In his most recent interview, Yo Yo Honey Singh discusses despair, fame, a comeback, and many other topics.
He recalls not taking any time when things were going well for himself. He bemoans the fact that, despite being discussed, anxiety and despair are just briefly touched with. “The manic phase of bipolar disorder is one condition that is extremely harmful. Yo Yo Honey Singh, a rapper, performer, and songwriter, says: “That is something I would not want on anyone, even people I do not like.
Singh has experienced fame—more than just being “known.” In 2011, he launched his Punjabi album “International Villager.” The album’s lead single, “Gabru,” which features J-Star as the singer, topped the Asian music charts, including the official BBC Asian charts. According to reports, he received the biggest payment ever for a Bollywood song.
In addition, Yo Yo Honey Singh was at the top of YouTube’s list of the top 10 trending videos of 2012 and topped the trending video chart for that year. His song “Brown Rang” reached the number one position. The song “High Heels,” which Jaz Dhami and I co-wrote, came in fourth.
Several people found the words of many of his songs to be objectionable, calling them obscene and misogynistic; even the courts were contacted.
“I’ve always tried to pursue the things that make me happy and fulfilled. My audience has appreciated my effort in return. Others will always have an opinion about everything, but it is up to me to select which ones to take seriously and which to brush aside.”
But Yo Yo Honey Singh was moving quickly and enjoying great popularity. And then, in or around 2016, there was a crash. There were numerous news sites posting his fabricated interviews while rumours were in full force.
“My two cents to anyone struggling to get professional treatment is – do not suffer in silence and attempt to maintain a façade of positivity,” the musician, who had become a prisoner of his own mind, says as he withdraws into a shell. It is undoubtedly possible to recover from mental illness with the correct help.
Singh claims he is full of hope despite the fact that his recently released album, “Honey Singh 3.0,” is breaking new records. “The energy is there. The return is done in true Yo Yo Honey Singh fashion. I will always be grateful to my parents for being my rock during the darkest of times and for their unflinching support, says the singer whose songs were featured on the album.
Singh emphasises that being on stage is an electrifying experience and the energy he receives from the audience is indescribable. Singh will be live during Season 5 of Red FM Swag Fest, which will be held on March 11 at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in the capital. “There is something incredibly unique about playing in front of an audience who enjoys and loves your music. The encouragement of children inspires me to carry on doing what I do. My birthplace of Delhi will host the on-ground event, and I’m overjoyed to be performing there, says Singh, whose songs have been broadcast on Red FM since he first began recording them.
After nine years after his last album, “Desi Kalakar,” he is finally releasing one with “Honey 3.0.” The singer believes the album features a special blend of old and new elements, allowing the audience to enjoy the nostalgia of his previous avatar while enjoying the freshness of the newer version. He emphasises that he and his team have raised the bar on every aspect of this project, including sound, music, and vibe.
“This time, I’ve assumed the duty of writing and creating the songs on my own. Music producers Bass Yogi and Hommie Dilliwala are now in charge. By the end of October, after starting the process in September, we had approximately 30 songs to our credit. The best 10 of those have been chosen by us.
Yo Yo Honey Singh, who most recently worked on the song “Kudi Chamkeeli” with actor Akshay Kumar and is currently putting the finishing touches on the album’s video, continues, “Because to the Pandemic, we haven’t been able to shoot outside of India, but we will soon do so. The idea is to constantly shoot abroad while remaining unapologetically Indian, he says.
