Music composer, Amaal Mallik has collaborated with British pop star, Dua Lipa to produce a desi remix of her latest song Levitating (2020).
Reported on Mid-Day, Prakriti and Sukriti Kakar will be lending their vocals to the record and the latter can’t wait, “Dua Lipa was the reason I wrote my first single in 2019. I’ve been following her work so closely since the very beginning. We’ve been so inspired by her work for as long as I can remember. ‘Levitating’ has been literally everywhere, and everyone knows it word for word. We’ve made an Indian version of the song, and I can’t wait to share it with the world!”
As for Mallik, he is overjoyed to have been able to work with the Grammy Award winner, “It is a tremendous feeling to be collaborating with such a talented pop star and global icon! Dua Lipa’s music is something we all love, hence it’s quite an honour for me to be doing the official India remix, giving an Indian touch to one of her biggest tracks.”
“We feel elated to be coming together to remix ‘Levitating’, one of the standout songs on the ‘Future Nostalgia’ album! Congratulations are in order for Dua on her Grammy win, and I think it’s the best time to be dropping this track of ours. I look forward to the reception,” Mallik further added.
Talking about the same, Lipa shares her excitement of her song being remixed for the Indian audience, “I am so thrilled with the response from my Indian fans to ‘Future Nostalgia’ (the album that features ‘Levitating’). I had an amazing time in India in 2019, and so I always wanted to do something special for them. Indian music icon Amaal Mallik has remixed the track, adding his touch with beautiful Indian instruments. This is my gift to my Indian fans, and I hope you all will love the remix as much as I do.”
