Behind The Beat: Nikhita Gandhi & Denny on their lockdown earworm 'Jhalle Kalle'
Nikhita Gandhi and Denny talk about their latest single 'Jhalle Kalle' and take us on a musical journey. This episode of Behind The Beat is a whole mood. Watch below.
From singing some of the biggest Bollywood tracks like 'Raabta', 'Qafirana', and 'Aao Kabhi Haveli Pe' to dishing out bhajans and RnB tracks at one go - if there is one thing that has grown as much as Nikhita Gandhi's stature, it is her versatality. The latest display of that came out in her collaboration with international songwriter-composer Denny in the form of 'Jhalle Kalle'. Created for Artist Originals (AO), the dreamy duet ammassed more than 2 million hits on YouTube within a week and has been topping all kinds of charts, everywhere since.
Songwriter-composer Denny Thakrar has previously written English singer Dido's lead chart-topping single Still On My Mind. The song topped the Billboard dance charts and was on number 13 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary Charts. It was also featured in Netflix‘s popular Marvel series Locke and Key.
"The idea behind the song (Jhalle Kalle) was to create a fusion of Urban/RnB elements with a traditional Indian melody for todays audience. The song is about what couples today go through - drive each other crazy, tension and ups and downs but they always come back together. Its a very real record that we feel people will relate it to," say Denny and Nikhita.
