Now this is the business!
There isn’t much I can say to convince you to buy this song, other than to point you in the direction of the video.
Kulvinder Johal, who has been around since the early 80′s, is set for a monster solo album with the aide of Tru-Skool on production.
Granted it’s a remake of a Mohammed Sadiq and Ranjit Kaur track, I think this updated track is fresh for the times. Tru-Skool shows off his flair (and his best PMC impression to date) with the use of some solid sampling of James Brown.
The song debuted at number 1 on the Official Asian Download Chart. (That’s now 2 Bhangra tracks at number 1 in consecutive weeks (PBN last week))
This song is on continuous repeat for me.

Week 2 of the Asian Download Chart took place this past Saturday. Check out how the countdown took shape here.
In lieu of the number 2 song being Foji’s “Dafa Hoja” featuring Miss Pooja, I thought we should all celebrate by watching the video. This track will be big on the dance floors this season.

This past Saturday, the first ever Asian Download Chart show began on the BBC Asian Network. Hosted by Bobby Friction, the top 40 Asian songs that were legally downloaded/sold across a seven day period were counted down.
This is a gigantic leap forward for Asian music as a whole, as it now officially puts real numbers into context, instead of people just biggin themselves up misinforming the public.
Of the 40 songs showcased, less than half were of the Bhangra variety, as Miss Pooja, Foji and Malkit had multiple entries. As expected, there were a lot of Bollywood entries, due to the sheer size of the Bollywood music listening demographic.
However, Jay Sean took the top spot with “Do You Remember,” and Imran Khan took the number 2 spot with “Bewafa.”
Take a look at the whole chart here.
I really need to state the importance of this show, as it not only clearly shows what has been popular, but hopefully, it will also drive people to actually purchase music legally, so they can see their favourite songs chart.
As stated on the Asian Network Download Charts Page; The Official Asian Download Chart is compiled by the Official Charts Company from UK sales data measured across a 7 day period from a panel of more than 25 digital retailers. (Only downloads released within the last 8 months are eligible.)
