SUPERSTAR ENRIQUE IGLESIAS RETURNS WITH HIS SMASHING NEW SINGLE “TURN THE NIGHT UP”
#1 ON THE BILLBOARD DANCE CHART, THE TRACK GETS AN INDIAN TWIST WITH ADDITIONAL VOCALS BY UPCOMING BOLLYWOOD VOICE MUSTAFA ZAHID AND PRODUCTION BY DJ AKS
Leading music label, Universal Music India today announced the release of the brand new single “Turn The Night Up” from pop superstar Enrique Iglesias. The Latino heartthrob once again conquered the Billboard Dance Chart with “Turn The Night Up” — his thirteenth No.1. Already holding the record on the chart for most #1’s, he increases that number yet again. “Turn The Night Up” is also the lead-off from his highly anticipated tenth full-length studio album, due out later this year.
Produced by The Cataracs [Selena Gomez, Snoop Dogg], the track delivers dance floor energy with undeniable pop panache. The superstar’s instantly recognizable voice carries a soaring and sexy hook, making for a sizzling and seductive club anthem. And now the track gets a unique `Bollywood’ spin as music producer / DJ AKS delivers a monster of an Indian remix by cleverly infusing Desi instruments like the “Dhol” and “Tumbi” along with vocals from Pakistani vocalist Mustafa Zahid, best known for his break through Bollywood hit “Tera Mera Rishta” (`Awarapan’) and more recently “Bhula Dena” from the musical block buster `Aashiqui 2’.
Enrique Iglesias has consistently been one of the best-selling International artistes in India and this Indian remix will extend his fan base to well beyond the International music audiences.
Says Enrique Iglesias on this remix, “It’s well known I love India and the great support I always get from my fans there. That’s why we always try to pay a bit more attention to them and one way is to customize the single with a special version for India”.
The remix titled DJ AKS Remix Ft. Mustafa Zahid can be heard here http://saa.vn/enrique on Saavn.com – the exclusive streaming partner for the track.
This infectious Indian remix is part of the six track release of the “Turn The Night Up” single which includes the original version along with five club remixes as an Indian exclusive!
Says DJ AKS the producer of the track, “Turn the night up” is a definite worldwide club banger. This Enrique Iglesias tune had the right vibe for fusion with the “Bollywood” sound. The theme being very simple… “Turn the night up”. So we got creative with Desi instruments like “Dhol” and “Tumbi” along with vocals by Mustafa Zahid which takes the song to a whole new level. Thanks to Universal Music India who gave us the opportunity and freedom to collaborate and remix this chart busting number!”
Says Mustafa Zahid on the remix, “I’m a huge fan of Enrique Iglesias and his music, so when my record label Universal Music called me and asked me to sing on this remix, I jumped on it! It’s a great up-tempo dance track and all credit to DJ AKS for turning it around into a big Bollywood dance remix! I’m sure it will be a huge hit across clubs out here and I’m waiting to hear what my fans think of it”.
