Azaan Sami Khan dedicates music video for ‘Jaadugari’ to his kids, says no magic supersedes fatherhood

Published

Azaan Sami Khan announced his debut album Main Tera recently and the music video for ‘Jaadugari’, one of the nine tracks, is finally out. Khan is changing the game by attributing the concept in the video to a topic rarely celebrated by our celebrities — fatherhood. The singer said he’s always wanted to produce music that feels personal to him and ‘Jaadugari’ does just that because for him fatherhood is the most magical experience.

“This is a very special one for me for reasons that you’ll see. I always wanted my independent music to be personal and it doesn’t get more personal for me than this. There’s no magic that supersedes the magic of being a father to you Ebu and Lilly. Along with all the others, this one’s for you… Love, Baba,” the singer captioned an Instagram post showcasing part of the music video.

Khan thanked Asim Raza, the music director, for having faith in him and sharing his special affinity with fatherhood. He also thanked the lyricist. “This was the last song Shakeel Sohail wrote for me before his passing and will always be very special.”

Addressing his Instagram audience, he hoped they enjoy it. “Finally here’s to all of you, I hope you have fun with this and like it!”

The music video begins with Khan on a piano and progresses to him stepping out and responding with love whenever someone tries to harm him — he gifts a rose to a woman who holds a crystal ball casting an evil glance and hugs the thugs who try to fight him on the subway. He returns to his kids at the end of the day to tuck them into bed, gazing at them lovingly.

“Experience the magic of love with Azaan Sami Khan through the visionary eyes of Asim Raza. I hope you like it,” read the caption to the video on his YouTube channel.

In conversation with ICON in Jan, Khan said, “I wanted to make something that is more Azaan, When I’m scoring for a soundtrack — whether it’s for a drama series or a film, for me, the story is about those characters. If I tried to exude my own personal emotions on them, then I would not be being honest to those characters. But this album… this is me.”

Zayn Malik: Ex-One Direction’s Urdu hit ‘Tu Hai Kahan’ leaves millions longing for more

Published

British heartthrob Zayn Malik, who is known to the world for his melodious vocals in English, has now tested his singing mettle by crooning an Urdu language love song — and apparently, the fans can’t get enough of it.

Collaborating with the Pakistani band “Aur”, Zayn features in the remake of their popular hit “Tu Hai Kahan” which has more than 95 million views on YouTube.

However, the remake too, has received significant praise from fans as the song has garnered more than 3.5 million views on the video-sharing platform.

Expressing his views on his experience of singing Urdu lyrics, the 31-year-old — a former member of the popular boy band One Direction — told BBC in an interviewthat he loved the song and hoped that fans would love the collaboration after he brought some of himself to the rendition.

This is not the first time Zayn has showcased his vocals in Urdu, as the British singer — who rose to fame after his music career kicked off via One Direction following his appearance on the British TV music competition “The X Factor” in 2010 — previously included Urdu lyrics in his track “Tightrope”, from his 2021 album “Nobody is Listening”.

The collaboration cannot be termed unexpected as the British singer — who was born and raised in Bradford — has Pakistani roots as his father immigrated to the UK from the South Asian nation.

This is how the fans reacted to Zayn’s collaboration with the Pakistani band.

“This is a great gesture by Zayn by collaborating with these youngsters and making their song much more popular than it was […] Zayn collaboration gave it those extra wings and wind to it,” commented a fan.

“This collab is going to be my comfort song for a long time,” wrote an X user.

“Zayn stans will forever cherish this song. We truly appreciate you all for making this happen,” said another.

Whereas some fans were “shocked” to see how eloquently Zayn managed to sing Urdu lyrics.

“One of the best and unexpected collaborations ever […] truly a masterpiece,” a user commented on the song.

“Big love […] thanks for all the support,” Zayn said while reacting to the overwhelming praise from the fans.

The collaboration between Zayn and Aur — comprising Ahad, Usama, and Raffey — reflects the band’s open-minded approach to music as it believes that music has no boundaries, the essence of which is reflected in the song.

Reacting to the global popularity and overwhelming reactions from the fans, the band said they were taking Pakistani music to the world stage and “can’t wait for the world to vibe to their music”.
