Track of the year!
Maz Bonafide’s ‘Soni Soni Selfiyan’ smashes over a quarter of a million views within days of release
It comes as no surprise as Maz, who’s one half of the award-winning UK Asian music duo ‘Bonafide’, racked up tens of thousands of views within hours of it’s release on YouTube.
Following on from the worldwide success of his first solo single ‘Jaan’, Maz Bonafide has now got everyone groovin’ to a mind-blowing anthem ‘Soni Soni Selfiyan’, which he has written and composed himself.
The entertaining dance floor track is very much aimed at the millions of people who click selfies on a daily basis and has been produced by acclaimed music makers 'Bloodline'.
Fresh from his North America Tour Maz says: “I literally wrote and composed the whole song in a couple of hours!
“I wanted to write a fun up-tempo track dedicated to the current selfie phenomenon, which has swept across the globe and become so popular on social media.
“Everywhere you go these days fans want selfies. When I’m out and about; be it here in the UK or another part of the world, fans want to take selfies.
“It’s no longer just about meet and greet, everyone wants to capture the moment. So naturally I wanted to give back to all, say a thank you for all the love and support and what better way to do this than portray this in my music and capture the fun and excitement.”
Starring the tremendously stunning Jasmin Walia (The only way is Essex, Towie, Desi rascals fame) and set in a luxurious venue ‘Arabian Nites’ in Birmingham, the big budget video has caused quite a stir.
As part of Bonafide, Maz along with his partner in rhyme, Ziggy recently collaborated with Bilal Saeed to give us the beautiful melodic summer hit 'memories'.
With ‘Soni Soni Selfiyan’ the popular British-Pakistani singer is hoping to expand his musical horizons and reach out to even more people.
“I enjoy both working as a solo artist as well as being a part of Bonafide.
“We like to switch it up and make each release fresh and different to our previous songs hence I followed up a romantic number 'Memories' with a fun up-tempo song many people will be able to relate to. I really hope people make Soni Soni Selfiyan their own,” said Maz.
Well maz, you’ve got us at Asian Express hooked on the track – can’t wait to hear what you’ve got lined up next!
