Asim Azhar finally released his much-anticipated song Tum Tum featuring a power-pack collaboration of varied artists including Shamoon Ismail, Raamis also as Talha Anjum and Talhah Yunus of Young Stunners fame. But that’s not all the song’s main attraction is TikTok star Areeqa Haq.
Tum Tum may be a fun and light-hearted commentary on girlfriend problems within the 21st century, or more specifically about overbearing girls who hits you up for money and expensive gifts. The opening of the song gives us a touch with the old saying “If you select money over love, you’ll always be poor.” That’s not all, Hania Aamir gives us a disclaimer about what to expect as she says, ‘Jab ek baar insaan pyaar mein parh jaen naa tou ghalat bhi sahi lagne lagta ha… aur sahi tou kuch rehta hi nahi ha boss.
What ensues is five guys singing stories of their encounters with girls who act like gold-diggers because the lyrics goes ‘tere kharchay hazaroun, kiun itne nakhray palun…‘ and dispensing brand names like Gucci and Louis (Vuitton) with hints of a girl’s narcissistic behavior. The song also comments on the superficial lives of teenagers today where their days starts and ends with TikTok and Twitter trends.
The video has special appearances by Hania Aamir, Asad Siddiqui, Mooroo. The song exposes with a woman getting out of a car and concludes with Hania doing an equivalent , followed by a sudden interest of each guy then the camera tilt towards a neon sigh that says ‘life goes on’. Well… that tells something about men but here this could be a touch about the continuation of the track because it leave us with ‘to be continued’
And while it’s all fun and games, we hope that Asim or the other young artist makes a song that confronts the ‘male gaze’ also . you’ll watch the video here
