It is safe to say that Hassan Raheem has become a sensation within a few years of his career and continues to win his fans over with his songs! The nation’s heartthrob has bowled his audience with his good looks, a burger-esque Urdu accent, his indie songs (which he pens himself by the way). He has good looks and a medical degree (after all we are talking about a desi, right?), what else do we need?
After giving many hits including Aarzu, Joona, Sar Phira, Darr, Aisay Kaisay, and Paisa, Hassan proceeded to what can be considered an artists dream in Pakistan – debuting in Coke Studio! Peechay Hutt, a collaborative effort of Talal Qureshi who gave the beats in the song, and an electric chorus by Justin Bibis as Hassan adds his soulful vocals, marked the latter’s debut song in Coke Studio Season 14.
