Marshmello joins with Pritam and Shirley Setia for Bollywood-inspired EDM in ‘Biba’
The end of January saw some huge developments in the Marshmello verse. First, fans found out that the masked fluff artist had completed his first hip-hop album. Curiosity is brewing fervently as to what’s in store. Early afternoon on Saturday, February 2, brought about his virtual concert within the Fortnite game, in which thousands of computer personas were treated to ten minutes of music and peace as Marshmello’s Fortnite persona performed his biggest hits.
There’s no stopping for the crossover star, however. In addition to making a deeper foray into the hip-world, it appears that Bollywood has also sparked his interest. Marshmello’s newest single, “Biba.” The star of the show is vocalist Pritam, who’s well-established in his home country of India. He sings the entire song in Hindi alongside fellow vocalist Shirley Setia, while Marshmello produces a fusion of EDM and Bollywood sounds as a fitting background soundtrack. Despite the language barrier for Anglophones, “Biba” is plenty catchy and able to appeal to the masses.
