"Hello Mr. DJ, Mera Gaana Please Play
to our lovely BollyCurry readers! We are back yet again with another
edition of Yo Mr. DJ feature and this time our focus is on the trend of
rapping in Bollywood songs.
recent times, there has been much experimentation with the different
styles of music in Bollywood and the choices of various music composers
has reflected this diversity in the music industry. Ranging from hip-hop
to semi-classical, romantic to jazz, the blues to pop, and now remixes
and rap, each genre of song and music has been appreciated by fans all
over. Music listeners eagerly await the next release by their favourite
singers, and play the tracks they love over and over again.
is slowly but surely becoming more prominent in the music industry.
There are few rappers in Bollywood, but boy, are they talented! Names
such as Hard Kaur
and Yo Yo! Honey Singh
, along with actors like
and Ranveer Singh
are behind the fantastic rap tracks
to grace the Bollywood music charts. We at BollyCurry have shortlisted
just five of these tracks for you to add to your party playlists.
"Right Here Right Now"- Bluffmaster'Abhishek Bachchan
Come to me, bhool jaaye sara jahaan.
Come to me, hum banale apni nayi jagah...'
made his singing debut with the song "Right Here Right Now" from Bluffmaster
in the year 2005. Bachchan Jr. did
a wonderful job matching his rapping skills with singer Sunidhi
Chauhan's stunning vocals. The movie gave the actor an opportunity to
showcase his singing capability, as well showcase the acting talent he
got from the legendary Bachchan family. The song did extremely well and
remained as a top chartbuster song for quite some time. The song is
still one of the favourites of avid rap listeners and party-goers.
"Chaar Botal Vodka"- Ragini MMS 2
'Chaar bottle vodka kaam mera roz ka.
Na mujhko koi roke, na kisi ne roka...'
Yo! Honey Singh
obviously had to grace the list of rappers in this
special rap edition of Yo Mr. DJ. It is not much to say that no
Bollywood project is now complete without this wonderful singer lending
his voice to at least one track in the film. Doubters and nay-sayers
are hard pressed to deny that the man is blessed with immense talent
when it comes to rap, and can be considered one of the leading rappers
in Bollywood today. "Char Botal Vodka" is a hard-hitting track that is
enjoyed at parties across various nations.
Anna ke jaisa chashma lagake.
Coconut me lassi milake.
Aa jaao sare mood banake...'
the fact that Yo Yo! Honey Singh
is one of the few Bollywood rappers
who has become the talk of Bollywood with his music, it should not be
surprising that another of his songs is on this list "Lungi Dance" had
the world going crazy at parties and weddings, with its catchy lyrics
and beats. Featuring the one and only Shah Rukh Khan
the stunning Deepika Padukone
in this ode to Rajnikanth, this song has
been played repeatedly and took the audience's heart overnight.
"Laung Ka Lashkara"- Patiala House
'Got the feeling now that makes me wanna move.
If you feel the same then you should do it too...'
Next on our
list is Hard Kaur
, who we can probably hail as the first female rapper
of our country. Singing alongside Mahalakshmi Iyer
and Jasbir Jassi, the
song paved its way to the top when the movie was released. This is a
full on entertainment package with Jugal-Bandi
between the Hindi
lyrics and the rapping. Akshay Kumar
and Anushka Sharma
danced along to
the track in the movie, in which Hard Kaur
also had a role, playing a
wannabe rapper. With an amazing grasp of both Hindi and English,
the woman can rap fluently in both, a feat that is stunning to hear.
"Chaar Bajj Gaye" - F.A.L.T.U
'Aaj hai Friday night, main chalun apne friends ke saath,
Random spinning wheels meri boom boom car,
Laga ke CD player hum toh chale hain tayaar.'
one of Hard Kaur
's hits, and a top favourite of the younger generation,
would be "Char Bhajj Gaye". The tagline of the song "Char Bhajj Gaye
Lekin Party Abhi Baaki Hai" attracted millions of fans throughout the
world before the movie was even released. No surprise then that this
song was, and still is, a favourite to keep the party going all night
star Ranveer Singh
is also a talented rapper, having lent his skills to
advertisements and small screen appearances. Who knows, he may soon
grace the music charts as well! In addition to the few
songs above are many more such as "Sunny Sunny", "Talli", "Follow Me",
"Main Tera Dhadkan Teri" and "Angrezi Beat". These have been playing
over and again at parties and dances, as the beat never seizes to get
everyone grooving on the dance floor.
