MUMBAI: Music maestro A.R. Rahman Monday launched his new album "Raunaq" and said that he dedicates it to Vogue Empower, a social awareness initiative that draws attention to women's empowerment.

"I pledge to spread the message of Vogue Empower by dedicating my latest album, 'Raunaq', to the campaign," Rahman said in a statement. 

"The album echoes the significance of the cause, women's empowerment, with the song and video, "Laadli", created in collaboration with Kapil Sibal and Lata Mangeshkar," he added.
