From a dance number Party on my mind to the soulful Mat aazma re, KK is dominating the chartbusters once again, and how! Excerpts from an interview
How did the Mat aazma re from Murder 3 come about?
n Pritam called me and said that there is a song that he thought was right up my alley and he wanted me to do the song. He wanted me to approach the songs the way I did when I 'd recorded a couple of songs with him long ago, especially a song called Labon ko labon se. He wanted the tone to have a a mid-heavy flow. I had done songs maintaining that tonal level earlier, so I enjoyed it. And, I loved the lyrics by Sayeed Quadri.
When you recorded Mat aazma re, what were your expectations?
n I obviously thought that people would like it because it has a good recall. The melody was nice. I really liked the way the second antra is written. It's a very mush song; girls will like it definitely. Honestly speaking, when I do a song, I don't mentally go back thinking whether the song is going to be a hit or not. I just leave it to the studio and keep my head free of all the clutter.
What are the responses that you have received for the song?
n I was performing at a show in New Delhi last week, where I got a lot of requests, before and after the show,for this song. I really didn't know then if it had picked up; I usually wait for a song to become a big hit before I start performing it on stage. But I (still) sang a couple of lines that day.
