Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s song “Zaroori Tha” from the album ‘Back 2 Love’ has reached 200,000,000+ official views on YouTube Vevo.
An independent non-film song, Zaroori Tha, produced by Salman Ahmed has reached on top of the charts at home, across the border and all over the world.
Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan quotes “Zaroori Tha has been a milestone for me in my career. I thank everyone who has made this happen and in particular my producer Salman Ahmed who believed in this song more than anyone else.”
The multitalented singer has also recently been honoured by Oxford University of UK by naming a rehearsal hall of the institute after his name. It was announced in a concert arranged by the university’s Faculty of Music, Rahat also performed qawwali.
This makes him the first South Asian artist to receive such an honour. Now the hall is called ‘The Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan Music Room’.
