The first being a sufi mid tempo song called Ali Ali; then come s the album’s lead song Roya, which is also an ode to my wife. Then there is the humorous
Mere Baap Ka Kya Jata Hai, mesmerising ballad Karun Na Yaad, a Punjabi track Kudi Tight and a song penned in the memory of my father, Baba,” begins Sami. The album covers genres and Kudi Tight is a tribute to Punjab with comic elements.
“You will see me romancing Bharti in the Punjabi number with all the mattka jhattka and romantic comedy lyrics. Since there is a lot of comedy involved in the track, we chose Bharti as the female lead. I think she is the perfect choice,” he says.
As for playback, the singer who has made headlines for everything from his weightloss regime to his domestic problems, has reportedly recorded three songs and will soon act in a movie. Referring to changing audience requirements, Sami says, “With the increasing number of refined listeners, the music industry is also growing. There are excellent music composers and directors.
