Badshah: I have no qualms being compared to Yo Yo Honey Singh

MUMBAI: With foot-tapping party numbers like 'Abhi Toh Party Shuru hui Hai' and 'Saturday Saturday', rapper Badshah is carving his niche in tinsel town. The rapper has no fear of being stereotyped or being compared to his contemporary- Yo Yo Honey Singh. He deems that Bollywood is big enough to accommodate many more rappers like him.  

"Comparisons are bound to happen between Yo Yo and me, as we sing the same genre of songs. Also in India there are not many eminent rappers so I am fine with people comparing me. I have no qualms being compared to Yo Yo Honey Singh" said Badshah.

According to him rapping holds an edge over singing as one can easily grab the attention of the audiences with the melody, but rapping has no melodies. "It is the quirkiness that grabs the ear buds. I am extremely meticulous about the songs I write and make sure that I create something that is heard before," he explained.

When asked about his upcoming projects in Bollywood, he remained tightlipped about the same but added that a new single will be released in January 2015 under Sony Music. "The shooting for the song will resume soon and we are planning to a feature a Bollywood actress," revealed the 'Proper Patola' singer.

The rapper will soon be performing for the first time in Mumbai on 3rd December 2014 for Outcry Entertainment and has a special gift for concert attendees. "Hailing from North India, people over there have a lot of misconceptions about Mumbaikars, but when I came here the case was different. The love that has been showered on me by Mumbaikars is amazing. Thus, I plan to write a special song for them," he said.

Despite performing for a while now, he still develops cold feet before each of his performances. Talking about pre gig preparations, he elaborated, "It is mostly about sound check and right before the performance, I like to have silence around me. I get really annoyed even if a phone rings around me. Silence helps me focus better."

His playlist encompasses all genres of music. "I listen to almost anything and everything that pleases my ears. Be it a ghazal, or something as international as Coldplay or even EDM," he said signing off.
