Presented under Sony Music India, Amaal Mallik’s debut pop single, Tu Mera Nahi releases today amid enormous hype with celebrities and artists rooting for the young virtuoso. Action star Tiger Shroff, Suniel Shetty, melody queen, Shreya Ghoshal, Sunidhi Chauhan, Honey Singh, Rochak Kohli, music composer, Shekhar Ravjiani, Prakriti Kakkar and Sukriti Kakkar, along with the army of Amaalians had been awaiting Mallik’s first independent song that hits the Indian music scene today with much celebration.

To offer this fresh single in a super special manner, Mallik surprised viewers and listeners as he appeared live on YouTube before the song’s official release. Through the YouTube premiere, the music composer-songwriter-singer who’s known to have an inexplicable connect with young listeners interacted with them. Celebrating independent music, Mallik introduced the song with fanfare befitting its anticipation.

The ultimate heartbreak song of the year has been composed and rendered by Mallik, penned by Rashmi Virag and features him and internet sensation, Aditi Budhathoki. Given Mallik’s incredible credentials as a musician and his contribution to music for cinema, the song is touted to win over listeners and stand out in the modern Indian pop genre.

He says, “I have always made music with passion, love & honesty. With Tu Mera Nahi, I tried to pack the choicest elements musically and visually including the arid beauty of Dubai that favourably underlines the feeling of desertion in the song, the creativity of live musicians and Virag sir’s spot-on lyrics. I’m grateful for the love Tu Mera Nahi has been getting before its release and now that it’s released to the listeners, I’m hopeful that the love will grow tenfold. A big up to Sony Music to trying new things, pushing the audio out before the video is not something an artist tries unless the song is associated with a big film and a big campaign. We are confident about the soul & cinematic experience the song has and it’s already winning hearts everywhere… I can see vocal covers, instrumental covers and dance covers! I wish every Amaalian the same thrill I’m experiencing right now.”

Presented by Sony Music India, composed and sung by Amaal Mallik, starring him and Aditi Budhathoki and written by Rashmi Virag, Tu Mera Nahi is now available on all streaming platforms.
