Actress, singer, songwriter Preeya Kalidas has been dabbling in the arts for quite some time. Shifting focus to music, Preeya has now released the new single “Love Between Us.”
Preeya sets up this release by telling us all that this will be just one of three releases this year! From what we hear in “Love Between Us,” this songstress has some tricks up her sleeve. Discussing her new single, Preeya says, “Ram Lakhan was a classic Bollywood film I enjoyed watching when I was growing up. I’ve always wanted to work with music from this iconic film and was given the chance to on this song. I think the way that Davinche has produced it adds a real edge to the song and the early response on ‘Love Between Us’ has been brilliant.” Preeya is creating her own modern twist of Bollywood, Western fusion and I am a fan of what she is coming up with.
“Love Between Us” has been co-written by Preeya and Davinche, who has also produced the track. Davinche’s impressive resume includes works done for (previous work includes Tinie Tempah, Wretch 32, Cleo Sol).
In 2010, Preeya quit her fulltime television gig to pursue music. Preeya walked away with a record deal with Mercury Records released “Shimmy” featuring Mumzy Stranger.
The single was heavily promoted and Preeya found herself singing her song on so many platforms, yet the track didn’t resonate with fans and Preeya was in turn dropped from her label. This didn’t slow her down as she continued to record and collaborate with artists. Preeya looked hot and sounded great on Skepta’s track “Cross My Heart.” Between careers and finding her footing, Preeya headed back to Eastenders late last year, but continued the music career and now is strategically releasing songs.
“Love Between Us” will be followed up with a music video this month.
