Commenting on the collaboration, Mentor says:
“Bikram has a unique voice and has delivered another flawless record with ‘Pabh Chak’. It was great to work with him and add my own dance flavor to the track. ‘Pabh Chak’ is a fast paced Punjabi track and I think Bhangra fans will really enjoy it leading in to the holiday season.”
Following his hit album ‘Bik I Am,’ which was well received by bhangra fans around the world, Bikram Singh goes from strength to strength in the Punjabi music market. His latest collaboration with Mentor in a fine example of his unique vocal talent which has been warmly received by the music scene, and has seen him become a hugely popular Punjabi artist in the last few years since his breakthrough album in 2005 ‘American Jugni’.
Pabh Chak’ is a fun and catchy bhangra song, which is sure to set the dance floors on fire this festive season! The song was written by Savvy Dhillon from Chandigarh.
