What do you get when you take 1/3 of one of our favorite boybands and a rising star out of India and put them on a song? You will get a new turbulent sensational pop tune. Nick Jonas collabs with King in ‘Maan Meri Jaan (Afterlife).’ This magnetic pop song crosses between worlds. Nick’s gorgeous voice is strong throughout the song and provides a perfect harmony with King’s. The light and dark vocal tones between the vocals above the fusion of traditional Indian instrumentals with moody and snappy pop sounds make an unforgettable pop hit.
‘Maan Meri Jaan (Afterlife)’ is the sibling of ‘Maan Meri Jaan’. That was the first non-Bollywood Indian Pop song that made the Global Spotify Daily Top Song Charts! Continuing to go after his success, King connected with Nick Jonas. Adding Nick Jonas to this version gives it a new dimension.
Nick Jonas And King Get Moody In ‘Maan Meri Jaan (Afterlife)’
Nick Jonas is not new to being a pop sensation and laying down his mesmerizing voice in moody songs. His albums Nick Jonas X2 and Spacemen show the spectrum of moodiness he places into his music and vocals. You can even hear his moody and attitude-filled singing throughout his Jonas Brothers discography too.
All of which makes Nick the perfect charismatic pick to continue elevating King’s song to new heights. Nick provides the song not only an English verse and chorus but gives us a few Hindi lyrics too. He is showing us ‘What A Man Gotta Do’ by singing Hindi to show his love and respect for the culture. And, of course, his wife, Priyanka.
You will see how enticing the song is with the interchanging verse and choruses between the two pop stars. King is becoming a force to be reckoned with within the music industry, specifically the Indian music industry. ‘Maan Meri Jaan’ has already taken over India by storm without the aid of Bollywood. Now ‘Maan Meri Jaan (Afterlife)’ is going even further.
‘Maan Meri Jaan (Afterlife)’ Has A Dystopian Music Video
You’ll want to get more of this song, and trust us, there is more than just the single to enjoy. The music video is equally moody, set in temples, a desert, and Indian backdrops. The scenery aids in the moodiness of the song. We see the two charming artists take up space and contemplate their role in dystopian-looking spaces. Nick Jonas is in a dark sunset desert and barren rock landscape. King in the water and a temple in the desert. These landscapes make it appear as if they are the only ones left in the world. Nick’s soothing voice singing, “love like a satellite, all of the stars align, no one but you and I from now until the afterlife,” fit perfectly in the lonely landscapes.
King and Nick Jonas are singing about a love that tapped into their souls that follows the “till death do us part” line in their wedding vows. The two being the only ones in existence throughout the music video represents that they are waiting to be reunited with their loved ones. It’s up to the viewer to decide if they are the ones waiting in the afterlife to reunite with their love, who will make the hostile land full of life. Or if they are the ones who are living and waiting until they love again in the afterlife.
King And Nick Jonas Are Proving Hindi Music Is Successful Globally
The success of the Hindi song has bled outside of India into the UK, New Zealand, Japan, Hong Kong, Australia, Canada, and UAE. Mixing a jolting rising star out of India with a Jonas Brother will result in an equally successful banger that will have more international fanfare. ‘Maan Meri Jaan (Afterlife)’ is a catchy and memorable song that you will want to continue listening to and embrace Indian culture.
This is not a song or a moment that you want to miss out on. We believe that you should get ahead of the curve and jam out to this English-Hindi crossover. All of us are looking forward to how ‘Maan Meri Jaan (Afterlife)’ will be changing the music industry for more English-Hindi crossovers and growing in the way that English-Korean collaborations have.
