Esteemed director, producer, and musician, Mohammed K. Paika, peaks at #29 on the iTunes charts with “For The Rest Of Our Lives.” The singer-songwriter had last shared the single “Love,” a song that projects positivity, love, and everything that’s good in the world. It arrives with a music video filmed in the artist’s hometown Albuquerque, New Mexico, featuring his beautiful wife Huma.
Paika reveals that “Love” speaks to his heart, because it was shot in the city that he and his wife were married in. “We usually visit Albuquerque, New Mexico to meet our relatives, but this time our trip was focused on reflecting our passion for each other and re-exploring some of the iconic spots in Albuquerque, which include areas of Old Town as well as the famous Sandia Peak Tramway,” says the award-winning director.
“Love” is the follow-up to “For The Rest Of Our Lives,” which has earned another milestone for Paika. When speaking about the inspiration behind the special track, he admits: “It speaks about the qualities and characteristics of my beloved wife, who is also a remarkable mother. The song was composed from scratch with her thoughts in my mind reflecting our life and story together.”
Mohammed Paika blends his Eastern and Western influences into his music. Inspired by Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Ahmad bin Ali Al-Ajmi, Mohammed Rafi, Kishore Kumar, and Fairuz, the fast-rising musician plans to share more songs like “Love” and “For The Rest Of Our Lives” that integrate his multicultural upbringing and stand up for a more inclusive global community.
