We’re so busy dancing to this new version of ‘Jalebi Baby’ that we’re not even sure how we’re supposed to tell you about it without getting distracted. The TikTok mega-hit track from Tesher, a Canada-based rapper, and producer went viral on the biggest scale possible and we didn’t think it could get more hype than it already is. But we were 100% wrong. Tesher brought Jason Derulo in to lend his vocals and signature style to ‘Jalebi Baby’ and this track is pure fire.
‘Jalebi Baby’ went viral globally and for good reason. The English and Punjabi fusion is thrown over Latin-inspired beats resulting in an effortlessly fun and catchy track. It was the audio that backed many, many TikTok videos, especially amongst the South Asian community. Who doesn’t love viral representation like that?
We absolutely love the effortless switch between English and Punjabi lyrics and all the references to Indian culture. It’s a sweet, viral treat for those who are familiar with or part of the culture. The addition of Jason Derulo was such a fun, unexpected collaboration, and his vocals and energy match Tesher’s vibe perfectly. It’s a match made in musical heaven if you ask us.
“I know, I know / The things that you like”
Tesher and Jason Derulo do in fact know the things that we like. We can say with 100% confidence that this version of ‘Jalebi Baby’ will be as big of a hit, if not bigger, than the original version. We’re already imagining all the TikTok videos that are going to come out of this trend. Not to mention, we’re going to be playing this on repeat all summer long. It’s upbeat, catchy, and has the perfect beat to dance to. It’s also great to see Indian artists breaking into the Hollywood music scene and we hope to see more collaborations like this in the future!
Oh and in case you were wondering, jalebi is a sweet, sugary, deep-fried snack that’s popular all over South Asia. Do with that information what you will. Get to streaming it here, now!
