Indo-Canadian singer, composer, and music producer Parichay has given various film songs including a remix of ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana’ and ‘O Meri Chandni’ from the film CHAAR DIN KI CHANDNI which he sang with Sunidhi Chauhan.
He also has a new single titled 'Habitaan Vigaad Di', which features Bollywood actress Nargis Fakhri & Canadian rapper, Kardinal Offishall. Nargis, made her singing debut with this song. Most recently, he released a single titled 'Saare Mundeya Nu' which features international pop/ urban artist, Sean Kingston.
In conversation with singer and composer Parichay as he spoke about his songs, working with Nargis Fakri and Sean Kingston’s concert in India.
How did you rope in Sean Kingston to do a Bollywood number, to which he said, “I have always liked Sean's music. I thought he would kill it on ‘Saare Mundeya Nu’ and since we have common friends, I reached out to him. He liked the song instantly so I flew out to LA. We got in the studio and finished the song in no time. We shot the video the next day in his crib in Hollywood Hills and I'm glad it all came together so well. This is his first ever Bollywood/Punjabi collaboration so it's a big deal and we are now working on an India tour together as well.”
Furthermore, when asked how different was it working with Nargis and Sean he is like, “Sean is a musical artist with several worldwide hits to his name with artists like Justin Bieber, Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj, Wiz Khalifa etc while Nargis is a Bollywood actress and this was the first time she ever sang on a track so they were different experiences but both were exciting in their own ways. With Sean, once I translated the Hindi/ Punjabi lyrics to him, he caught the vibe of the track/beat and sang his verse straight into the mic without writing anything down. With Nargis, we had to run through the Punjabi/ Hindi pronunciations in detail as we wanted to get it perfectly but I was amazed by her musical ability. Both Sean and Nargis have killed their parts on each song!
As remake has become a trend, should this trend of reprising songs be continued in 2018? “Music has no boundaries and is constantly evolving so I don't like putting any restrictions on it. If a musician catches a vibe and wants to ride with, then so be it, whether it's a remake or an original song. For me, music is a form of expression so it's important to be true to yourself as an artist and do what feels good. The rest is upto the fans to decide what they like and don't like,” he said
As Sean Kingston has a huge fan following, when asked Parichay if Sean Kingston will be coming to India and if he will be sharing the stage with him in his world tour, he added, “Yes, we are finalizing his India tour. He has millions of fans in India and he is aware of that. When we spoke about the tour, he said he was game right away. Yes, we will be performing ‘Saare Mundeya Nu’ together of course and we're both pumped about rocking stages across the country and partying with the fans.”
