Singer-Songwriter, Armaan Malik, has released his highly anticipated English single, ‘You’, on January 7, 2022. Armaan, who is particularly known for his ballads back home in India, steps into his comfort zone and delivers stunning vocals and visuals.
Crowned as one of India’s “most talked-about musicians on Twitter” of 2021, Armaan’s release of ‘You’ portrays the warm fuzzy feeling of finding your special person, the one you’re willing to take that leap of faith for. As a listener of the single, the lyrics are meant to define the magic of true, butterfly-inducing, once-in-a-lifetime kind of love; but is also the kind of love that will make you want to fight all odds, and everything life throws at you, as long as you’ve got each other.
‘You’ has been minimally arranged with acoustic guitars and warm lush strings, which beautifully enhance the songwriting and soothing vocals. The vulnerability and self-awareness Armaan showcases through his songwriting on ‘You’ emulates a message worth embracing. He elaborates, “My latest single “You” is one of my most favourite songs I’ve released to date. It’s got a certain purity and simplicity that I believe will speak to a lot of people. I’ve always wanted to do a love ballad in English and “You” definitely is a no-brainer in that genre. The song has been in the works for almost two years now which is why I am extremely excited that it’s finally out there in the world for people to hear and make their own. I hope all my fans and the new listeners love the song as much as I do.”
The release of ‘You’ marks Armaan’s 4th solo English single, and is showcasing a softer side of his voice compared to his previous Global releases. Last year Armaan infiltrated markets all across the globe with the release of ‘Echo‘, a collaboration with Korean American artist Eric Nam and platinum music producer KSHMR. Since its release; the “Echo” video shot up to over 26M views, charted on over 20 New Music Friday Playlists, was the #1 Dance song in India / charting in 10 other countries, and became the first singer of Indian origin to be featured on the Spotify Times Square billboard in New York.
After cementing his position in the Indian music industry, Armaan has now forayed into the global music circuit with his MTV EMA winning debut English single, ‘Control’, followed by Billboard’s Top Triller chart-topping “next 2 me” and ‘How Many‘; making him the first-ever artist to have achieved this feat twice within one year – Billboard. He is the youngest singer of Indian origin to have performed at The SSE Arena, Wembley, London, and to become the winner of the SSE Awards Live Act. Armaan was also the voice of Aladdin in the Hindi dubbed version of the live-action remake of the Disney classic, ‘Aladdin’ and the singing voice of Simba in The Lion King.
