Gippy Grewal and Honey Singh changed the scenario of Punjabi music with Angreji Beat, a collaboration that was a game changer for both Honey Singh and Gippy Grewal. The song was loved by the Punjabi audience and the Bollywood alike. It opened many doors for Punjabi music on a whole! Gippy Grewal, who recently released the sequel of Manje Bistre threw some light on his connection with Honey Singh, his music and on how the song Angreji Beat came up, in an interview with Lallantop.
Gippy Grewal was all praises for Honey Singh and said , “Honey Singh bahut acha banda hai ……voh dil ka star hai” (Honey Singh is a very good person… he is a gem of a person) . He also came on record to admit that he literally missed our favorite Yo Yo Honey Singh and his music. He said “Bakio ka toh pta ni par Maine Honey Singh ka music miss kiya“. He also agreed on how Honey Singh’s music changed the way Punjabi music was perceived and that it opened many doors for all the stars.
Recalling their first collaboration, Gippy Grewal said, “Mujhe Diljit ne apni album sunai, Honey ke saath ki thi, abhi release nai hui thi.. toh(Diljit) kehta ki maine yeh maine album ki hai … Panga… toh mujhe bda acha lga .. toh maine Honey ko call kia .. toh voh kehta ki main aaja ….” Before this Gippy Grewal had rejected two of his songs but this time he was convinced for a collaboration. This lead to their record breaking collaboration Angreji Beat which topped the charts and brought rap scene into the Punjabi Music!
Now that Honey Singh is back, we can not contain our excitement for what the star has in store for us!
