Composer Amaal Mallik gives us the lowdown
The buzz on Ready To Move aka ‘The Prowl Anthem’ is deafening, In case you didn’t know (or are living under a rock), it’s a promotional single crafted by Amaal Mallik with Armaan Malik lending his voice for Tiger Shroff, who’s launching an ‘active lifestyle’ brand.
We ask Amaal to walk us through the making of the track. So, here it is…
WORKING WITH TIGER
Amaal reminds us that this isn’t his first collaboration with the youth icon. “We have collaborated on several occasions and the outcome has always been wonderful. In fact, our combination has been loved and blessed. Right from Zindagi Aa Raha Hoon Main and Chal Wahaan Jaate Hain to Sab Tera.
He continues, “Tiger is family. His enthusiasm is something that drives me to give my best. He is a dream to work with, very creative and always ready to go the extra mile.”
ABOUT THE PROWL ANTHEM
Amaal tells us that “trying a new genre is always fun with Tiger”. He adds, “The tagline and the song… it’s called Ready To Move… is what the brand is about.”
“Kunaal Vermaa has written some young and rebellious lyrics and people are going to be surprised with what Armaan has done with this track. He sounds really fresh and his voice was apt for this track. Once you hear him in the video (directed by Adil Sheikh), you’ll know how well his voice suits Tiger,” he says.
“The song’s based in the moombahton genre and has a heavy bass line and a catchy synth hook. I’ve woven in a simple melody and fused it with Latin-American rhythms, dancehall and a little bit of vocal sampling,” he shares.
Moombahton is a genre popularised by Major Lazer and DJ Snake and Amaal says he feels that “audiences across the globe is really appreciative of the genre. I’m sure this will be the next big genre for dance music in India as well”.
THE ‘PROWL’ BRAND
He reveals the idea behind the much-awaited music video. “It’s Tiger’s brand & he is featuring in the music video and he felt if we did a music video it would be fun, as people have been waiting for us to collaborate,” shares Amaal. “The brand promotes a simple idea of not being bogged down by anything, listening to the voice within, dance, have fun, be prepared to fall, but pick yourself up and keep moving forward in life. It’s a message we are giving out without being too preachy,” he concludes.
