Hounslow-based Bhangra musician Rajeev B has released his single Ranjhana without warning - much to the delight of his fans!

The single dropped at midnight on Wednesday (May 27), and has already caused a stir within the Asian music community.

Rajeev B said: "My fans have responded really well to the song, I am truly overwhelmed by the reaction. I have had hundreds of messages via social media from fans appreciating the quality of the music. This was something that was very important for this release.

"Where I used to be popular solely amongst the Asian community I am seeing more and more other cultures appreciating my work. It is always great to see new people appreciate what I do. This has always been the intention."

Fans have greatly enjoyed the surprise release of the song, with one saying: "Amazing to see a British artist trying new things! What a great track!", and another claiming Rajeev B was the "best thing to come from London in a very long time".

The track sees Rajeev B join forces with Pappi Gill with a song that pays homage to 'Rang Kala' by Mukhtar Sahota & Pappi Gill.

Rajeev B said: "Prior to Ranjhana, I released my 15-track mix tape which was a free download. My fans reacted very positively and wanted more so I decided to release this track eight months early. Ranjhana was supposed to be released on Valentines Day 2016."

Since its release onto Youtube, the song has already amassed over 22,000 views, and saw double the usual amount of people visiting his social media pages. Rajeev B is looking to perform and create more music in the near future.

Rajeev B said: "I have a few more tracks lined up which are due to release in the coming months.

"I'm due to perform in Las Vegas, USA, Dubai, Canada & India this year also, so I have a pretty tight schedule. I do however always find time to perform at more intimate gigs in London."
