'Mixtape Punjabi' features Gippy and Harrdy; Neha Kakkar raps

MUMBAI: It's difficult to not get addicted to T-Series' Mixtape Punjabi. It gradually grows on you and we wouldn't be lying if we'd say that we are liking this more than the first season. It's got the dance beats and the good-looking Punjabi mundas killing it with their looks and voice.

Well, the latest episode of Mixtape Punjabi is here and this time it features Gippy Grewal, Harrdy Sandhu and Neha Kakkar. Yes, Kakkar is back, she last featured in the recreated version of High Rated Gabru/ Ban Ja Rani. This time she got on the stage with Punjab da hotties and crooned to Car Nachdi / Hornn Blow.

Having peppy, party and melodious songs to her credit, Neha Kakkar, shares her experience on rapping for the first time ever saying, “Initially I was hesitant about rapping but Bhushanji convinced me to do it. Having done playback singing and live performance for so many years, I am rapping for the first time for an episode of Tseries MixTape Punjabi. My performance is along with Punjabi singers Gippy Garewal and Harrdy Sandhu on their respective songs Car Nachdi and Horn Blow as I rap Bohemia’s part from Gippy Garewal’s song Car Nachdi. While Gippy and Harrdy’s swag was bang on while performing, I not only had to rap but groove along with them too, which was quite challenging. The rap was quite a tongue twister but they were extremely patient and helped me out with the same too. After a couple of takes we perfected our moves to complement each other. Post the shoot, Abhijit Vaghani even complimented me suggesting that I should consider rapping at an international level , which was pretty humbling.”

Singers Gippy Garewal and Harrdy Sandhu comment, “Performing together on stage along with Neha Kakkar was a brilliant experience. Both these songs have been hits and it will be interesting to create a mashup of them. Our chemistry is amazing on stage and it reflects well in the video too. Neha has done full justice to Bohemia’s rap too.”

Music Director Abhijit Vaghani further adds, “Both the titles represent cars so we knew right away that they could be combined into a mashup and their tempos also matched. We kept the Punjabi elements with tumbi, dhol, etc.”

Commenting on Neha’s rap, Abhijit says, “Neha Kakkar can sing fast and the movements required for a rap are swift, which she has. I was extremely confident that Neha would be able to pull it off, as for a rap you need breathe control and sing a load of lyrics, which she managed very well. The lyrics belong to Gippy Garewal’s song with whom she is performing and she truly did full justice to it. She grooved on stage along with her rap too."

The trio looks spectacular and they sound pitch perfect. One would definitely want to dance to this Mixtape track. Don't miss on Kakkar's rap. We love this woman!
