On January 8, 2021, Zayn Malik dropped his new single 'Vibez, which was followed by an announcement that the 28-year-old singer will drop his newest album. The album released on January 15, 2021, since then fans are loving all the tracks.
Zayn croons legendary singer Mohammed Rafi's 'Chaudhvin Ka Chand' song in Tightrope.
The song includes the chorus from late singer Mohammad Rafi's iconic 1960s song Chaudhvin Ka Chand. As the song reached outro, Zayn can be heard singing the first four lines of the classic composition that fits right into Zayn's ballad's romantic melody.
Incorporating the Urdu verse in the beautiful track, Zayn croons, "Chaudhvin ka Chaand ho ya aaftaab ho? Jo bhi ho tum khuda ki kasam lajawab ho."
