explores the themes of love, separation and moving on. The grand music video features Amaal and supermodel and actor Aditi Budhathoki.
Excited about breaking into the pop scene, Amaal says, “I always intended to create non-film music for myself and I’m thrilled that “Tu Mera Nahi” is finally happening. This is the first time I am singing, composing and featuring the music video and I really hope that I do justice to my fans, and manage to give them something they love and goes beyond their expectations. My music career took off in Dubai and this year I got to shoot my first single there. So in a lot of ways, with Tu Mera Nahi, life has come full circle for me.”
“Sony Music and my director Arif have been really amazing, both musically and creatively. They let me explore music and they gave me the creative freedom every artist deserves so that I can put my soul out there for people to see me as who I truly am,” adds Amaal.
The song will be released by Sony Music India and is planned with a marketing blitzkrieg. The audio of ‘Tu Mera Nahi’ will be out on November 5.
