Music Review: Top Ten Bollywood Songs Of The Week


Bollywood is off to an excellent start in 2017! This year brings a few remixes of old classics that are becoming quite popular with this generation's listeners and dancers. A.R. Rahman's "The Humma Song" is remixed from the original 1998 "Humma Humma" from the movie Bombay. "Laila Main Laila" from Raees starring Shahrukh Khan is a modern day take on the original from the movie Qurbani in 1980. Ok Jaanu holds several spots on this week's charts, and likely will keep #1 for several more weeks to come! Close behind is my favorite of the week, the garba song "Udi Udi Jaye." This track will surely be a popular one for wedding performances!
