Named "the next big thing" by MTV India and Hello! Magazine, Abbas Hasan is best known as the French heartthrob of the Asian music scene. Winner of prestigious 2015 Artist of the Year award in his native Canada, and named one of the Top 10 Asian Artists to Watch by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), Abbas Hasan is already making waves across continents.
From singing for the Mickey Mouse Club to being photographed at Elton John's parties, the French pop sensation has already had quite a journey in the music world.
Born in Canada and raised in Paris, France, the young star burst onto the scene after signing with legendary Indian-Brit producer Rishi Rich, who is best known for his work with Jay Sean and Britney Spears among others. Since then, Abbas Hasan has caused a stir across the international stage and is also an ambassador for the Pan-Asian International Film & Music Awards (PAIFMA), and a brand ambassador for British-Italian luxury fashion brand Mastrioni as well as New York based innovative watch and lifestyle company Nooka. After performing at Priyanka Chopra's Bollywood film premiere in London and doing an advert with Shahrukh Khan, Abbas Hasan caught the attention of the Times of India group. He was selected as the only international artist to perform at the Times of India Film Awards in Vancouver, which was the largest Bollywood film awards show in history. Subsequently the multilingual star toured across Europe alongside Bollywood songstress Shreya Ghoshal, and his recent videos starring top Indian and Pakistani actresses received international acclaim through press all the way from India to Canada.
Abbas is already rumoured to be working on further Bollywood related projects, after starring in a previous Indian film with a Filmfare award-winning director. After multiple chart-topping singles, a film career in the works and an ever growing global fan following, the press are already hailing Abbas Hasan as the next big thing, to which Abbas replies, "It's flattering and I think every artist has their own soul and their own journey. For me it's all about creating art and taking on projects that inspire me."
