Armaan Malik – “next 2 me” lyric video
“The global lockdown has been tough on all of us, especially for those who are quarantined away from their loved ones. I wanted to capture that feeling of missing someone and wishing that they were next to you. We may have all the devices in the world to keep us connected but having that person next to you is a different feeling altogether. Something that no digital connection can ever compare to.” – Armaan Malik
‘next 2 me’ follows hot on the heels of Armaan Malik’s first English-language track, entitled, “Control”. His collaboration with industry vet, Wayne Wilkins (Natasha Bedingfield, Beyoncé) has accumulated over 35 million streams online and viewed almost 27 million times on YouTube.

“Guess I’m under your control, I can’t take it any, anymore. How you gonna play me like that? Why you gon’ make it complicated? You won’t even text me back, you know the ways to keep me waiting. Say I’m done till you tell me come over. I can’t help myself. Now I’m under your control and I can’t take it anymore. We should make this personal, why can’t you just close the door.” – lyrics
