Bakar releases his first single of the year with ‘The Mission,’ a superb track that is taken from his upcoming album.
This talented artist has been on the rise for quite some time, having collaborated with the likes of Dominic Fike, BENEE, Kenny Beats and Lancey Foux, and has fans in everybody from Kendrick Lamar and Elton John to Skepta and the A$AP mob.
“To me, the song is about the want and need for a better future, especially for 1st generation kids of immigrant backgrounds – telling our stories is so important. I’m trying to represent and reclaim my Islamic faith for a new progressive generation. This is ultimately about peace but so often our symbols and flags have been hijacked for the wrong purposes. I see what’s happening in Kabul this week and pray for the people there.”
