Rahman’s Urvashi Urvashi inspires Will.i.am’s Birthday

Oscar-winning Indian composer A.R. Rahman's 1994 chartbuster Urvashi Urvashi has inspired American singer-songwriter Will.i.am's new song  Birthday.
The  Mozart of Madras is excited about the creative partnership.
‘Excited to creatively partner with Will.i.am to recreate an early popular track of mine in a new flavour,’ Rahman posted on his Facebook page Wednesday.
The Birthday song follows the tune of Rahman's peppy number that originally featured in Tamil film Kadhalan, which was dubbed in Hindi as Humse Hai Muqabla and in Telugu as Premikudu. It was picturised on dancer par excellence Prabhudheva.
Will.i.am has reportedly co-produced his new song with Damien LeRoy, and it was co-written with Rahman, up-and-coming R&B artist Cody Wise and US producer Keith Harris.
He thanked Rahman via a tweet. ians
