Praak was born as Pratik Bachan in Chandigarh. His father, Varinder Bachan, is a well known Punjabi music producer and composer. He is known to frequently collaborate with lyricist Jaani. Their song Filhall has been viewed over 600 million times on YouTube. He later debuted in 2018 as a singer with the single Mann Bharrya, and has frequently worked with Jassi Gill and Harrdy Sandhu, between whom the latter was his first collaborator as a singer.
Praak later made his Bollywood debut, first as a singer with the song Teri Mitti from the Hindi film Kesari starring Akshay Kumar and Parineeti Chopra, written by Manoj Muntashir and composed by Arko Pravo Mukherjee, and months later as a composer with a recreation of his hit song Naah, titled Naah Goriye, which was featured on the soundtrack of Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Bala. During this time, he also shot a promotional video with Kumar for his second song as a singer, Ali Ali, which was featured on the soundtrack of Sunny Deol and Karan Kapadia starrer Blank, while next crooning a remake of the popular song O Saaki Saaki for Batla House, written and composed by Tanishk Bagchi, where he sang alongside Neha Kakkar and Tulsi Kumar, in his first multi-singer song. He next reunited with Kumar for the comedy-drama film Good Newwz, crooning the song Maana Dil, composed by Bagchi and written by Rashmi Virag. Additionally, he recorded a reprise version of the song Dilbara from the 2019 remake of the popular film Pati Patni Aur Woh, which was composed by Sachet-Parampara and written by Navi Ferozpurwala, and again in his first duet with Sunidhi Chauhan for the song Bharat Salaam, which was written and composed by Mithoon, and featured on the soundtrack of Hotel Mumbai.
