He is out with his latest single ‘Riski’n It All’ which was released on the 23rd of April where he talks about how not doing his best restricted his career growth. A fun story about the song is that it was written while the artist was on his way to Bangalore on a plane. He wrote this song when he finally took the leap and got out of his comfort zone in his life. He says ‘’I knew I had to take that risk to get closer to what I want and it mainly focuses on the point that I’m finally on my way to the top and make a mark and whosoever comes in my way, it’s just another hurdle for me.’’
