Bappi Lahiri confirms singing two duets with Lady Gaga, says collab song with Akon to release soon

Music composer Bappi Lahiri recently completed 50 years in the business, and is showing no sign of slowing down. The veteran musician has spoken to Mirror from Los Angeles, and states he has just completed recording a couple of songs with Lady Gaga.

“Yes, two duets, with her singing in English and me in Hindi in my inimitable style. We are now waiting for the release to be greenlit, hopefully by the year-end. I also collaborated with Akon two months ago. That song should also be out soon," confirms Lahiri.

On being questioned further about his collaborations, the singer was tight-lipped, and said more details would follow in good time.

Lahiri's fame does not seem to stop there. Welsh DJ, producer, and two-time DJ Awards winner Jamie Jones and duo The Martinez Brothers have come together for their debut two-tracker album, titled Bappi. The songs feature remakes of Lahiri's chartbusters, such as 'Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy'.

British-Sri Lankan rapper MIA. also used the score in Kala, her 2007 album, and the song also featured in the climax sequence of the Adam Sandler movie You Don’t Mess With The Zohan. The song has an immense following in countries like China, Korea, Mongolia, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, and Tajikistan, and has found a place even in cover versions by Russians and Tibetan musicians. Baimurat Allaberiyev, an Uzbek local, got a role in a Russian film after a video of him singing 'Jimmy' garnered considerable traffic online. Check out posts by Bappi Lahiri
