And, more than that, I was just happy to be in his company and learn a lot of things from him. Because, he for me is like a higher power,.I composed and wrote the lyrics for the song and sent it to him. When it came back, it was a different song. I was literally crying listening to my composition in his voice. That was an almost supernatural catharsis.”

Moreover, he also addressed what inspired him to make the album, “I consider myself as a listener as well, and I could feel the generation change. I was trying to find my own self, my own personality, my new sound, the direction where I want to go the, the narrative that I want to build myself, the stories that I want to tell, and hence, it [“Ek Tha Raja”] was the result of all this contemplation.”

He also added, “Then I just realized, people want to listen to who I am. And people love me the way I am. So, I don’t need to change. And that’s what I did with this album, I have collaborated with some of the new artists who are doing really good work. I have moved out of my zone, I made them move out of their zones, we’ve come in a middle place and tried to create a new sound. And that’s the fun of a collaboration. When two songs collide, it’s like two colors combining to make a new color.”
