Mumbai, April 7 (IANS) Reliance ADA Group's Big Music & Home Video Monday released Punjabi pop album 'Back Unda Da Influence', which marks the debut of Yana Gupta as a singer.

Bollywood's item girl Yana has crooned two numbers in it, 'Aag Ka Dariya' and 'Na Koi Khayal', which she penned herself.

'I write poetry and so writing songs comes naturally to me,' said the model-turned-actress confidently while talking to media persons here at the release ceremony.

Punjabi music composer and DJ Dr. Zeus has composed the album. Shortie a.k.a. Little Fox is the co-crooner. The album also introduces two new crooners, Ravindra and Karamel.

Yaana, who shot to fame with her item number 'Baabuji', said she had been living in India long enough to be able to weave a few words in Punjabi as well in the song.

The Czech-born sexy siren, who also speaks Spanish and Japanese, besides English and pidgin Hindi, revealed to the media that she had been working on a solo album in English for the last six months, which would be released in Britain shortly.

'Back Unda Da Influence' has 13 tracks, including 'Sat Shri Akal' and 'Adhi holi maar'.

The 'Sat Shri Akal' number was topped the BBC Asian Network music chart.

Dr. Zeus lives up to his image of rendering effervescent bhangra numbers, but unlike his earlier Brit Asian bhangra mixes, the songs in the album have desi flavour.

As part of the marketing initiative, Big Music is organising a mobile contest called Get Unda Da Groove In London With Dr. Zeus.

The winner will get a chance to fly to London on a two-night and a three-day tour by SMSing the correct answer to the question asked on the CDs and cassettes of the album.

The contest, which ends May 15, is also opening online.
