Shaan finds no ‘musicality’ in rap songs, takes a dig at Honey Singh’s songs

Singer Shaan said that the standard of music in the country has been lowered and seemed to take a dig at rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh. While Shaan did not directly name Honey, he cited the songs Chaar Botal Vodka, Sunny Sunny and Lungi Dance, saying that they had no ‘musicality’.

In an interview with AskMen India, Shaan said, “Music ki samajh kitne logon ke paas hai? Bohot kum. Hum sabko musically educate toh nahi kar sakte lekin hum itna kar sakte hai ki aap apni taraf se good music dete rahe ki dheere dheere ek taste banega. Lekin sabse aasaan tareeka yeh hai ki main aapke sthar pe utar jaaun (Very few people actually understand music. We cannot musically educate everyone but what we can do is churn out good music so that people develop a taste for it. But the easiest way is to stoop down to their level).”

Record companies prefer these tracks because while “they might not be great music,” they eventually become popular and get a lot of views, Shaan added.

“Aaj popular itna rap music kyun hai?” Hume lagta hai gaali form ho raha hai, isliye? Nahi, usme koi musicality hai hi nahi. Agar koi gaana bana raha hai, ‘Chaar botal vodka, kaam mera roz ka’, aap bhi gaa sakte ho. ‘Aaj blue hai paani paani paani’, ‘Lungi dance lungi dance’, aap bhi kar sakte ho (Why is rap music so popular today? Is it because they use swear words? No, because ‘there is no musicality in rap songs. sing songs like Chaar Botal Vodka, Sunny Sunny and Lungi Dance),’ he added.
