Annie’s New Album, the Controversy and the Reality

By

After reading some controversial comments by Annie on certain blogs, out of sheer curiosity, I called up some of my journalist friends and people from the music industry to find out the facts behind the matter and here is the truth.

It is said that some two years ago Annie tried to release her new album with The Musik Records, the head of which is Mr. Danish Khawaja, the brother in law of Annie. After listening to the initial album, The Musik rejected the album refusing to release it, let alone invest in it. Once rejected Annie turned to the largest record label of Pakistan, Fire Records. After listening to the album, it is said that Fire also rejected the album.

After turning her down, many established people from the music industry started to call Fire to request them to release the album. After constant chase, Fire agreed to the project but on one condition that the songs that were part of the initial album were so poor that they were not worth releasing thus Fire would produce a fresh new album at its own cost.

Annie’s Leaked Album Review

by Hasan Faridi

Track leaks are normally godsends, but it’s a sticky situation with Pakistani Pop Singer Annie where people are feeling a mix of confusion, shock and awe. Most of Annie’s upcoming album hasn’t even been scheduled for release, yet most of it has made its way over the Internet by an unidentified sneaky source.

Growing up with a passion and desire to pursue in the field of music, Annie took up extra-curricular activities related to music to achieve her dream. To kick-start her passion, she wrote a song named “Mahiya” at the age of 18, a song sung in English and Urdu. The mix of languages can also be seen in her songs today, combining East with West.
