The actress-turned-singer is currently in talks to collaborate with the world’s No 1 DJ David Guetta, apart from recording a track with dance music producers Swedish House Mafia. These artistes have never worked with an Indian musician before, making PC the first to boast of such a collaboration.
The actress’s management brought her together with Swedish House Mafia while she was in Los Angeles working her album some months ago, and they’ve recorded a track together. A source reveals, “Priyanka has provided the vocals on the track. Now that a major chunk of the album is over, she has to sit down with her producers and decide which ones will make it to the final cut. It’s an interesting coming together of two genres. SHM were quite open to listening to PC’s ideas and letting her be involved in the production process.”
Meanwhile, the actress also met with David Guetta at the Grammy Awards in LA earlier this week, where the two artistes hung out post the ceremony and are now keen to find a way to work with each other. Confirms Zak Biddu of UKNY Music, who is bringing the superstar DJ to India next month, “Yes, David and Priyanka met at the Grammys and they seriously want to work together on something special.” Adds the source, “David’s team has shown genuine interest in working with her post their meeting. In fact, Priyanka has been meeting several people in the music business there and her company is ensuring that the right people listen to her finished songs.”
Guetta will be in India to perform at the Invasion festival in Delhi, Pune and Bangalore in early March. It’s possible the two artistes will meet and take this discussion further then. Keep watching this space for more news on that!
