Honey Singh released his own version of the cult song ‘Dheere Dheere’ in August 2015. I remember the mixed reactions it got from the listeners but in a world where every song seeks validation in the number of views, the song did quite well on YouTube. Hate it or love it but 200 Million views is a monumental figure for any vocalist. The video featured Sonam Kapoor and Hrithik Roshan and was shot in exotic locales of Turkey. The original ‘Dheere Dheere’ was sung by Kumar Sanu and Anuradha Paudwal and is a still a favourite especially for the older folks.
Honey Singh has been maintaining a low profile since he came out about his Alcoholism and Bipolar Disorder. In a tell-all interview in 2016, he spoke about how bipolarity affected his life. He was staying in Noida for almost 18 months during his treatment but it did not give the desired results. Rumours have flown around about him coming out with a new album and he did mention making music at home but we have not heard anything significant in quite some time.
Our scene has seen many rappers and many of us have openly hated Honey Singh, but for a lot of the ‘Janta’, Honey Singh is still the man. Hate it or Love it but prior to Dheere Dheere, the singer had songs like ‘Dope Shope’, ‘Angreji Beat’ and ‘Desi Kalakar’ which would be played on the on the radio and TV all day. Honey has mentioned that he will be making a come back soon but we are clueless about when will this soon arrive so till then listen to ‘Dheere Dheere’ by Honey Singh:
