Marshmello has worked with international artists before, like Egypt’s Amr Diab. Now he goes to the subcontinent of India for “Biba” with Pritam.

To say that this is an unexpected collaboration would be an understatement. The song is entirely in Hindi, which is bound to make it a little less accessible to Marshmello’s primarily American audience. That being said, India is one of the most populated areas in the entire world, and appealing to that audience is a no-brainer.

Lyrics aside, the track is actually a whole lot of fun, and manages to blend Indian sounds with a dancey rhythm. It’s easy to see how this could win over an Indian crowd with the upbeat tempo and super bouncy synths, everyone jumping in unison. Honestly, it feels like the kind of crowd I miss these days.

Check out “Biba” below and check further down for lyrics if you want to try and sing along.



Lyrics

[Verse 1: Pritam]
Yeh roohdaariyan
Tujhi se, judi hai meri
Yeh daavedaariyan
Mujhi pe, likhi hai teri

[Pre-Chorus: Pritam]
Rihanna ke toh jaisa tu figure rakhdi
Te phoolan ke jaisa tu jigar rakhdi
Bhula ke jag saara hai nigaahein tak di
Te biba nachdi

[Chorus: Pritam]
Te biba nachdi
Roke na ruk di
Te biba nachdi

[Verse 2: Pritam]
Woah, main raatan saariyaan
Guzaaru asar main teri
Main chhadd duniyaa
Ve rehna nazar main teri

[Pre-Chorus: Pritam]
Main munda siddha saadha
Te hegi kudi tu jatt di
Tu aanve te chori chori kolo takk di
Nishaane maare tu bullet ankh di
Te biba nachdi

[Chorus: Pritam]
Hey biba nachdi
Roke na ruk di
Je biba nachdi

[Verse 3: Shirley Setia]
Ishq se reubaroo hu
Teri main hubahoo hu
Kuch bi lage naa mushkil, maahiya

[Pre-Chorus: Shirley Setia & Both]
Yeh raatein mulakaato ke hi naam kardi
Taarifon ko jahaan ki hu salaam kardi
Naa hatt ti hai nazar mujhe jo takk di
Te biba nachdi

[Chorus: Both & Pritam]
Je biba nachdi
Roke na ruk di
Je biba nachdi
Je biba nachdi
