Harmeet Aulakh had moved to Melbourne in 2014 to make a living so that he could invest in his singing career. Inspired by lyricist Raj Kakra at a young age, it was no less than an achievement for Harmeet to release his first single in 2019, titled Achievement.

This lad from Vairowal, district Amritsar, soon came up with a duet song Leave It with Gurlez Akhtar featuring Himanshi Khurana. A state-level hockey player, Harmeet was in India before the lockdown to shoot for his next single. Currently living in quarantine in Melbourne, he is taking to writing his own lyrics.
