Newcomer Akasa Singh Collaborates with Ricky Martin
The Mumbai-based singer contributes to a new version of the Latin pop superstarâ€™s 2016 hit single â€œVente Paâ€™ Caâ€
As Indian artists venture further into the world of international collaborations, Mumbai-based vocalist Akasa Singh is the latest to join the club. In an initiative by Sony Music U.S.A and Sony Music Indiaâ€™s A&R teams, Singh features on a new version of Latin pop icon Ricky Martinâ€™s hit track â€œVente Paâ€™ Ca.â€
â€œRicky Martin is a legend and working with him was a dream,â€ says Singh who has previously featured on online platform Being Indianâ€™s viral tracks â€œJudaaiâ€ and â€œJugni Ji.â€ â€œWhen I heard the song for the first time, I knew I wanted to be a part of it.â€ The track has a strong core of reggaeton and infuses Martinâ€™s signature dance pop vibe with Singhâ€™s powerful Hindi vocals. â€œThe hook stays with you long after you are done listening and thatâ€™s what I love about the song,â€ Singh adds.
â€œVente Paâ€™ Ca,â€ which translates to â€œCome Here,â€ was originally released on September 23rd 2016 in Spanish with Colombian singer-songwriter Maluma on guest vocals. The song has since gone on to become a global collaborative project; several different English versions exist, featuring artists from various countries. Some of the artists featured include Australian pop singer Delta Goodrem, K-pop South Korean singer Wendy and Taiwanese pop singer A-Lin.
