He’s a cool guy and I still remember how respectfully he met me when I met him in May 2009″.
Jeremy Skaller who produced the song also spoke to Desi Hits! about the collaboration between the two singers saying: “Sonu Nigam and Jay Sean represent the very best at what they do. Two world class vocalists, equally as good at what they each do. Its not every day that such iconic figures get to work together and I’m proud to be a part of it.”
Teaming up with Sonu Cash Money singer Jay, talked about the collaboration: “I’ve been a huge fan of Sonu Nigam since a long time. I love Bollywood music and listen to it regularly. I’ve always liked Sonu’s voice. So when I met him recently, we decided to work together.”
Jay revealed the meaning of the song: “It is about a guy who meets a girl in a nightclub and then goes on to prove to her that she is ‘the one’ for him,”
He also added: “We haven’t recorded a video for The One…, as yet. But we may shoot it with a Bollywood actor because of their beautiful faces. I will be in India soon to work on it”.
Working with Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam may prove that Jay could be working on more possible collaborations with other Bollywood singers in the future: “I like singers like Adnan Sami and Udit Narayan for their voice. In the future, I plan to work in India more often. So you never know, I may be working with more Indian singers soon.”
The song is to be titled, The One and will be released globally next month.
