Mohabbat is from Aftab’s third album, Vulture Prince, which was released in April and was included in former US President Barack Obama’s summer playlist for 2021. The record, which is dedicated to her late younger brother Maher, has received accolades for its passion and minimalism.
It was hailed as a “heartbreaking, magnificent account of the path from loss to acceptance” by the music website Pitchfork.
Aftab “transforms it into a slow-burn examination of the sorrow of separation,” writes the magazine, referring to Mohabbat as the album’s “centerpiece.”

It is the first-ever Grammy that Pakistanis received which is a huge achievement and proud moment for all Pakistanis. Arooj Aftab has represented Pakistan at the international level and made the nation proud.šŸ˜Š
