Inspired by Justin Bieber’s hit single, Baby (2010), rapper-composer Raftaar, too, will release a single by the same name. Incidentally, the song will release on May 10, the day the 23-year-old Canadian popstar performs at his first ever concert in India (Mumbai) as part of his ongoing Purpose World Tour.

A self-confessed Bieber-fan, Raftaar is impressed with his fame and style of music. “It’s amazing to see the kind of fame he has achieved at such a young age (23 years). His music is loved by everyone, and his songs are so relatable. Baby was his first hit, and I love the way he has arranged it. It’s flawless. With each song, he keeps evolving in music production. Recently, he has adopted a new sonic style, which I love,” he says.

However, Raftaar’s Baby will be unlike Bieber’s original. Instead of a love song, Raftaar’s new single will talk about empowerment of women. “It will be a tribute to all the strong and independent women around the globe. As a socially active and informed artist, Raftaar focuses on songs that go beyond fast cars, women, vices and parties. For instance, his song Alla Ve, talks about humanity and world peace. His other single, Mother Nature, is a commentary on global warming while the song Aurat highlights sexism and objectification of women,” says a source close to the Delhi-born rapper.

The song’s video will feature actor Nora Fatehi, and will be choreographed by Remo D’souza.
