Opinion on Himesh Reshammiya, the Actor, may be divided. But there’re no two ways about Himesh the Musician, going great guns…and ganas. Ever since Himesh reversed his earlier stubborn and stupid decision to sing and compose only in films that feature him as an actor, a floodgate of opportunities have opened up for the rhythmic Reshammiya.
His biggest musical challenge is the international album @ Da Edge for which he has already recorded a remix track with Romanian musician Edward Maya.
Himesh just got even more ambitious. His international album will now feature a duet, an original composition, with American rapper Lil Wayne.
Wayne who is widely regarded as the most successful rapper in the world has sold approximately 10 million albums across the world. In 2012’s edition of the Guinness Book Of World Records, Lil Wayne is mentioned for as record-holder for the ‘Most US Hot-100 Hits By A Rap Artiste With 64 Hits Between 1999 and 2010.”
Himesh invited Lil Wayne to contribute to @ Da Edge. The two are now working on a song entitled ‘Come To Me Now‘. It will be released not only as part of Himesh’s album but also as a single in the US for fans of Lil Wayne. Through them (Wayne’s fans) Himesh hopes to establish a musical market in the US.
When contacted, Himesh admitted he was indeed doing a song with Lil Wayne. “But at the moment, I am completely involved with the release of my film Damadamm. But yes Lil Wayne and I are collaborating.”
The Wayne-Reshammiya single ‘Come To Me Now‘ will release next year.
