Merchant Records releases their latest dance track “Beech Raaste,” featuring pop sensations Armaan Malik and Nikhita Gandhi

MUMBAI: After wowing audiences with their last track, “Maangi Duaein,” celebrated composer duo Salim-Sulaiman are out with their newest single, “Beech Raaste.” The groovy dance number has been sung by pop sensations Armaan Malik and Nikhita Gandhi. A song for those who make their own rules, “Beech Raaste” is a fun and fearless amble into the unknown. Nikhita and Armaan star as Ada and Ady, Memoji versions of themselves, in the animated music video which follows the duo escaping into the night, leaving a gorgeous sunset in their wake.

Composed by Salim-Sulaiman, “Beech Raaste” is the second release under their new record label Merchant Records in partnership with modern media firm Qyuki. Floating on a bed of evocative synth and silky electronic beats, the track is an anthem for brave souls blazing their own path. Penned by lyricist Niranjan Iyengar, the message of “Beech Raaste” is only elevated by the dreamy vocals of Malik and Gandhi, who belt unbridled about cresting the unexpected and making their own rules, while having fun along the way.

Says singer Armaan Malik,
“When I heard Beech Raaste’s demo I instantly knew it’s got this whole cool vibe to it. The funky vocal section of the song draws you in automatically. And to add the SS combo to this track, I knew right away this song will get you to dance to it. It’s amazing how my very first non-film single was a collaboration with Salim sir and now after almost 6 years on his newly launched record label Merchant Records, I am collaborating with him on a single. It’s a pretty special thing. I hope the listeners enjoy the track as much as we did while creating it.”

Adds singer Nikhita Gandhi,
“‘Beech Raaste’ is fun and funky. It’s a track that will resonate with everyone, it’s the perfect drive song! It’s been great to partner with Merchant Records and Qyuki for this special song and I’m glad this is my first collaboration with Salim-Sulaiman and Armaan! I hope ‘Beech Raaste’ encourages people to have fun along the way, while you go through your ups and downs.”

The music video for “Beech Raaste” is a fun peek into the world of Ada and Ady, who bop to the rhythm of the beat, as colorful cityscapes rise and disappear behind them. The clip sees Gandhi and Malik dawn all-new dos, turning out in pink and purple outfits, with hair to match their vibrant, fun personas. Ada and Ady are embodiments of modern-day trailblazers; sassy and expressive, fearless and brave—obstacles may lead to a curve in their path, but they’re stopping for nobody. Being in Memoji form doesn’t hinder the duo from busting out a move or two either, and it’s safe to say that “Beech Raaste” is the new dance track that’s here to make waves and inspire a new generation of dreamers.

Says Salim Merchant of Salim-Sulaiman,
“Armaan and Nikhita are beautiful voices and wonderful people. Their musical exchange is so infectious and inspiring to listeners. ‘Beech Raaste’ is an absolute earworm and we’re proud to release the electro-pop track as the second single under the banner of Merchant Records in partnership with Qyuki. Armaan and Nikhita have brought ‘Beech Raaste’ to life beautifully, and I’m sure the song is going to resonate with listeners worldwide.’

Adds Sulaiman Merchant of Salim-Sulaiman,
“We’ve really had fun working on this track, and the video will open a sea of ideas for creators to shoot music videos using the amazing Apple Memoji technology, especially in these times. We’re excited about ‘Beech Raaste.’ The idea behind Merchant Records was to release music that is fresh and exciting in partnership with Qyuki, and ‘Beech Raaste’ perfectly symbolizes the path ahead.”
