Britney Spears is going desi again, and this time, she’s teaming up with singer Sonu Nigam.
The ‘Till the World Ends’ singer has confirmed that she invited Bollywood singing sensation, Sonu Nigam to collaborate with her on her new album. Sonu Nigam will be adding his vocals to her latest track, ‘I Wanna Go’ in conjunction with ‘Desi Hits!’. The track is to be produced by DJ Lloyd.
Spears told ‘Desi Hits!’ “I’m so excited about having Sonu on ‘I Wanna Go’. His vocals add such a different feel, which I love! Watch out Bollywood – it’s Britney and Sonu!“.
With his magical Hindi vocals, Sonu mirrors Britney’s vocals throughout the club track, combined with fused Indian instrumentals that add a unique and different vibe. Occasionally Sonu sings in English, and adds some of his own songwriting skills to the track, bringing it closer to his Indian audiences.
Nigam is as thrilled. “It’s awesome to collaborate with Britney. This is her first big step into Bollywood. I’m looking forward to many more.” he says.
In the past, Spears has worked with Brit-Asian producer Rishi Rich to remix her track, Me Against the Music, and also donned lehenga during her 2008 Circus tour.
