The British-Pakistani singer has previously released the Qawwali Urdu song "Flower" that was inspired by Malik's upbringing so this isn't his first venture into this type of music which he's spoken passionately about in the past.
A producer he worked on his first album with called 'Malay' revealed that the singer: "[Has] always been able to [sing like that] but he just never took it that seriously" until one day he "just picked up the mic".
