Twenty-one year old Bahjat is a rising pop singer and songwriter, determined to establish himself in the international music scene.
He was only 15 years old when he uploaded his first cover on YouTube. Back in 2010, he enjoyed singing and sharing his passion with the world, but when he managed to accumulate over 80,000 views and 1,000 subscribers in just a few months, Bahjat realised his potential and decided to take time off to develop himself as a songwriter.
In 2014, Bahjat stepped into the studio with producer Trevor Kissaun to work on some of the material he had written, and together, they produced several songs. One of these was Stand Tall, which was later released as Bahjat’s first buzz single in 2015. The accompanying video focused on delivering a message of unity, tolerance and inclusion, and featured the world renowned student organisation AIESEC, as well as people from all around the world who had sent in their own videos of them dancing to the song.
Talk to Me is another track that had emerged from his studio sessions with Trevor Kissaun, and features the work of Peter Borg and UNIK (Chris Brown, Nelly). This pop song tells a relatable love-at-first-sight story of falling for a girl without knowing anything about her – not even her name.
Premiering on the 10th October during an interview on Bay Breakfast With Ylenia, Talk To Me immediately started spreading. It debuted on the Bay Top 10 Malta charts that same evening, climbing to #3 just a week later. It now sits at #2 after two weeks of its premiere.
The music video for Talk to Me was produced by VSquared and features rising Maltese model and actress Sarah Zerafa. The video is inspired by personal events, and Bahjat manages to tell the story in an incredibly charming way. With the launch of his new single, Bahjat is already thinking about the direction he wants to take next and, he’s excited to continue evolving and sharing his experiences with the world.
