Having launched her new song Heere Heere during Diwali this year, ‘Let’s Dance’ fame singer CJ rose to new heights in the music space. The talented singer has dedicated the chart buster to two stalwarts of the Punjabi music fraternity, SurinderKaur, who rendered her mesmerizing voice to the original song, and legendary lyricist and poet Shiv Batalvi.
The Chandigarh-based girl who is all set to make her Bollywood singing debut in ‘Googly Ho Gayi’ releasing next year says, “I have grown up listening to and getting inspired by the greats of Punjabi music. And Surinder Kaur has been such a massive inspiration for so many generations. I used to dream about being able to dedicate something to her memory and when the opportunity came forward, I jumped and took it with almost a child-like enthusiasm.”
“Shiv Batalvi’s works, as we all know are once in a lifetime experience. His lyrics have had a life of their own and this is our humble attempt to pay homage to the man, whose legend has grown as the years have gone,” she adds.
Talking about her debut song, which was on top of the music charts within the first week, CJ informs, “We were touching upon a totally different genre and some people raised eyebrows, but the challenge was exactly what drove me and the rest of the team too. We have put our soul into the song and I am sure people will see it and show it the same amount of love, if not more.”
