Known for songs such as Swag Mera Desi (which won the ‘Best Urban Song’ at the Britasia Music Awards, 2014) to his well known promotion music video for Vodafone U, Raftaar is now all set to release his musical gems on the next album titled Zero to Infinity. He will release singles from the album through the year and unveil the fill album end of 2016. Raftaar’s idea with this album was to not only rap but also tap into his production skills. The 27-year- old will not only write and deliver the songs but will also record it in his studio. A project that is very close to his heart, the album as the title reflects is his musical journey from nothing to achieving everything he wanted to.
