The Indian superstar has made us the perfect “missing you” playlist.
Following the release of his English-language track “Control”, Indian singer-songwriter Armaan Malik is back with his bouncy pop track “next 2 me”. Having garnered over a billion streams and performed over 200 shows around the world, the musical sensation has emerged as one of the brightest talents in India for his versatility and soul-stirring lyrics.
We caught up with the cross-over artist, as he gives us his perfect “I miss you” playlist featuring artists such as Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber and Michael Bublé.
Check out the playlist below…
Joe Cocker – “Ain’t No Sunshine”
It’s a classic cover and my all-time favourite track, I still cannot skip this when this song pops up in the shuffle!
Justin Bieber – “Nothing Like Us”
This is one of my favourite Justin Bieber songs. People know him for the “Sorry’s”, the “What Do You Mean’s”, and the “Yummy’s” of the world but I really feel ballads suit JB’s voice so well. Over the years, we have all seen him grow exponentially as an artist and I feel like this particular song is where he started exploring his strengths.
Michael Bublé – “Home”
This song used to be my only companion during those times when I was on the road touring and had not seen my family..
Ed Sheeran – “Supermarket Flowers”
Ed’s a genius when it comes to words! This particular song is just perfect and right where it needs to be – serene!
Aerosmith – “I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing”
When I was studying at Berklee College of Music during the summer of 2011, we all had been asked to cover a pop/rock song and I very clearly remember this was the first song I had prepared for class. It just has so many fond memories attached to it. The energy and dynamic that this track has is just beautiful!
Lauv – “For Now”
I don’t think Lauv has ever made a bad song. His lyrics hit the right chord just about every time. This one right here perfectly describes every lover’s current situation.
Clean Bandit – “I Miss You” ft. Julia Michaels
I love the arrangement on this song and Julia’s vocals are the right puzzle piece for this track. It just brings the whole song together, really love this record!
AJ Mitchell – “Like Strangers Do”
This song is so chill. I just feel like putting my joggers on take a walk around the street, listening to this on repeat. This song is a whole vibe!
Kina – “Wish I Was Better” ft. yaeow
If I had to pick one song to describe the night, it’d be this song. It settles on such an easy, chill melody but it’s powerful. It’s magnificent!
ILLENIUM, Georgia Ku – “Hold On”
This song makes me want to attend a stadium concert and just go lose myself to the energy of the pulsating beats. The drop on this track is everything!
