Who doesn’t love 'Joona'? Hasan Raheem had all of us vibing to it and looks like we’re not the only ones grooving to the upbeat track — Bollywood actor Vicky Kaushal recorded himself lip-syncing and dancing to the beat, indicating that this is definitely not the first time he’s listened to the song.
Kaushal posted the video on his Instagram Stories captioned, "Aaj mood kaafi top chal raha hai [Today I'm in a great mood]."
We don't know if the song put the Raazi actor in a great mood or he listened to the song to enhance his already great mood — all we've got to say is tag McDonald's because we're loving it!
Spotify recently revealed some insights into music trends in Pakistan, and Raheem landed himself among the top Pakistani artists on the music streaming platform. Other artists include Atif Aslam, Talha Anjum, Talhah Yunus, Young Stunners, Shamoon Ismail, Asim Azhar, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Ali Zafar.
Originally from Gilgit, the singer moved to Karachi to study to be a doctor. Music, however, seems to be where his heart really lies. Some of his hit singles include 'Aisay Kaisay' and 'Paisa'. His latest song would be his feature in Coke Studio season 14, 'Peechay Hutt' in collaboration with Justin Bibis and Talal Qureshi.
Raheem was also featured in Forbes this year, which dubbed him "the wonder-kid making waves in Pakistani music". The magazine described Raheem's music-making as "a slow-burning process that Raheem felt deliciously consumed by".
He is particular about writing his own song lyrics, no matter who he collaborates with. “I usually write about things that tease me,” he told the publication. “I pour my feelings into my music. I try to keep it as simple as possible so that anyone who listens to my songs can connect with them. I keep it straightforward so that everyone understands what I have to say.
“I think I’m learning and experimenting with my music every day. I’m a student of this art form. I try to sing and write in different ways. I practice constantly.”
