This time, he has sung three songs, each belonging to a different genre, ranging from Rock to Jazz and Punjabi Sufi. Even more interesting is the fact that his first song Rockstar is going to take a dig at a vainglorious superstar’s lifestyle.

Living up to his reputation of a style icon, Ali will be seen in three different avatars for each song. The wardrobe for these looks have been designed by Ali Xeeshan.

    Probably one of the highlights of CS s8. The fusion of the western singing style (using every bit of his vocal range) and the traditional Pakistani music is phenomenal in “Rockstar”.

    Many people won’t like it, but this is talent – both raw and calculated – which only a few other singers possess. Not one wrong note. Simply brilliant!Recommend
