Chamak: UMX blows you away in style with his latest rap track that talks about never letting anyone takes away your shine

Brand new musical offering from Audio Only is a cool and catchy rap song. The Indian rap scene is bustling with talent, but if there’s one artist who has carved a distinct niche of his own in this space, it has to be UMX!

Capturing the rapper’s personal growth, the song emphasizes on shutting all the negative noise down to focus on inner happiness. While the title translates into ‘shine’, the song itself asks you to focus on enhancing your shine no matter what external pressure is there. Its core message “Never let others take away your shine”, conveys a message of empowerment, encouraging listeners to believe in their own capabilities and shine brightly, regardless of the obstacles they encounter.


Sung, composed and penned by UMX, with music production by Nicks Kukreja, the track boasts of a rich and rocking rhythm that immediately catches your attention. A native of mystical Kashmir, Umar Mukhtar, famously known as UMX, is a multi-talented artist who can sing, compose, write and rap with passion. Driven by the vision of building his own unique brand of sound, he is eponymous for creating a fierce and fearless fusion of hip-hop and other genres.

Talking about his latest release, UMX said, “Chamak looks back at the hurdles that society threw at me while I was climbing the ranks. The idea of this song emerged from a very personal part of my journey. I’ve always been interested in blending true and honest emotions in my work, and with Chamak, I hope to encourage people to embrace their true selves”.

Sharing his thoughts on the song, Rohit Sobti, Co-Founder of Artiste First said, “We listened to this track outside UMX home in Anantnag. This track stood out to us and we are happy with the final shape it took from Audio and Video Perspective”.
