Saba Jaswal’s latest single ‘Brave it’ is an anthem everyone, especially women, needs to listen and reflect on. It is dedicated to those who have been bullied, exploited and abused.
The song reminds the oppressed to look within themselves, understand their strength, realize their resolve and boost their determination to do better.
It implores the abused to get up, take control and make their own decisions. It urges them to stand strong against the tormentors; to thrive and not just survive.
A confident individual can be invincible and capable of so much more than the world thinks. Take your destiny in your hands and make it what you want it to be.
Penned by the vocalist, the upbeat disco era inspired tune is Saba Jaswal’s second single, and it has been produced by Natasha Humera Ejaz.
Combined with Saba Jaswal’s fierce and deep vocals, the music results in a track imbibed with confidence and unwavering strength.
Directed by Adnan Aslam and Umair Mushtaq, the video of ‘Brave it’ is a pictorial representation of power, confidence and asserting independence.
Starring Imaan Shahid, Saba Bano Malik, Sundus Jamil and the singer herself, the visual captures the multiple emotions of strength.
The song demands accountability and justice from the harassers and abusers. It confronts their methods and announces determination to stand tall against injustice.
“This single is very close to my heart, it is my way of honoring everyone – especially women who have gone through the ordeals of abuse and harassment and found the courage to move beyond it and grow, flourish and prosper,” Saba Jaswal said about the inspiration on singing and writing the single.
“With this song, I would like those who might be in terrifying situations of abuse to know that it is possible to get away, recover and start anew,” she said on the release of ‘Brave it’.
