Frankly speaking, I am not a fan of Justin Bieber at all but his track Sorry where the popstar pleads his girlfriend to take him back worked well with me. Not because of his voice but the video of the track which features the all-female crew of ReQuest Dance Crew and The Royal Family Dance Crews (from New Zealand) breaking out into a hip hop dance.
Too inspired by the song I think, Punjabi rap star Badshah released a Hindi cover of the song, complete with lyrics like “Message padhe hain tune lekin koi jawaab nai, Insta pe photo jo daali hai lagti ho khush badi“
It also includes the chorus from the beloved Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan song ‘Sanu Ek Pal Chain Na Aave’. I wonder if the revered singer, who tragically passed away in 1997, would have approved of the use of his famous song.
Was he drunk or high on some shitty drugs, the time he thought of recreating the song…I have just one question…whyyyyy in hellllll was this song even made ?
Badshaah’s cover has left us speechless, but maybe the song will make sense when it is played on a high volume in a dark nightclub where everyone is drunk out of their senses.
All I have to say is we hope Badshah will seek forgiveness from Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan by singing “Is it too late now to say sorry” onto the heavens. Listen to the song at your own peril here:
May god bless you the power to sleep tonight !
