MUMBAI: Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra is flying high these days. What with her latest film ‘Barfi’, the story of a deaf-mute boy and an autistic girl, garnering an astonishing 100+ crores at the box office, and her singing career off to a flying start, the lady is surely on Cloud number 9!
Her second international pop single, ‘Erase’ is out now. The song is an original track by the band ‘The Chainsmokers’, which includes New York-based producer/DJ duo Andrew Winter and Alex Pall.
Says Priyanka, visibly excited about her new venture, “Music for me has been a very organic process. I have been fortunate enough to work with the best and the most passionate people in the business. I have my team to thank for ‘Erase’.”
While her second single is out, Priyanka is also very excited and grateful for the audience response to her very first single, ‘In My City’, featuring Will.I.Am of ‘The Black Eyed Peas’ fame.
The sales of ‘In My City’, she asserts, had crossed 100,000 mark within a week of its release.
Says the Bollywood actress and International pop sensation, “I don’t think anybody expected that, you know, these kind of numbers would happen in India, a market where you don’t see that kind of numbers for music. It’s really fascinating and exciting for us that it does happen.”
She also added, “You know it has broken such barriers which will open up music to Indian culture. And we have so much talent in India when it comes to music that I hope this springs opportunities for so many other artists in India.”
