After taking close to a year and a half to himself, Orlando-based artist Shumaq is back with a brand new single that catches fans and followers up on everything that’s been happening in his life. Originally from Pakistan, Shumaq is a versatile musician who provides a youthful tone through his catchy melodies and smooth delivery. Regarding this latest single, he shares,
With so much havoc around my personal life, I’ve continued to create music that serves as my therapeutic escape. This record demonstrates what I’ve been up to this past year since my most recent release in September of 2020. I’m healthy, prosperous, and optimistic for future releases. “Meanwhile” lets my fans and followers be up to speed with this beautiful life of mine.
A pleasant mix between indie and alternative hip-hop, “Meanwhile” reflects the positive outlook that Shumaq has focusd his time on building. As a plucky instrumental sets the upbeat tone for the track, smooth tones and silky bars add to the chilled-out vibes that give listeners a good groove to nod our heads to. Shumaq carries a conversational and light-hearted mood within his vocals while a catchy chorus ties a bow on the entire track. Although this track is being released in winter, it’s a must-have for summer time because if this doesn’t make you feel like you need to cruise with your windows down, I don’t know what will.
