The song opens with the vocals of Rahman’s daughters Khatija and Raheema as they sing a Tamil verse. A collaboration between Rahman and U2 has certainly been a dream of many music fans.

In a conversation with Rolling Stone, Rahman spoke about the collaboration and said, ”I was in Boston that time and had sprained my leg. So I went (to New York) using my suitcase as a crutch! I met them, we vibed very well and that’s it.”
The song drops before U2 is all set to deliver its debut performance in India on December 15. For U2’s Indian fans, this certainly builds up the hype!
