Mainstream’s favourite rapper Badshah is making major moves for his upcoming track ‘Mercy‘. Desi Hip Hop team was one of the few invited guests to have a special preview of it. Straight out of his upcoming album, ‘Mercy’ is a groovy track, unlike his other tracks.
A quiet Badshah was sitting in the middle of the room fiddling with his phone and clicking selfies with fans simultaneously. After a short chat session, the rapper invited us all into the preview theatre. Badshah gave a brief summary of what the track is about and what the process of making it was like.
” ‘Mercy’ is unlike any other track that I have ever made. The groove on it is something you must not have heard anywhere in the world. It’s a very special song for me, as it is so different from what I have made till now. It’s not DJ Wale Babu, it is not Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai, it’s something different.”
The rapper went on to add that the lyrics, however, remain commercial in ‘Mercy’. Soon the room went dark and the unreleased audio track was played for us. After nearly 3 minutes of pin drop silence, the lights came back on and an eager Badshah turned towards his audience. Naturally, everyone was a fan of it!
Badshah revealed he has himself produced the track on his laptop, which is rather impressive. The groove certainly is an ear-worm which will rule the clubs and radio stations on its release. It sees a love-struck Badshah begging his lover to have some ‘Mercy’ on him!
We also got a glimpse of the music video, a 60-second teaser to say. Before playing the same Badshah revealed that it has been shot at three prime locations in the UK. A plane yard, a neon sign junkyard and one of the most prestigious stadiums of UK where no when has ever shot before. Its video is off the hook least to say!
‘Mercy‘ is set to release worldwide on April 1st, 2017 at 9:30 PM. Badshah has big plans for the opening of the track, from radio plays to club nights.
