LAHORE: After taking social media by storm with his intriguing posters, singer/songwriter Jimmy Khan has released his much-anticipated single titled “Madam”.
The audio has been exclusively released on Patari and the video on Jimmy Khan’s official Facebook fanpage.
With “Madam”, Jimmy intends to project the everyday life of the transgender community in Pakistan. It is also a reflection of how cruelly we as a society treat the transgender community.
“Musically, I had composed ‘Madam’ over a year ago and recently revisited it with producer Zain Ahsan. We have experimented with the sound and made it electronic with the help of different instruments; it is a sound not typically what you would expect from me. The song and its video intends to project the everyday life of the transgender community in our society. The mockery, harassment and problems that they go through, that have become their fate. In our spurn and mockery of the community, what have we ourselves become? ‘Madam’ is just a mirror for us all to reflect upon our actions,” Jimmy said.
The video’s narrative chronicles a day in the life of transgender community members Lucky Khan and Nirmal Chaudary. The video features Jimmy himself along with musician Zain Ahsan, adventurer and biker Moin Khan, Azad Bahadur Masih, Saad Deebaj Syed, Ahmed Mustafa, Ali Ahmed Khan, Ghulam Murtaza, Daniyal Nasir, Sarmed Aftaab Jadran, Hamza Arshad, Aayan Arif and Bhola Bhai.
