Suneeta Rao, The 'Paree of Pop', is back with her latest album, 'Waqt'!

Recently her new album 'Waqt' was released by United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). The singer is the official spokesperson of the Laadli campaign of UNFPA that focuses on the pleasure and pride of having a daughter and motivates people to fight injustice against the girl child. 'The video of the first song in my album 'Sun Zara' is a dedication to all girls, Suneeta said. UNFPA has gratefully supported in making the video of this album. According to United Nations Population Fund, "This video has been made for the Girl Child, to address the issue of Sex Selection and to help stop female feticide".

Suneeta further added, "The only thing which is important is music, we are not looking for whether it will be a hit or not but the important thing for me is that it should be communicated.

Singers and artist like to spread social message. I earlier sang Dhuan which was against smoking.

They told that the musicality is what people will like. It has fantastic music that will remain in the heart of people. You will hear it because it makes difference to your life.

'Sun Zara' has a social message which is to protect girls. The adverse child sex ratio can severely impact the delicate equilibrium of nature and destroy our moral social fabric."

This is her fifth solo album, consisting of 8 tunes, which she describes as raga - based contemporary songs. All of them are written by Suneeta, with arrangements by NEXUS, consisting of Gino Banks, Sangeet Haldipur and Sheldon D'Silva, plus three tracks arranged by DJ Gaurav Issar.

The first single to be released will be "Sun Zara", a song for the Girl Child. This up tempo and racy song is an appeal to women, to stop the practice of sex selection. The video has been shot by Jason West and directed by Rachel Reuben. It stars Suneeta along with the actress Suchitra Pillai and will be seen on air this month.

Suneeta said,"Waqt has lots of message. It is inspired by my experience and the people I have met who enriched my life. Also about enjoying life and music.

There is one Punjabi track 'ishq da' a Punjabi track which is in Punjabi pop style. Based on longing distances. About the beauty of Indian girl. It is based on raga Thumri. She said at last I wish we have positive response for Waqt and it is in heart of everyone."
