Azeem Haq releases visuals for his latest single “My City” featuring The Game, Lazarus, Fredro Starr and JRDN.
The Canadian artist produced and wrote “My City” originally to just be about Toronto, but when creating the beat he felt inspired to invite other artists to represent their cities: “I sent the word out to a few artists whose music I enjoyed listening to, and received a lot of positive responses. I was honoured to hear that some of my favourite artists approved to work with me. It was an interesting process
to create a song with members all around the world, but it was very efficient as everyone was a pro. I was also happy that everyone was available to be in the music video, which has gone viral.
Each artist represented their respective cities to the fullest, and brought the listeners to their hometown through the descriptive lyrics. Everyone’s tone of voice really matched the energy of the horns and drums, and it ended up being a perfect collaboration.”
Azeem is consistently in the studio creating new music, so stay tuned for more.
