British singer-songwriter Jay Sean has gone desi yet again. The 32-year-old rapper is back with the Hindi remake of his popular single, Back to Love, in collaboration with Indian classical musician Falu.
So, why another Hindi single? “After making Hindi versions of three of my singles, I enjoy producing such songs. I knew Back to Love would sound beautiful in Hindi. I knew that the melodies would work perfectly. So Falu and I re-wrote the second verse,” he says. Sean had released Hindi remakes of his singles, Ride It, Stay and Maybe in 2008. “The desi market has always supported me. It has been a big part of who I am as an artist. So, people are used to me doing things like this,” he adds.
Sean’s first collaboration with an Indian singer was in 2011 when he worked with Sonu Nigam for the single, The One. “I’ve worked with Sonu Nigam of course, he’s a beast of a vocalist! There are so many talented singers in India,” he says. On collaborating with artists, he says, I am open to collaborating with many people, so long as the songs are good, the art is respected and I have fun doing it,” he says.
