After her hit singles like 'Exotic' and 'In My City', actress Priyanka Chopra has come out with another song, 'Young and Free', composed by record producer Will Sparks. She has thanked him for the collaboration.

"Thank you Will Sparks, Toby Gad, Rachel Rabin and Ty Dolla Sign. It's our time to be 'Young and Free'," Priyanka tweeted.

"I wrote this song at a very precarious time in my life," Chopra said according to an IANS report. She added: "These lyrics were born from a need for freedom, whatever that freedom may mean to each one of us. Being young and free is a state of mind that we all need to find in this crazy world to survive. What I love most about this track is the spontaneity from which it was born. While I was writing, Will was mixing the track into a roar of emotions and rebelliousness. It all came together in a true creative way. Will has taken the lyrics and given them life. This song reminded me of how much I love making music."

Talking about the collaboration, Sparks said: "I wanted 'Young and Free' to feel like a track ahead of its time. Collaborating with Priyanka has taken it to a whole new level. Her message and incredible voice combined with my production style has created something unique."

The actor shared an audio clip of the song on her social media profiles, and having heard that song, we are of the opinion that the song credits should read Will Sparks ft. Autotune.

'Young and Free' sounds like every EDM song ever, with not a hint originality, but that's just our opinion.

  “Music is love, love is music, music is life, and I love my life. Thank you and good night.” – A.J. McLean An experiment that’s now turned into a reality… how’s that for a surprise!!! I vividly remember sitting in Toby’s studio with Rachel & Ty, and we were just being our creative selves, playing with words, letting each other into our secrets, trying out some melodies…. just surrendering to this crazy thing called song writing!  It’s something I’ve always wanted to do, but never really mustered enough courage to…. But these sessions like the others that followed, were absolutely magical.  And now… lo and behold, Will took the words I wrote and gave it life! Everyday I’m thankful for all the opportunities that have come to me.  I feel truly blessed. Hope you like it.
