Get ‘Until The Sun Comes Up’ Via iTunes HERE
Today, Raghav has released his new single ‘Until The Sun Comes Up‘, via Fontana North. The track features Grammy Award winning rapper Nelly, and there is an exclusive bonus version that features the hip-hop stylings of Bollywood superstar Abhishek Bachchan.
Of the track Raghav says, “I hope people will look years from now at this song being a singular moment when east and west collaborated in a way that has a true global musical impact. And performing it with Abhishek (who is the most talented human I’ve ever met) and Nelly (who is a legend) make this song even more special to me.” Abhishek seconds that sentiment “thank you Raghav for giving me the opportunity to work with two of my favourites.”
An instant summer classic ‘Until The Sun Comes Up’ will be accompanied by a powerful video (set for release in August) – that highlights the lack of electricity in Africa. After teaming up with Solar-Aid.org (an international NGO that has the goal of eliminating the kerosene lamp from Africa by the year 2020) Raghav distributed over 300 solar lights to school-age children in the small rural township of Shungubweni, in Tanzania. Raghav purchased these lights to personally deliver them to the community.
These lights will help the students of Shungubweni Secondary School study for an extra 375,000 hours, and save their families $60,000 per light (estimated in Canadian equivalent) as they will no longer needed to buy kerosene or candles. This amounts to a significant shift towards environmental responsibility and self-sustainability for the families who have received these lights.
Originally from Calgary, Raghav has multiple top-selling hits internationally and his 2012 song ‘So Much‘ (which featured Kardinal Offishall) earned him a JUNO nomination, and his mega-hit ‘Fire’ was a certified GOLD single with more than 65,000 in sales. He’s sold 1.3 million copies of his debut album ‘Storyteller’ and his 2013 single ‘WooHoo‘ made it to the Top 40 on CHR radio for more than 6 weeks. He is recognized world-wide as a superstar performer, with a strong and supportive base in Canada.Return home
