Two British born South Asian’s, Junaid Malik and Heeral Chhatralia, join forces for a melodic Punjabi pop love anthem, ‘Phul Javan Duniya.’ The peppy ballad is a sweet blend of Punjabi and English lyrics and the catchy beat has us swaying. So we had to choose this track as our Tune-in-Tuesdays of the week!
‘Phul Javan Duniya’ has a relaxed pop reggaeton beat over a Latin guitar riff. The single paints imagery through soulful lyrics in English, Hindi, and Punjabi of a love-filled summer romance. The fun-filled track marks the return of singer Junaid Malik to the music scene after a long hiatus. ‘Phul Javan Duniya’ is Malik’s second single after a 7-year journey searching the world for spirituality and music. Free from the chains and demands of a record label, Malik is able to blend his distinctive voice and take his art to a place where musical and lyrical integrity meets commercial mainstream.
The lovely Heeral Chhatralia made her musical debut with this song. Chhatralia is a British international recording and performing artist, and singer-songwriter, of Indian origin. Having showcased her talent through social media early this year, this songstress has since received praise and recognition from established musicians including Pritam, Shekhar Ravjiani, Ankit Tiwari, Rishi Rich, and Tanishq Bagchi, to name a few. Most recently, she had collaborated with the Indian music industry’s renowned guitarist Shomu Seal, whose credits include many of Bollywood’s film tracks including the recent chartbuster ‘Pachtaoge.’
Chhatralia’s debut and Malik’s return from hiatus is one urban desi track you can’t miss. ‘Phul Javan Duniya’ is an aesthetically pleasing fusion of current trending pop genre of music, and timeless Punjabi and Hindi classic tunes. The singers believe this single embodies the elements of freedom, love, and happiness, the perfect formula for romance.
