Rap, EDM fresh approach to dance songs: Armaan Malik
New Delhi, July 4 (IANS) Singer Armaan Malik, who has created waves by recreating 1990’s melodies like “Tujhe Apna Banane Ki” and peppy numbers like “Buddhu Sa Mann”, says that rap and electronic dance music (EDM) is a new and fresh approach to dance numbers.
Asked if he thinks rap and EDM are taking over Bollywood melodies, Malik told IANS: “I don’t think so…I would call it a fresh approach to dance songs…”
Malik, who has crooned foot-tapping numbers like “Rom rom romantic” and “Chaar shanivaar”, says he likes songs by rappers like Yo Yo Honey Singh and Badshah as their songs are catchy and connect with the youth.
“I like Honey singh. I love the music that he does. I like Badshah’s songs as they are very cool, catchy and very young. I think that’s very important…It’s connecting with the youth, he added.
The 20-year-old singer shared that since he is a part of the youth he finds these genres a “good change”.
“But it’s more like a phase, that’s what I consider it,” he added.
