Asim Azhar treats fans with Humraah acoustic version
The youngest Pakistani singer to have garnered more than 100 Million views on any song on YouTube, aka Asim Azhar, had posted his debut Bollywood song, ‘Humraah’ on 26th May 2020. Today, even after more than nine days, the song is still trending on YouTube with more than 3 million views.
He promised his fans he will release an acoustic version of Humraah if he gets the top spot on Youtube trends. Unfortunately due to some technical glitch, the song was taken off the charts. However, music aficionados made sure to bring it back to the top ten trending videos across the country and the songster made sure to fulfill his promise.
Both versions of the song accumulated exceptional praise from not only Pakistan but music enthusiasts across the border as well, calling it better than the version used in the movie. Owing to the spectacular success of the song, he wrote, “When I made this melody 3 years ago on a random night at my studio in Karachi, never did I think it would be given so much love…thank you so much. God is the best planner.”
