Dr Zeus is without doubt the most successful UK Based Music producer of 2014. His last two tracks have achieved International success, including a collaboration with the Crown Prince of Bhangra, Jazzy B, and an item number “Lovely” from the Bollywood hit “Happy New Year” starring Shah Rukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan & Deepika Padukone.
His collaboration with the Crown Prince Of Bhangra “Mitran De Boot” wasn’t only the first time they had collaborated, but the first time Jazzy B had ever featured on a duet with a female artist. A very successful music career spanning back 24 years plus a feature by Kaur-B, made this an even more mouth-watering offering. The song didn’t cut any corners with Actress and Model, Surveen Chawla featuring in the video which has racked up 5.3 Million views on YouTube. The song not only achieved number one chart success in the BBC Asian Download Chart, but managed to sit in Pole Position for 3 weeks, only to be outdone by; yes you guessed it, another song produced by Dr Zeus.
“Lovely” sang by Kanika Kapoor, who was already coming off the back of “Baby Doll” success was showcased on stage by Zeus and his team, at the official film launch party shown on TV around the world. The item number from hit movie “Happy New Year” was mimed and danced to by one of Bollywood’s hottest and most popular actresses, Deepika Padukone. “Lovely” has achieved a massive 20 Million views on YouTube and it was no less than expected when it swapped places with “Mitran De Boot” to take the number one spot in the BBC Asian Download Chart and stay there for 2 weeks.
Reading these facts, its quite easy to agree that Dr Zeus owned the Charts during these five weeks and led his fans to ask the question, How is he going to top this?
Well, not only has he done exactly that, but once again has delivered a first in history by teaming up with the Queen of Bhangra, Miss Pooja.
Miss Pooja needs no introduction with an array of super hits in the Asian music industry, which has always been a subject of imagination of what could be possible if these two heavyweights were to ever collaborate.
In “Painkiller” that becomes a reality as the offering delivers a harmonious, tasteful, and catchy concoction. It propagates to supply an amazing hook line, balanced on signature beats and baselines from the man that is leaving many of his peers behind and resides in a league of his own.
The song talks from the perspective of Miss Pooja, telling the story about how one’s love for another can take away all pain that is felt. Fateh provides his own response from the male viewpoint. Painkiller encapsulates a clever lyrical use of multi-language, with both performing artists using Punjabi and English in their lyrics to deliver three and a half ‘head bopping’ minutes.
Punjabi lyrics are by the one and only Karamjit Puri who has penned numerous duets for Miss Pooja.
Painkiller is set to be an early Christmas present for fans of both Artists throughout the Globe. Could this be the 2014 Christmas Number One? Based on recent achievements, who would bet against it?
Painkiller releases worldwide on 14th December 2014. It will be out on Century Records (Outside Asia) and Speed Records (Asia). The track is available to Pre-Order from here.
