The UK Bhangra music genre has been the favorite for years to all the music lovers. Brit singer Juggy D in collaboration with Indian Rapper IKKA and English music producer extraordinaire Rishi Rich just added to the list of favorites an exciting new single Get Down! So this Tune-In-Tuesdays we are focusing on this latest Punjabi/Hip-Hop track.
The combo of Juggy D and Rishi is infamous for songs like Dance With You and Hum Tum from the movie Hum Tum. Get Down is their collaboration in which Juggy’s fiery vocals are coupled with the raw rap of Rishi Rich and IKKA.

The trio collaborating on the single Get Down was just an experiment but the results are nothing less than amazing! The music video has been perfectly shot and enhances the grungy and raw sounds of Juggy D and rap by IKKA. It starts with a touch of folk and moves through Punjabi to Hip-Hop to Rap. Rishi Rich’s masked looks adds a ‘bad boy’ element to his usual ‘good guy’ style.
