One of the stand out Punjabi artists of this decade has been music producer Honey Singh. A decade that has seen amazing musical highs and some personal lows for the Delhi based producer. Honey Singh is now finishing off this decade with a return to his Punjabi music roots. Honey Singh teaming up with Malkit Singh for Gud Naal Ishq Mitha!
The promo which was released last week from T-Series highlights how huge a name Honey Singh still is in the game. Recent controversies about the lyrics of his songs have just added to the whole hype of his return to the Punjabi scene. Gud Naal Ishq Mitha has been on the lips of music fans across India with everyone waiting to see what Honey Singh has done with this all-time Punjabi classic.
Some music fans like ourselves were wary of this remake as we did not want to see the song get a Bollywood makeover. The thing that did appease us was the fact that Malkit Singh has been involved with the project. This does go to show how respectful Honey Singh is being. He did not have to bring Malkit Singh into the project. So many others have shunned original artists when doing covers, so for this, you have to say well done to Honey Singh.
The song itself is released tomorrow via T-Series and has a lot to live up to. Will it be as good as the 11minute original from Malkit? We doubt it, can it be as catchy and as clever? We certainly hope so.
The Bally Sagoo and Malkit Singh version is still many peoples go-to summer tune. This version was a classic and still bangs! Honey Singh the pressure is on! The time is now for you to make this song your own!
