Earlier in October, Arooj had shared that ‘Udhero Na’ had been submitted for consideration in the Grammys. Quoting a line from the song, she said the song was about getting over an ex. “Must win for sure because we finally got over them,” she had quipped on Instagram, while sharing the news.
On November 15, the Grammy nominations were announced and it was revealed that her song had been nominated. The award show itself will take place in Los Angeles in February.
Previously Aftab became the first Pakistani to ever win a Grammy for Best Global Music Performance in 2022, for her song ‘Mohabbat’. She was also nominated for the Best New Artist.
