Until the Sun Comes Up (feat. Abhishek Bachchan & Nelly) - Single
The fact that the lyric video for Raghav's new single, "Until The Sun Comes Up", quickly generated a million YouTube views testifies to the popularity of this pop/R&B/dance artist, though the presence of superstar Nelly on the track is clearly a factor too (Bollywood star Abhishek Bachchan also guests). It's a well-produced and catchy cut, so the fact it is now charting on CHR radio here is no surprise. Hits are not new for Raghav, as he sold more than than 1.5 million copies worldwide of 2004’s Storyteller, his 2012 song "So Much" (which featured Kardinal Offishall) earned him a JUNO nomination, and another track, "Fire," went gold. He has also found success in placing tracks in major Bollywood and Hollywood productions. The official video for "Until The Sun Comes Up" will be accompanied by a powerful video 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 purchased and distributed over 300 solar lights to school-age children in the small rural township of Shungubweni, in Tanzania. A new album from Raghav is coming early next year.
