Global Party Starters Re-Imagines ‘Shape of You,’ Bollywood Style
Ed Sheeran’s Shape of You, which debuted at number one on the UK singles chart in January, has subsequently been topping charts all over the world. Given the track’s popularity, it was only a matter of time before it got the #GPSMusic treatment.
The Global Party Starters remix of Ed Sheeran’s instant hit Shape of You features female vocals by Anjali in the first verse that give the track an upbeat feel, and perfectly complement Sukhi Walia’s original Hindi lyrics in the second verse. Keen listeners will recognize lyrics from Lauryn Hill’s Ex-Factor sampled in the outro, reinforcing the fusion feel of the track with a little R&B/hip hop. The remix seamlessly blends western beats with South Asian cultural influences in signature GPS Music style.
Global Party Starters’ upcoming album Keep Us On Your Radar, will be releasing worldwide on March 20th, 2017, so stay tuned! GPS is comprised of three members from Canada’s east and west coasts: from Toronto, MC SatsB, founder of desiFEST – Canada’s largest South Asian concert; Juno nominee and Western Canadian Music Award winner, DJ A-SLAM from Vancouver; and DJ REKing, a fresh face on the Vancouver music scene.
