Mumbai— 14 Dec 2018 — Artist Aloud, a platform by Hungama that supports and promotes independent content, today released a new single called ‘Jaag’ by award-winning British Indian singer/ songwriter, Shahin Badar in support of women empowerment.
Jaag is a song about women empowerment and encompasses empowering themes of womanhood and liberation, and acceptance of beauty and self-love. Jaag’s video astutely examines the power of survival and admonishment of gender and lovers.
Soumini Sridhara Paul, Vice-President, Artist Aloud, Hungama Digital Media Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. said, “We are excited to release Shahin’s latest single on Artist Aloud. Jaag brings to fore a topical issue and it is important that the audience is able to absorb and imbibe the meaning behind the video. We are certain that Shahin’s brilliant vocals combined with Artist Aloud’s strong reach will help us deliver the intended message in the most effective manner.”
Positive Impact on Society
Driven by her need to contribute to her beloved country, crossover artist Shahin was inpsired the strength and courage of people coming out to state their experiences. But also aware of the millions who are still fearful to open up, she hopes that this track will serve as added motivation.
With the recent awareness of the #MeTooMovement, #WomenEmpowerment among others, our society is waking up and taking a stand on Human Rights and giving it a whole new meaning. The latest single by Shahin is an edgy and hypnotic song that revolves around awakening one’s resolve for independence and breaking the shackles of misogyny and depravation. In a deft fashion, it appeals to the listeners to move forward without being tied down by age-old customs and norms.
Speaking about her new single, Shahin Badar said, “She is beautiful because she is intelligent and she cares not because of what she wears or the wealth she carries! A good man/ brother who respects her inner beauty, acknowledges her strength and vision, becomes her guide and protector, rather than one who watches her to undermine her strength. With verbal abuse, drugs intake, insults, disrespect on the rise, every woman needs a brother who values her integrity and respects her. ‘Jaag’ (Rise) highlights a struggling woman’s fight for liberation and has zero tolerance to manipulation. Equally for a woman and a man the transition of stages from darkness to light requires spirituality, which is not easily perceived without explanation, nor readily understood by our society.”
