After the huge success of her previous single ‘Kitabaan Vich’ featuring ‘Twinbeatz’, Dixi’s back to celebrate the summer with her latest offering ‘Nahi Jeena’.
The American beauty has this time teamed up with the uber-talented British music producer, DJ Lyan who most recently delivered the bangers Afterparty and Jugni 2.0.
The East-London music maker added his own unique flair to the mix and created magic. Dixi is pleased with the end result: “My vision originally for this song was actually meant to be a senti-ballad, but after talking to DJ Lyan and knowing what he can do with beats, I asked him to tune it up and make it a catchy one with dancehall vibes. I didn’t know if it’d even work with the ‘senti-bollywoodesque’ melodies I created for it, but he surprised me! I loved how it turned out.”
‘Nahi Jeena’ is Hindi pop fusion at its finest with a generous sprinkling of tropical elements! The track is bought to life by Dixi retelling her story of a fairytale, a Disney kind of love with an upbeat rhythm perfectly blended with Dixi’s distinctive vocals. Dressing like a princess for a pop video is like every girl’s dream come true!
Dixi says: “For the video, I envisioned a damsel in distress, but with Desi Disney Princess vibes! It was fun playing dress-up and re-enacting a Disney Princess kind of story with an Asian touch. Definitely another unique project for me in the books!”
‘Nahi Jeena’ takes us another step further to experiencing her versatility as a singer. From her classical training and raags to hip-hop and RnB, along with the ability to sing in 5 languages.
DJ Lyan sums it all up in a sentence: “Working with Dixi on this record was super dope. She has a great voice that really compliments the energy of the beat”.
‘Nahi Jeena‘ is OUT NOW (29th July 2021) via all good digital stores and streaming platforms globally.
