With I Am Urban Desi, Mickey Singh has left the audience completely speechless with his beautiful rendition of popular songs like Blue Eyes, Kangna, Ghar Aaja Soniya, Amplifier, and so many more. However, that is not all he also brings some really talented South Asian singers, dancers, choreographers, DJs, etc. which makes this song even more fun to listen and watch. You can see Mickey interacting with all the featuring artists beautifully and performing with them, which adds a magical touch to this song.
Mickey Singh started his music career by releasing a mixtape of Punjabi and English music in 2013, Mick’s Tape and has since then given many popular singles like Galliyan Remix, Ho Gaya Pyaar, Hold Me, Cheerleader Remix, and Phone.

Simmi Singh, who is a Youtube star and started her channel in 2011 as a platform to showcase her acting skills to entertain the audient.
A famous dancer and choreographer, Kumari Suraj has performed in 30 countries and was also the first choreographer on Fox’s show So You Think You Can Dance, and introduced Waacking as a dancing style. Malinder Tooray aka MTooray is USA’s first female dhol player and is popular for combining traditional tribal drum beats into Hip-Hop, Electro, and Afro-house music. The musical ode to the respect queer love deserves is spot on here!
Love is love no matter what form it comes in. To show same sex queer relationships in an Indian music video is unheard of and groung breaking. This proves the negative mentality toward gay in desi and other black or brown cultures is changing. This shows more and more that Queer is the new normal.💋 • Thank you @chayakumar for directing this video. Thank you for having @m2ray5 and I represent #queer and interracial #love in your new music video. I love this remix! This has been one of my favorite tunes since Ma youth! I’m super proud to be Desi and West Indian and Queer 🇮🇳🇹🇹 🏳️🌈• • #samelove #interacialcouple #mixedgirl #desigirls #breakingbarriers #lesbians #instagay #everyonefallsinlovesometimes #iamurbandesi #urbandesi #bollywhack #plussizefashion #vintagechanel #plussizemodel #dhol #femaledholplayer #mtooray #kumarisuraj #mickeysingh #mickeyandfriends #waackingwednesday #equality #lovewins #gayok #lgbtq
