After a major coup in signing a deal with the Pan-Asian Film and Music Awards academy (PAIFMA) and being recognized as one of the top Asian artists in the UK, Abbas Hasan has had quite a month! He signed as the new face for international fashion brand Mastrioni’s latest campaign and announced his new single ‘Sweet Girl’ will be releasing on November 19th! Check out the trailer!
Since his “Away” video starring Humaima Malick and his collaboration with Shahrukh Khan’s official DJ on the ‘Jaan Ke Vaaste’ remix, there has been a lot of speculation on who would be his leading lady in “Sweet Girl.” Abbas has now revealed that his secret co-star is none other than actress, Armeena Khan! Armeena is best known for her movie Writhe which featured at the Cannes Film Festival. She also had great success with her role in this summer’s international blockbuster Bin Roye. The beauty recently graced the cover of Hello! Magazine. She and Abbas have been close for a long time and are both fellow Canadian artists.
In the meantime we know that in true Abbas style, “Sweet Girl” is in English-Urdu/Hindi and starts out with some vocals in French. It has been produced with Rishi Rich’s protégé Naamless and the video has been directed by top Persian director Amir Taherian with styling by Prangsta. Speaking about this highly anticipated track, Abbas Hasan said,
“It’s been a crazy few months for me, and I know my habibis have been waiting a long time for this one. I can’t wait to share it with you all and as I start my journey with the Pan-Asian awards academy I can’t wait for you to see what I have in store for you!”
Previously, the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) already named Abbas as one of the top Asian artists to watch and the star already won the Artist of the Year award last year. From number 1 hit singles to touring with the likes of Shahrukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra, Abbas Hasan even headlined at the Times of India Film Awards.
Abbas Hasan is definitely an artist to look out for. Keep it locked for more updates! And don’t forget to check in for the release of “Sweet Girl” on November 19th 2015!
