Bradford born Usman Rehman is back with a big tune for this summer! Majajan is the second single to come from the rising Northern star and after the success of “Jadon Holi Jai” you know that this is going to fulfil the highest expectations.
Having reached number 3 in the world iTunes chart in the UK and America with his cover of Jadon Holi Jai, which was originally sung by the legendary Noor Jahan, Usman Rehman is here with a track that he has written himself accompanied by the production from none other than Young Archie. This combination of talents has given us an exciting mix of East meets West as you hear Usman Rehman in a way like never before, with this urban Punjabi track.
After spending months touring Europe, Australia, Canada and America doing media appearances, gigs and private sufimehfils, Usman Rehman is back on his now acquired home soil, Manchester, to deliver us with this exciting summer track. His influences include Sonu Nigam, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and the renowned Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and these influences can be seen clearly in his music.
The video, shot in LA, features some famous locations including the restaurant used in Ocean’s Eleven and the infamous Los Angeles river watershed which can be seen in the films Terminator and Gone in 60 seconds as well as used in music videos by Pussy Cat Dolls and Cheryl Cole! It features Usman Rehman as the main lead alongside LA based Asian model, Rashi Stephens. Shot by Ballistic, Sai Smith and Kully Ghatore and using the same crew and location as Beyoncé in her Crazy in Love video, this makes it a truly amazing experience. You will see LA in such a way that you have never seen it before which shows just how much thought has gone into all of the Majajan experience with the quality of lyrics teamed with the immense locations!
