What do you get when you combine the talents of a DJ of UpsideDown’s caliber with a rapper with skills like Happy Singh? This Tune-in-Tuesdays we have, what is sure to be one of the most popular rap songs of the year – ‘Nakhra.’
This is the first collaboration between UpsideDown and Happy Singh. Like all of UpsideDown’s releases, ‘Nakhra’ is a very strong track whose sick beat will make you want to get up and show your own nakhra. Happy Singh’s tight vocals and rap complement and elevate the music giving it a global appeal. The track has been released on the Urban Asian Music label.

Happy Singh may not have had the happiest background – he has battled drug addiction in the past – but he has shown that with determination one can rise above anything. Happy’s sound is very mainstream and his rap ability is one that can rival top names in the industry. He entered the industry as a producer and songwriter but soon decided to focus on his own career as a rapper/singer. ‘Nakhra’ is the perfect song to showcase his talent and ability to the world.
