Following the success of Kadi Te Hans for Velo Sound Station, Atif Aslam recently performed at the PSL opening ceremony, however, his performance failed to leave a lasting impression. But disappointed fans should rejoice as the singer is back with an original song titled Raat that is dedicated to the beauty and mystery of the night.
