The immensely anticipated music video for French pop-star Abbas Hasan’s latest single Sweet Girl is out and delivers on its promise of glamour. From the skyscrapers of Europe to elegant red carpets, the video boasts of some lavish locations. Abbas and his co-star Armeena Rana Khan have been styled by international stylist Prangsta, both looking chic.
Helmed by esteemed Persian video director Amir Taherian, Sweet Girl begins with Armeena Rana Khan seeing Abbas on-screen with another girl (cameo appearance by Humaima Malick from a scene of Away’s video). Thus starts a dark journey of obsession and black magic, in which Armeena plays a double-role, both trying to seduce Abbas.
In true Abbas style, Sweet Girl is in Urdu-English and starts out with some vocals in French. It has been produced with Rishi Rich’s protégé Naamless, and the highly enjoyable pop song has some hints of Arabic music in it. The official radio partner in Pakistan for this release is FM91.

Speaking about the video of Sweet Girl, Abbas says “It was so much fun filming Sweet Girl with Armeena. We’ve known each other well through modeling, and I knew Armeena would be perfect at playing the innocent angel as well as the dark any mysterious vampish beauty.”

He signed as the new face for international fashion brand Mastrioni’s latest campaign and now we get to see Sweet Girl release across the world!
