The World Music Awards, that usually is the first music awards to take place in the world, is back with another year of shockers; and this time the shock was meant for us.
Do you remember that song Priyanka Chopra composed recently with Will.i.am: In My City? Well, do not blame yourselves if you forgot about it, because some things are destined to haunt us at a later stage; this is just one of those things.
While the Indian audience received the single with the same enthusiasm as one would show on seeing a shirtless Brad Pitt in the newspapers, the international audience has received the song with an enthusiasm much greater, almost as if they were to see Brad Pitt shirtless right in front of their eyes. A popular newspaper stated that the fans abroad really liked the song and thus the song has been nominated at the World Music Awards.
“In My City” hasn’t been just considered for a special mention; instead, it has been nominated in three different categories: Best Debut, Best Song and Best Video. What does that mean? It means that this debutante in the music business will be competing with pop sensations like Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Madonna. So, if you were thinking for a split second that Kareena Kapoor was the one stealing the show; you might want to reconsider.
The collaboration with Will.i.am turned out to be a very good one for Priyanka, and for those who think they can do it on their own, please remember that singing isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but where there is a “will” there is a way. Really, Piggy Chops has been chopping her way to international stardom, not without keeping her Indian fans satisfied. As we all know, “Barfi!” did do well after the controversy and it also has been selected as India’s entry to the Oscars.
