During this special visit they were jamming and sharing notes on music. Pritam also introduced Marshmello to the stalwarts of the Music Industry such as Baadshah, Neha Kakkar, Armaan Malik, Arijit Singh and the singer whose vocals are on BIBA-Dev Negi.
In true tradition of Indian hospitality, Pritam gifted Marshmello a personalised jacket with their song name and logo, that was curated by ace athleisure designer Narendra Kumar. Warmed by the gesture, Marshmello instantly put it on and posed for pictures.
While wearing the jacket, Marshmello was cheered on with a dhol. Taken by the sound of it, Marshmello tried his hands at the instrument and played it exceptionally well and to the beat of their track ‘BIBA’ quite effortlessly.
About the song, Pritam says, “Team JioSaavn contacted me somewhere around November saying Marshmello wants to collaborate with you, what do you think about it? I was super excited and on board instantly. I composed a few songs which I sent to Marshmello to work with, together. My first cuts were love songs, especially after hearing Marshmello’s compositions ‘Alone’ and ‘Happier’, and I was convinced he would like the work I sent him. Marshmello’s team loved BIBA the most and felt that the song meshed perfectly with the energy, vibe and culture of India, impressed by its Indianised beats. Marshmello then added his signature touch to it and the result is golden!”
Check out the groove!
We also hear that everyone in the studio danced to the song and the two artists gave a sneak peak of the ‘BIBA step’, to be seen in the video of the track with a Bollywood surprise, which will be directed by filmmaker Punit Malhotra. The video is due for release very soon. Marshmello will also be performing BIBA at the Supersonic weekend with a special appearance by Pritam.
