‘SHAHAR DIYE KOREEYEH’ ft. URBAN Stars METZ & TRIX, set to be the third single and this again demonstrates TAZ’s diversity in his vocal styles going from singing in English RnB style to Soulful Panjabi. The song has a very infectious chorus with a slightly rockier edge, and a definite groove that will take you by surprise. ‘MELANA DE NAAL AYEE MITRO’ ft. JSL is a Classic super hit song, originally sung by the band ‘HEERA’ and one of TAZ’s favorites.
The reason for re-doing this song in TAZ’s words “ I simply wanted to re-introduce this beautiful song back to Bhangra Lovers around the world, as its always been one of those songs that you do not have a choice but to DANCE your socks off to!!! “

The song that certainly changes the mood of the album and that stands out, is ‘JE TU BANJA MEREE’ full of melody, a touch of intimacy & Class, away from the hard hitting dance numbers. This song is a very easy listening love song about longing and self-discovery. Sang in Hindi, English & Panjabi, the song sinks into a very smooth reggae rhythm, collaged with a beautiful mesmerizing classical violin echoing in the wind. The composition is sure to relax your mind body and soul and by the time the album concludes you’ll feel you’ve taken this intimate journey with TAZ.
