Released on June 21, 2024, 'Mehrbaan' represents a foray into new musical territories for both artists. Ritviz - India’s No.1 streamed Independent Artist on Spotify (2020 & 2021), whose music is more than just a sound; it's a cultural tapestry and a bridge between generations and traditions - presents the next chapter of his musical journey with a track that sonically unites audiences with a kind of magic that has you humming all day.

Raheem - Pakistan’s Breakthrough Artist of the Year (2021), a certified doctor who has taken the music world by storm with his unique blend of genres and heartfelt lyrics, dives in to deliver yet another lyrical masterpiece in his soulful voice. This highly anticipated song features Ritviz flexing his talents as composer, producer, and lyricist, crafting both the music and delivering two powerful verses. The energy shifts gears as Hasan Raheem steps in, belting out a captivating hook and bridge section, promising a dynamic and unforgettable listening experience.

"This collaboration felt like a natural progression," shares Ritviz. "Hasan's music has always resonated with me, and I believe our creative energies collide beautifully in 'Mehrbaan'. I continue to create music that inspires me, and it’s been an honour to collaborate with him on this track!"

Raheem echoes the sentiment, "Working with Ritviz on 'Mehrbaan' was an absolute joy. We connected instantly over our passion for music and storytelling, and it's translated into something truly special. This song is more than just a collaboration; it's a symbol of the bridges music can build."

Beautifully tying in the essence of both of these artists and of the unity behind the track, multidisciplinary artist Santanu Hazarika has lent his design charm to the artwork, contributing to his existing body of work in the Ritviz universe. A true reflection of the blend between the playfulness between the artists, and the integrity and unity of their work, Santanu has encapsulated his thought process by sharing that, “Ritviz & Hasan coming together seems like such an organic fit & it’s such a delight to create for both of them, especially for such a special project. It also seems like an organic way to grow alongside the Ritviz universe, where we’ve taken on a different tonality to highlight a new phase of his career.

Ritviz Srivastava, more simply known as Ritviz, is an Indian sonic architect, effortlessly blending the traditional and the contemporary. This 27-year-old singer, composer, producer and electronic dance music wizard hails from Pune, Maharashtra, and his music is a vibrant tapestry woven from traditional Indian melodies, pulsating electronic beats, and introspective lyricism.

Born into a middle-class Indian family, Ritviz's artistic journey began early. Exposed to the rich world of Hindustani classical music from the young age of 6 years, thanks to his mother Mrs. Anvita Bharti - a noted vocalist and Performing Art HOD at DPS Pune and father Mr. Pranay Prasoon, an avid tabla player and Banker. He began composing his own songs at the tender age of 11. By his teenage years, he was already delving into the world of electronic music production, his fingers dancing across the keyboard, conjuring up soundscapes that were both familiar and refreshingly unique.

In 2017, Ritviz's career took a meteoric rise with his infectious single, 'Udd Gaye'. This explosive blend of hip-hop and electronica, infused with traditional Indian elements, became the anthem of the A.I.B. Bacardi House Party Sessions, propelling Ritviz to national & international fame. Since then, he has carved his own niche in the Indian music scene, churning out chart-topping hits like 'Jeet', 'Sage', 'Liggi', 'Baaraat' & 'Aaj Na' each one a testament to his ability to seamlessly blend genres and create music that resonates with the soul.

Beyond his music, Ritviz is known for his Urban Desi DJ performances. His infectious energy and song selection transport audiences to a world where traditional instruments like the tabla and sitar coexist harmoniously with synthesizers and drum machines. He has graced the stages of renowned festivals like NH7 Weekender and Sunburn Festival, mesmerizing audiences across the country.

Ritviz's music is more than just a sound; it's a cultural tapestry, a bridge between generations and traditions. He is a torchbearer for India's sonic evolution, a testament to the power of creative fusion, and an artist who continues to push boundaries and redefine what Indian music can be. As he embarks on the next chapter of his musical journey, one thing is certain: Ritviz will continue to weave his magic, leaving audiences spellbound with every beat, every melody, and every story he tells through his music.

Hailing from the majestic Gilgit mountains of Pakistan, Hasan Raheem isn't your typical artist. This multi-talented musician, equally at home on stage or in a medical clinic, is a certified doctor who has taken the music world by storm with his unique blend of genres and heartfelt lyrics.

Coined the "Breakthrough Artist of 2021," Raheem carved a niche for himself by seamlessly weaving pop, R&B, Soul, and even Electro influences into his signature sound. His music, often described as "bittersweet," delves into the complexities of love, capturing its joy, pain, and everything in between with relatable honesty.

Raheem's journey began early, with a childhood marked by a natural inclination towards music. His first taste of the limelight came in his fifth grade, performing a popular RDB dance track. He later pursued medicine at the Bahria University Medical and Dental College, but his passion for music never dwindled. While still a student, he began writing, recording, and releasing captivating singles like 'Aisay Kaisay' and 'Joona', amassing millions of views and establishing a dedicated fan base. Raheem's collaborations with the Young Stunners further solidified his place in the Pakistani music scene. He has since received numerous accolades, including the prestigious "Breakthrough Artist of the Year" award at the 2020 Pakistan International Screen Awards.

With the release of his debut album Nautanki in 2023, Raheem continues to push boundaries and captivate audiences worldwide. He remains a testament to the power of pursuing one's passions, proving that success can be found at the intersection of dedication, talent, and a healthy dose of artistic "drama."
