It's been nine months since Faris Shafi's last song was released and it was the worth the wait for his fans because the singer birthed 'Hum', a brave track that discusses his relationship with his absentee father.
Shafi dropped 'Hum' at 2am on Sunday to the surprise of unsuspecting fans. Since then, the replay button on the song has been smashed by fans who relate hard with the emotional content. His newest single talks about a son's complicated relationship with his father.
The music video took an unconventional route and featured the 'Introduction' singer in a window with the wall outside blanketed with vines. The camera pans in and out for the entirety of the video, focusing on a serious Shafi just looking out the window, rapping at one point, vaping at another.
Netizens have been hit hard by the lyrics and commend the courage of the artist for such a personal theme.

The unique concept for the music video didn't go unnoticed by fans.
