Priyanka Chopra’s single In my city song review: Great vibe!

PeeCee’s much-hyped track is finally out. It’s got great energy and will.i.am’s rapping definitely adds muscle

My first reaction on listening to Priyanka Chopra’s single In my city was, ‘Is this really Priyanka Chopra’s voice?’. It seems that the actor-turned-singer has been working hard for the last couple of years to achieve that level of vocal finesse. She had been doing riyaaz even on the sets of her film Barfi!, training with a voice coach and a team of experts to get good voice quality, we are told. And it all seems to have worked wonders for her. The huskiness and the cool vibe in her voice make In my city exciting. Black Eyed Peas singer will.i.am’s rap portions are, as always, super cool!

My next reaction was – why that accent? Obviously Universal Music is mainly targeting the Americam market and I guess Piggy Chops had no other choice but to fake it…or did she? The track plays up to the huge mainstream American dance music market. And it succeeds in making you want to kick off your shoes and dance. But for those looking at some Indian influences in Priyanka’s music, there are none, not yet anyway. Let’s hope there is more desi tadka – in terms of either instruments or lyrics – in her forthcoming singles, because that’s her true identity, isn’t it?

Must say, PeeCee looks super sexy in the video (the original and the special version shot for the National Football League) and she’s got the right attitude. In my city is a good dance track and should become hot on the dance floor in the coming days.

Watch the video of the making of In my city and tell us – do you think that Priyanka has it in her to be the next big singing star?

    Its a rubbish song. Overhyped because of Priyanka Chopra, that’s all.

    • ashutosh

      priyanka looks hottest diva in the world

  • Inge, from Germany

    no, the voice is to thinly and to much sound technology

  • Caroline

    Yes she has it. Bravo PC you did make india proud you go girl!

  • ness

    I am very proud of Priyanka. People need to stop hating on her because no matter what happened she’s making India proud.

  • Inge

    She making India proud?, with what, PC / Akshay (married ), PC Shahid, Shah Rukh (married), to tell a pack of lies? Ha,ha,ha!

    • Mity

      Rather than going personal… be respectful of the hard work they put in, which is just out of your scope to even IMAGINE!

  • idk

    It’s terrible. So auto tuned and awful! Idk why people would think this crap is making india proud, no offense.

  • siya

    Its a wonderful song…n PCz voice is amazing….loved it..

  • Ritu

    No a flash in the pan

  • Smile

  • Avni

  • NVB

    Awsm …..unblvbl.. her voice is like a typical internatinal pop singer

  • A A

    Loved it..and it’s just the beginning.. Rock the world pc

  • Anand

    Who wrote this article?

    a) Her voice sounds so good through pitch correction and autotune.

    b) You can hear the accent because she’s singing. People lose accents while singing. Have you ever heard British singers?

    c)Doesn’t sound Indian? The intro music? It sounds more Indian than most Hindi movie songs nowadays!

  • Ralph

    You indians are friggin morons..
    I guess you havent seen a recording studio EVER..

    You can make ANY non singer sing like the best singer with technical things.

    • nbd

      Yea, cuz Katy Perry, kesha, Jason derulo, (to name few out of many) are such amazing American singers who can hold perfect pitch and never use auto tune, right?

      I’m not in anyway a fan of this video or priyanka Chopras endeavour…but if your gonna criticize, try to individualized your opinion to the issue at hand, or just open up your narrow mind and research about Indian music infrastructure.

    • rahul

      Have u seen……………….bloody
      moron!!!!

  • Rach

    This song will have some shelf life in India, but she is kidding herself if she thinks she’ll have a place on the international charts. where does she stand a chance against riahnna or Lady gaga or even Taylor Swift

  • Reality Check

    1. That does NOT sound like her real voice, there’s so much autotune going on, she may as well have let the electronics create a voice of its own.
    2. The silly cliched and meaningless lyrics are so bad that it’s an insult to the intelligence of the listener.
    3. The music is average
    4. Everything else in the audio is average
    5. There’s absolutely no point to this audio, and makes me wonder why, when there are thousands of genuinely talented singers, musicians, lyricists in India does she get to cut a track this silly?

  • sandy

    wooow what a voice really vry awesome song i hear dis song 10 tyms….really we ol indian r proud of u…come on abhi to or chamatkar karne baaki hai kyu pc? so ol d best for future :)

  • jess

    yes her voice sounds like its been autotuned.. but hey the so-called great artists like britney spears, rihanna or even the rap stars like kanye west use technology too.. and the critics love them. so why judge indian artists by different standards? listen to the music for the purpose it is intended.. enjoyment

  • sherman

    Nice try.. Like everyone said, auto tuned.. its catchy but nothing different actually.. Its like anyone can make this kinda music..

    • lmao

      ever heard of Paris Hilton’s song “Stars are crazy” or something like that…its catchy but U just wanna laugh at urself how they are making fool out of themselves.. lets wait until she sings some hindi numbers than we will talk..lol lol

  • lucky konj

    amazing miss priyanka…..you did it really .never turn back only look forward we are besides you for everything!love yah…..hahaha

  • shali

    She’s another Katy Perry or Britney (who happens to be from Indian)
    India has many people with amazing voices, normal people who could be the next Celine Dion but don;t have the opportunity.

    All the best to Prianka, she’s brave and has ventured out of her comfort zone.

    However, I wish people from the US would hold a talent competition in India, the would find many stars.

  • Balaji Kartha

    Of course PC has the potential to become a singing start in the US. If you have that kind of marketing power behind you, any half-way singer can make it (have not many already done it!). However she will be the first from India and she sure will make a lot of us proud.

  • Parth Bakshi

    About your comment on the accent… have you ever heard a song in Indian English accent! Sounds bloody crap… her accent is just awesome and the song sounds freakin good specially with the accent…. (forgive the roughness)
