Ranveer Singh, who is admired for his undaunted & blithe behaviour, never seems to miss the limelight. Recently, he was in the news for promoting a Denmark based world famous fashion brand, Jack & Jones through a rap track. ‘Don’t Hold Back‘ came out in the first week of October & instantly trended as it was Ranveer who actually dubbed a track.
He actually wrote and recorded the whole track as well as being featured in a video that Jack & Jones sponsored. ‘Don’t Hold Back’ is rebellious in nature and it’s sound is a fusion between two popular genres namely Hip-Hop & Electronic music. It was composed by Anushka Manchanda & Shikhar Manchanda. Ranveer Singh is also staring in Zoya Akhtar‘s movie that is based on the journey of a street rapper of achieving the ultimate fame.
“I don’t pay attention to the haters talkin’ trash”
‘Shehar Mera Chandigarh‘ fame duo Kru172 just released a cover of the same track today on their Youtube channel. This cover version is a Punjabi remix of the original single & is in typical Kru172 style. Nav Singh who is popular by his stage name ‘Nottotune‘ opens up the track with a few lines that he spat in English & then his verse immediately transits into Punjabi. Harsimran Jit Singh who’s alias is Lucky goes second on the track & took over the control and also raps in Punjabi. He also did the hook which has some real energetic vibes to it.
The video for the cover version features Dancing Shadows Crew. They definitely did some moves in front of the camera that are not easy to do. Overall, this is a track that will calm their fans for sometime as they’ve been expecting something from them. Before this one, ‘Shehar Mera Chandigarh’ was their last serious rap single that the underground witnessed. Let’s hope that they put out some more of their music from their workstation soon.
