#ThisWeekInBhangra – Highflyers cannot fly higher than Garry Sandhu

#ThisWeekInBhangra saw 2 new singles go straight into the top 5 of the BBC Asian Network downloads chart (compiled by The Official Charts company). Highflyers worked hard promoting their new single Aaja Hun, which resulted in them going straight in at number 3. The surprise release from last week, from Garry Sandhu, eclipsed Highflyers, with Jigraa which entered the chart straight in at number 1. With Garry’s global fan base, it is no surprise a release from him does so well, so quickly.

Completing the top 5 is Nafees and Mumzy Stranger with Sazaa, which is a non-mover at number 2, after 5 weeks in the chart. Arijit Singh‘s Tum Hi Ho is down one place at number 4, after an impressive 24 weeks in the chart. Debutant Sukhi Sivia, who teamed with Dr Zeus and Shortie, and a brand new label to the UK, Merci Records end the week at number 5, with Sarkara.

Jeet Chahil and Shin from legendary band DCS were the only other new entry into the charts with their new single Mere Vaali.

A noticeable re-entry into the charts was GV‘s single – Akhiyan Da Nasha, featuring Roach Killa, from the album Old Habits Die Hard. Re-entering at number 9, was definitely a result of the release of the official video.

Based on Saturdays iTunes UK World chart, Young Hemi‘s Boliyan is not in the top 10, but the other 3 releases are, with Raju Dinehwala‘s Kabbadi currently charting at number 3.

My personal favourite from the 4 releases is Sarika Gill‘s Bach Ke. I think she has a lot of potential, and look forward to hearing more from her soon.

Another artist I’ve been looking forward to hearing from is Pav Dharia. Saturday saw the release of his latest album Red on Speed Records, which comes less than a month after the release of his previous album My Turn.

In other news. Sarbjit Cheema announced an upcoming single along side Dr Zeus.

Dr Zeus seems to be the in demand producer at the moment, with many singers working with him over the past few months. I know I have mentioned it in the past, but he still has an impressive 4 singles in the BBC Asian Network Download Chart Top 40.

Yo Yo Honey Singh has been nominated for Best India Act for the 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards (MTV EMA), along side Amit Trivedi, AR Rahman, Mithoon, and Pritam.

YouTube announced they will be holding their very own Music Awards.

We will be monitoring this closely to see if any Asian artists receive a nomination. I certainly think Honey Singh could be a contender, based on YouTube video hits at least.

That’s all for this edition of #ThisWeekinBhangra. Let’s see what next week brings.
