Jai Ho (You Are My Destiny) Doll Domination 2.0



Back to back again, with me, i was very boring this morning, thus, i decided to put some texts to my blog, well, blogger always repeat the same thing, if they have ideas, it's better to write down something. For your information, i'm currently "in-progress" to polish my skill in writing some interesting articles. Just shuddap ur goddamn mouth (i meaned me!!). Suddenly,I just browsed about my favourite music, Jai Ho (You Are My Destiny) by pussycat dolls. I found out it's very interesting to share with bloggers. ( I JUST LOVE PUSSYCAT DOLLS!!!)

Let's see what i've digging about Jai ho!!!!

"Jai Ho" is a Hindi song composed by A. R. Rahman, written by Gulzar, and performed by Sukhwinder Singh and Rahman, for the end credits of the film Slumdog Millionaire (2008), where it accompanies a choreographed dance sequence. The song also features vocals by Tanvi Shah, Mahalakshmi Iyer and Vijay Prakash.

In translation, the title means "Freedom to Thee". It can also mean "Praise", "Hail" or "Hallelujah". When translated directly into hindi, "jai" means "prayer" or "pray." "Jai ho" is usually said collectively during and at the end of prayers. The lyrics are mostly in Hindi, Urdu and Punjabi interspersed with some Spanish lyrics. Rahman, who performed "Jai Ho" live on The Oprah Winfrey Show on February 23, 2009 with the rest of the original performers, was asked by Winfrey what the song title means. A.R. Rahman then stated "Jai Ho" means "May Victory be Yours".


PUSSYCAT DOLLS VERSION

The song was recorded in 2009 by the Pussycat Dolls with English lyrics and featuring lead vocals from Nicole Scherzinger. Produced in collaboration with A. R. Rahman and Ron Fair, Scherzinger prefers to consider this version an interpretation of the original song rather than a remix.The music video, shot in a Vienna trainyard, alludes to the dance sequence in the film.
The song was released on February 23, 2009 on the U.S. iTunes Store and released Internationally on February 24. The song debuted on both the Billboard Hot 100 and Canadian Hot 100 at number 100. The song initially was released as a promotional single, but will now be released as the first worldwide single from Doll Domination: 2.0 Version, it will be the fifth overall single to be released from the Dolls since 2008.

CRITICAL RECEPTION

Digital Spy said that "The Hindi original, which soundtracks the Bollywood dance routine at the end of the movie, is far more urgent and atmospheric, but this remake works nicely enough as a slick, shamelessly opportunistic PCD single. Well, that hollered "JAI HO!" makes for a pretty sweet pop hook, you have to admit".


MY COMMENT : The reason i withdraw this article to enlighten the misconception @ misunderstood created by friends of mine who thought JAI HO song was the religion supersiticious of hinduism. THAT's perfectly UNTRUE and here some of the facts that might clear-off the misconception. OVERALL rating for this song is **** out of *****. I Just love it!!
