Indian Hip-Hop and R&B superstar King is seemingly gearing up for an Afro-pop-influenced remix of his top-selling record ‘Maan Meri Jaan’. Earlier today, the ‘Champagne talk’ emcee confirmed that he has teamed up with Afro-Pop superstar Ray Vanny for the highly anticipated remix.
The record, slated to drop on February 24th 2023, will be King’s second effort to push his wildly popular album on the global stage. In November last year, King linked up with the Australian rapper and record producer Masked Wolf for the ‘Oops’ Remix.
King went on to share an exclusive artwork for ‘Maan Meri Jaan’ remix. “It’s time for the ‘Maan Meri Jaan’ magic to take over Africa,” Pablo wrote in an IG post. Check it out here.
‘Maan Meri Jaan’ is the most successful record from King’s Champagne Talk album. Produced by Saurabh Lokhande, the record sits at over half a billion streams across platforms and has established King as one of the most revered genre-fluid artists of his generation. However, owing to its heavy reliance on pop music, the record didn’t succeed in elevating King’s stature in India’s vivid rap scene.
Ever since the release of ‘Champagne Talk’, King has been making major global moves. Besides the upcoming collaborative effort with Ray Vanny, King closed off last year with a sold-out show in Dubai. The young emcee opened up for Post Malone in Mumbai too.
Further, the Delhi-based rapper is gearing up for his debut at the Wireless Festival in Abu Dhabi. King is just one of the three Indian acts that will perform at the highly coveted festival. Besides the ‘Carnival’ emcee, India’s Hip-Hop royalty Divine and Rajakumari will join Karachi’s Young Stunners at Wireless. Notably, global rap superstars Travis Scott and Philadeplhia’s Lil Uzi Vert will headline the March festival.
Look out for ‘Maan Meri Jaan’ Remix by King & Ray Vanny.
