Overwhelmed by their success in India where ‘Jai Ho’ has sat at the top of the charts for three months this year, the Pussycat Dolls are keen to pick up on more desi beats. To do this, they’ve turned to the British raised rapper from Southall and playback singer Hard Kaur. “I have already sent Pussycat Dolls the chorus I have written which develops on from Move over, Hard Kaur is here,” says the rapper who is about to start a world tour, which will end with her recording in LA.
Hard Kaur, who is looking forward to her new album, which includes a collaboration with American rappers D-12, is the latest to join the world of celeblogging. “I wanted to reach out to my fans and the Internet is the best medium for that,” she explains, “The youths of today are so attached to the internet through various networking sites and blog space. So, obviously this is the best way I can connect to my fans and the youngsters at a very personal level and bond with them.”
As part of her world tour, Hard Kaur will be appearing at Explosion 2009 in LA on August 2nd and Oakland on Aug 9th with Sonu Niigaan and Sunidhi Chauhan. The Glassy girl is proud of the effect she is having on Bollywood music and culture. “I know I’m making a difference,” she says.
