We all love music and it’s been a while since we had a British Asian artiste on the show so as a special treat we invited singing sensation Raghav on today’s show.

Raghav is an independent Canadian singer/songwriter. He has released three studio albums – his debut Storyteller in 2004, Identity in 2009 and The Phoenix in 2012. His most known commercial success was the hit song Angel Eyes which peaked at number 7 in the UK in 2005. His singles “So Confused”, “Can’t Get Enough” and “It Can’t Be Right” also reached the UK top ten in 2004. Raghav continues to have success on the Canadian charts with subsequent hits like “So Much” with Kardinal Offishall, “Fire”, “Top of the World” and “Woohoo”. He also made an impact in Bollywood and sang the track Ishq Shava picturised on the one and only Shahrukh Khan for the Yash Raj blockbuster Jab Tak Hai Jaan.

I learnt an interesting fact about him that Yashraj Films had initially approached him to sing the song Heer, which was eventually a huge blockbuster for Harshdeep Kaur on the album, but he sang Ishq Shava instead. He, however, did sing a few lines for us which was beautiful.

Raghav has just released a new song “Until the sun comes up” featuring Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan and RnB singing sensation Nelly.

Having interviewed Raghav before I know he is incredibly cheeky and very witty, he knows the industry in and out and speaking to him was like catching up with an old friend and the jokes did not stop. He even learnt the meaning of “swagat” whilst on the show!

Raghav then went on to talk about his new track, which was going to be released soon and he spoke about the difficulty of getting Nelly and Abshishek Bachchan together. The track was recoded with Raghav and Abhishek in a studio in India and Nelly was in the US recording his part, which was then compiled to make this feel good number. We even got to play a bit of the track on the show and it was lovely to hear that his track was all about giving to those less fortunate than us. He spoke about the importance of us all having a level of social responsibility and we must ensure that regardless of how big one makes it in their career they should never forget those who are less fortunate than them.
