Singers Mika Singh and Daler Mehendi have collaborated for the first time.

Singer brothers Daler Mehendi and Mika Singh have a Diwali gift in store for fans — their first-ever musical collaboration, a track titled, Soniye. “At some point or the other, Daler paaji and I were signed with different record labels, so we could not work together. But now as freelance artists, this seemed like the best time for a collaboration. It’s our Diwali gift to our fans,” says Mika.

“The track is a RnB and hip hop mix in Hindi and Punjabi. It’ll make the listener love the singing and enjoy the dance at the same time,” says Mika, who admits there was a pressure of delivering a good track. “We know that Daler paaji and I are a complete package. Fans don’t expect much from others, but they know we can deliver music with all the elements of entertainment,” he adds.

The track, which will be released around November 16, has been in the making for a long time. “It took us one year to complete this song. I took the lyrics to Daler paaji and asked him to sing it. He agreed to sing as well as star in the video,” says Mika.

As we look forward to the song, here’s the singer pointing out a coincidence about the brothers. “When Daler paaji launched his music label, his first track was Gabru, which was my song. And now, when I am launching my company, the first track will be Soniye, which will have Daler paaji in it,” he says.
