Following on from the No.1 debut smash hit “Thenu Thakia“, Intenso is back with his 2nd single “Aashiq“. From the mellow fusion he created with the unmistakable Rishi Rich sound, the Manchester born artist returns in tandem with International Superstar Roach Killa for undoubtedly one of the hits of the summer.
Presented once again by Moviebox Records, Aashiq promises to be a timeless addition to Intenso‘s catalogue. Fusing the melodic vocals of singing mixed with rap, Intenso compliments a beautifully orchestrated song, produced and composed by the Toronto born international artist Roach Killa. Reminiscent of the unique “Roach Killa” sound, Aashiq brings to the forefont Intenso‘s first blast at singing and unmistakably stamps his seal on the track giving a complete variation to his delivery style from the previous release.
This was another amazing opportunity to work with an artist that I look upto and someone who has been a big influence on my return to the industry. Roach’s music speak for itself and I found working alongside him brought out a creative side in me I never knew existed.
This song has given me the chance to showcase my flexibility as an artist and deviate from what I am normally used to. Roach allowed me to come out of my comfort zone of straight rap and develop my skill of melodic rap with singing. The result, a summer anthem that I hope everyone enjoys and appreciates….this is just the start of my musical journey.
The video of Aashiq was shot in Intenso‘s hometown of Manchester and has a very personal feel to it. A stark contrast to the previous single “Thenu Thakia“, the sun, sea and sand have been replaced by a luxurious Penthouse City Apartment, with Intenso going back to his roots of his hometown, bring out his versatility as an artist with this explosive 2nd single from his forthcoming album “De-Ja-Vu“.
The full single and video will be released worldwide on 23rd May 2013 via iTunes and other digital outlets.
