Lady Gaga goes for Bollywood re-mix
Lady Gaga has released another exciting Bollywood-inspired remix of her hit single, Edge of Glory, produced by DJ Aqeel in conjunction with Desi Hits.
This latest release is part of Gaga’s ongoing march into the hearts and minds of her "Indian monsters" who have followed her every step of the way and who’s anticipation is growing given her own announcement of her pending visit to India in October.
The remix, which captures the signature Bollywood sound, delivers an energetic contemporary track featuring traditional dhol beats and Gaga’s vocals.
"We collaborated with Indian music producers from across the globe to show our respect and appreciation for our desi fans and music community," said Troy Carter, CEO of Atom Factory, Lady Gaga’s management company.
DJ Aqeel is a DJ, singer and composer from India.
He became known after his track, Shake It Daddy Mix, became popular in the early 2000s. His popularity grew further with his rendition of Yeh Wadha Raha, from the 1982 blockbuster film with the same name. His chart-topping version was titled Tu Hai Wahi.
Anjula Acharia-Bath, CEO of Desi Hits, who is working closely with Gaga’s camp on a strategy for the South Asian market, said: "Each time Lady Gaga releases a new single I get a call from Interscope and Atom factory… she never forgets her Desi fans and we always aim to create something especially for them, this time it’s with DJ Aqeel one of India’s most coolest DJ’s."
She added: "Her music has really touched the hearts of desis everywhere, so we’re helping her pursue this audience to authentically connect with both the huge diaspora and South Asia itself."
