From Islamabad to Los Angeles, singer-songwriter and performer Parisa Bilal shares an emotional anthem with her latest sincere single, "Abandoned."

With each release, Parisa Bilal forms a deeper connection with her listeners. Her velvety vocals and contemporary instrumentals/production share bits of modern pop but with a composed adult contemporary feel.

That statement rings true when it comes down to Parisa Bilal's latest single, "Abandoned," perhaps the most emotional song of her discography. She breaks down every wall to express those bottled-up emotions while trying to keep them together for the sake of her loved ones. The song is simply a page ripped out of Parisa Bilal's diary.

Expanding on the new single, "Abandoned," the experience opens with Parisa Bilal's emotional vocals alongside melancholy piano melodies that dance in the background. Listening to Parisa's honest lyrics, she expresses those turbulent emotions that come with feeling "Abandoned" and coming to terms with the cold hard truth.

Parisa Bilal uses the hook to dive even deeper into those emotions, singing about needing a reason to keep going and pick herself back up.

As we move forward, Parisa Bilal lets us know that she wrote the song for the world to know her story, something millions of others can relate with. A compelling and dynamic song like this moves mountains, maybe not for you, but for someone battling through their issues with silence.

When you're in need of something your mind and heart can relate to, we'd point you toward Parisa Bilal's latest single, "Abandoned," now available on all digital streaming platforms.

Welcome to BuzzMusic, Parisa. We feel that emotion and strife you've put into your latest single, Abandoned. What inspired this vulnerable and heartfelt piece?

"Abandoned" is the story of my life; the secret about my life is what inspired this vulnerability. I recorded this song in hopes of finding closure, but that is going to take time, and who knows, maybe I might never even get closure from it. Just that thought of putting my story out there is kind of a relief to me, and I hope there are people out there who can connect to my song.

Is this song about your biological mother or someone special in your life?

This song is especially for my mom, she is very much like a biological mother. As mentioned in my song, “I was left to die when I was born. This is a secret never told.” At the age of sixteen, I found out from a third person that I’m adopted. I had never known this; it was always a “secret never told.” My mom adopted me, and she never made me feel like I was adopted. Even my entire family never made me feel like I’m not there. I am very blessed to be who I am today because of my mom and very blessed to have such a loving family.

We feel we know the answer, but who is the most influential person in your life?

You got that correct! My mother is the most influential person in my life. She raised me, took care of me, and supported me all on her own. She has always been like a father to me and also to my mother, and I am very lucky to have her in my life.

Would you say that consuming or creating music has been more therapeutic in your version of life's journey?

Well, I just started creating my own music, to be honest. I’ve been singing my entire life, and I never knew how to write a song. When the pandemic hit towards the end of December 2020 is when it just clicked one night in my sleep. I started to get words in my mind along with the tune, so I would wake up in the middle of the night, no matter what time it was, and open the voice notes app and record the lyrics along with the tune. When I would wake up the next morning, I would have one completed song. But yes, ever since I started writing, I am happy for the fact that I can finally be able to put my feelings out there in my songs and share my thoughts with the world.

What's next for you?

I am in the middle of trying to complete some of the songs which I have written down, and hopefully will be releasing another song soon. Rest; only time will tell. I’m hoping for the best and looking forward to what’s yet to come.
