British singer, songwriter and producer ARJUN returns with his brand new single ‘Take It Back’, releasing on 16th September. The track showcases the award winning UK R&B / pop sensation Arjun with one of the most contagious chorus hooks of the summer, along with his own ultra-slick production and ever smooth vocals.
Having cemented his place as a firm favourite amongst the British Asian music scene, Arjun follows up from a set of hugely successful songs including his unique R&B remixes to popular international film hits such as ‘Why This Kolaveri Di’, ‘Chammak Chalo’ and ‘Tum Hi Ho’, which has seen the British star amass over an incredible 24 million hits on YouTube. One of the UK’s biggest DIY success stories & internet phenomena of recent years, Arjun’s staggering YouTube views and an army of over 170,000 Facebook fans has paved the way for more success with his latest single ‘Take It Back’.
Since bursting onto the scene in 2011 and clinching the #2 spot on Kiss TV's first ever Asian Music Chart with his track 'Stargazer', coming second only to the legendary AR Rahman, Arjun’s rise has been unstoppable. Arjun stamped his mark on the UK music scene when he was voted ‘Best Urban Act’ at the UK Asian Music Awards 2012, where he also performed at the ceremony at Wembley Arena, and was also a Top 20 unsigned finalist in the MTV Brand New contest the same year.
Fast-forward to 2013 and Arjun is armed and ready to take on the UK charts with his infectious cross-pollination of future-classic R&B and savvy-pop on the new single, ‘Take It Back’. The track is a perfectly sculpted dance floor smash, overflowing with Arjun’s signature swagger and Urban grooves. Lyrically, Arjun cleverly cites a roll-call of R&B legends, some of his own personal musical influences, paying homage to the feel-good rhythm & bass of the 90’s, seamlessly weaving lines and showcasing true lyrical prowess.
An instrumentalist, singer, writer and producer, Arjun is truly at home in the studio and has spent the past year writing and recording with industry heavyweights including Jim Beanz & members of Timbaland's team; Mr.Hudson; Davinche; Talvin Singh; Bless Beats; and Alan Sampson, to name but a few. Arjun is set to unleash a series of brand new ground-breaking songs in the forthcoming months to add to a growing and impressive catalogue.
Internationally, Arjun has not only toured across the globe performing in the USA, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, India, Malaysia and Sri Lanka, but also recently made his Bollywood debut, singing on the soundtrack for Indian film, 'Vanakkam Chennai', produced by Anirudh, the man behind the global hit 'Why This Kolaveri Di'.
