Bilal shares his idea of beauty which is anything and everything: every colour, every form and every age. The project is a dedication to those women who stand firm in the face of ageism, racism, body shaming and objectification.
Singer-Songwriter Bilal Saeed takes the music world by storm with his latest release, ‘The Umbrella Song’ featuring Fateh Singh. Shot and directed by Adnan Qazi, the music video calls attention to modern-day female beauty standards. Bilal Saeed aims to use his art as means to break stereotypes and alter the hypocritical lens through which the realm of physical appearances is in view.
Talking about his latest release, Bilal expresses, “It feels like I’m about to release my debut song. Just as thrilled for the album and this track. I have always had issues with the way beauty is perceived, especially online and I just wanted to let every woman know that she’s beautiful because she is! Super excited about my collaboration with Fateh Singh since he was one of the artists I did my earlier songs with. It was a success then and I am hoping for similar results this time around too.”
Based out of the UK, Bilal also aspires to show the world through this song that his music label, One Two Records, is all about diversity, inclusivity and acceptance, whether it comes to the ideas they portray, the songs they release or the artists they put their faith in. Bilal himself made it past the struggles of the industry and is closely familiar with what various discriminatory barriers can do to a person’s ability to grow. The song is his endeavor to show everyone that diversity is beautiful.

The voice behind Teri Khair Mangdi, Judaiya, Baari and Baari 2 and many more, Bilal highlights how this song came into the notion. “The Umbrella Song was basically something I created for an ad. One of our finest producers here in Pakistan requested a fun track for a commercial but as I was making it, I realized how much it actually did reflect on my music and me as an artist. I immediately started working on it to make it part of my album. The video was shot both in the UK and Pakistan and went through a journey of transition and multiple shoots before I realized how exactly I wanted the product to be. Hopefully, my honesty reflects through it.”
Been in the industry for more than a decade now, he’s released singles like Mitti Da Khadona, Beqarar Dil, No Make Up (ft.Bohemia), Twinkle Twinkle (ft.Young Desi), Baarish, Allah Hoo, Suroor (ft.Neha Kakkar), Kaash (ft.Bloodline), Lethal Combination (ft.Roach Killa), Ku Ku (ft.Dr.Zeus & Young Fateh), Adhi Adhi Raat, 2 Number (ft.Amrinder Gill, Dr.Zeus & Young Fateh) to name some.
