As we get closer to the end of 2017, the amount of new releases tends to dip as many are saved for next year. However, I have just decided to write an almost last minute New Music Monday, for a song that has recently caught my attention, and has stayed in my mind even though it has been a month since it released. The song in question is popular Bollywood singer Darshan Raval‘s latest single Tera Zikr.
Darshan debuted onto the Indie pop scene as a contestant and runner up on the reality show India’s RAWStar in 2014. He had already accumulated a successful fan following via his own YouTube channel. It was during the reality show that he met my favourite multi-talented artist and mentor Himesh Reshammiya, who then gave Darshan popular Bollywood songs for playback singing such as Main Woh Chaand and Bekhudi from the film Teraa Surroor. Both of these songs are in Darshan’s romantic genre of choice, and that is reflected in his latest single Tera Zikr. Himeshji also gave Darshan the songs Jab Tum Chaho from Prem Ratan Dhan Payo and the super hit Kheench Meri Photo from Sanam Teri Kasam.
Tera Zikr is an original composition by Darshan, and is a beautiful romantic melody. The video of the song has been well executed too, and we see a more mature Darshan displaying his acting skills, while performing the song. It’s no surprise that the song has crossed 20+ million views!
