Amidst high anticipation for his debut full-length album with Ikky, Punjabi Hip-Hop and Pop superstar Karan Aujla continues to raze through digital streaming platforms. His most recent record “Four You” has surpassed a massive 200 million streams across platforms and has become one of the biggest Punjabi rap projects this year.
Notably, the massive numbers on the boards arrive after Aujla expressed concerns over losing millions in Spotify streams after the rapper alleged that the EP’s lead single “52 Bars” was uploaded by fake profiles on the platform. In fact, the fake Spotify upload entered the “Top 50 India” Chart on the platform.
Executive produced by Ikky with assistance from Jamaal Europe, Sandor Shweisberg, Amiri, Phil and more, the four-track project is home to Aujla’s affecting rap records “52 Bars”, “Yeah Naah” and “Take It Easy”. Further, the EP features Aujla’s Punjabi pop record “Fallin Apart”.
After an extraordinary rollout of the EP, which ended with the “Yeah Naah” music video by Qarn Mallhi, the young emcee announced his debut full-length album. While Aujla has been quite private about his lonng-awaited record, the hard-hitting emcee has confirmed that the LP is slated to drop this summer.
In April this year, Aujla linked up with his longtime collaborator and Punjabi Hip-Hop superproducer Yeah Proof on the “P.O.V.” single. The surprise drop easily rose to become one of the finest Punjabi records this year and stirred far-reaching conversations about Aujla’s upcoming album across social media.
Whether “P.O.V.” will find a feature on Aujla’s album remains to be seen. However, since Aujla has confirmed that this would rather be a joint album with Ikky, fans can expect fresh records from “Geetan Di Machine”.
Look out for Karan Aujla’s album this summer.
