Even though the Bollywood paparazzi delves deeper than a tapeworm in a large intestine of an unhealthy man, not one publication is oddly enough talking about their girl Priyanka Chopra featuring in the opening track of Usher’s recently released LP, Hands II Love.
Maybe they’re too preoccupied with harassing Badshaah and bombarding him with banal questions like “your lyrics are so dumb but we still play your songs in every wedding, party, social function and funeral. Why is that?!”
I don’t know, maybe it’s because you’re stupid.
Contrary to what one might think, Chopra is not belting it in the track (we know she can though!) but rather providing us her perspective on what she looks for in a man.
The track in question, Need U, is a sultry, doo-wop ballad with an atmospheric production by legendary pop producer, Paul Epworth (Adele, FKA Twigs)
If only Chopra was given great material like this years ago to work with when she had a recording contract instead of the throwaway trash-pop she was given, maybe then she wouldn’t need a godawful TV show to fall back on.
Que sera sera.
