AR Rahman’s Urvashi Urvashi or Will.i.am’s Birthday: Which is better?

We all know Will.i.am’s latest offering is inspired from Rahman’s 1994 hit Tamil song. But is it as catchy and upbeat? You vote and tell us…

AR Rahman’s chartbuster Urvashi Urvashi is undoubtedly a classic number. Originally the song was composed in Tamil but it became such a big hit that later it was composed in Hindi too. And now the same tune has been recreated by American rapper Will.i.am but in hatke style for his new song Birthday. Well, we have often heard about Bollywood aping the West but in this case it’s vice versa and we are pretty glad. Even the Oscar winning composer was super thrilled about collaborating with the acclaimed rapper . He wrote on his Facebook paged, “Excited to creatively partner with Will.i.am to recreate an early popular track of mine in a new flavour.” With so much buzz around the rapper-singer’s new song Birthday, we decided to hear it and see if it’s equally good. Will.i.am’s Birthday starts off brilliantly and we totally love the Hollywood spin given to Rahman’s song. As for the tune, it’s almost the same. When you hear it, you’ll realize except for the lyrics there is hardly any difference between Urvashi Urvashi and Birthday.

While wethinks AR Rahman’s original tune is hand downs better, Bollywoodlifers you check out both the songs, vote and tell us which one do you like.
