Popular singer Armaan Malik has finally dropped the first English single in his career titled ‘ Control’ on March 20. The music video is now creating a sensation and has crossed over 14 million views in just two weeks.
“ It is to make people aware that Indian singers can also be of global stature. It is just that we have never got represented in that way before. I hope that thinking and mindset change through my songs,” said Malik. Armaan Malik, who has sung over 150 songs in his career is the first Indian singer-songwriter to be featured on the Times Square Billboard in New York City. But, due to the lockdown, the countries have shut down their borders. So, his plan of taking a selfie with his own billboard in NYC got aborted. “ I wish I could be there on Times Square in New York and take a picture with myself and that billboard. But it is important that we should stay indoors during this phase,” said Malik.
When asked is he has dreamt of singing in English, he said that he has strived to sing in as many languages as he can to add to his versatility. "In India, I am not restricted to Hindi songs alone. I sing in Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, and Bengali. But English music has been my childhood dream" said Armaan.
Armaan Malik enjoys a huge fan base in Telugu music circles and many of his songs have become super hits already. His recent song Butta Bomma is a big hit.
