Known for popular songs like ‘Kangna’, ‘Rough’ and ‘Jugni Ji’, noted singer and composer, Dr. Zeus has just released a new single. Titled ‘Woofer’, the song has garnered an unprecedented response from the listeners and its views are increasing by leaps and bounds on YouTube. In an exclusive email interview with BollywoodMDB, the popular singer and composer opens up about the new song, his musical journey over the years and his long association with singer Zora Randhawa and much more.
Dr. Zeus Q. Tell us something about your new song with Zora Randhawa?
A. This song ‘Woofer’ is the first single of my new album ‘Global Injection’ and we needed it to be a bang some and Zora decided that along with Zora we must have someone who should be a mainstream artist. I wanted to make it special as it is not about just the artists, but it is all about making our Indian culture and our languages be it Punjabi or Hindi global, so as to make it a part of the mainstream entertainment industry. I recorded the song in Zora Randhawa’s voice who I share a great rapport with. I made the beat that needed a rap and then Zora and I decided that we needed an international rapper and that’s how Snoop Dogg came in the picture. We also wanted a Bollywood star who could sing the English lyrics, so we rounded it on to Nargis Fakhri as she has an American accent and she did deliver the song pretty well.
Q. You started your career way back in 1999. How do you see your musical journey over the years?
A. I would say that slowly I am moving towards the goal that I always wanted to achieve since I started to compose music, and
