Tabaahi (Stripped Down Version) by Armaan Malik and OAFF

Indian pop icon Armaan Malik and multi-award-winning composer-producer OAFF recently collaborated to release their song — Tabaahi, a feel-good pop song that talks about the feeling of solitude while being in the company of the person one loves. Seeing the massive appreciation that the song received, the artists have released a stripped down version of the song backed by the soothing tones of the piano played by OAFF and the rich notes of the cello, giving the song a much more peaceful undertone.

Raani (Palace Sessions) by Shashwat Bulusu

For years, ‘Raani’ did the rounds of WhatsApp as a forward and just like the grainy, home recording on YouTube, accumulated fans every time someone listened to it. Thousands of messages and requests later, the heart-warming song gets a do-over 10 years after it was written by an older, more experienced Shashwat Bulusu and was released to his tightknit community as a surprise drop. The minimally-produced, soothing track that's layered with with Shashwat’s dulcet vocals, is a balm for broken hearts and souls and has accumulated a significant following for its optimism and melancholy.
