With over 25 million views in just a few weeks, you’re expecting a Bieber Christmas song, right? Not this time. The latest online music sensation is not your usual pop album, but a Tanglish song (that’s Tamil + English for the uninitiated). “Kolaveri Di” is the title song of soon-to-be-released Tamil movie, 3, and it is THE song of Winter 2011.
Why so much Kolaveri? It’s the catchy beat and senseless, funny English lyrics that made this a social media craze, including: “White-a-skin, girl. Heart you, black-u.” We’ll be requesting this song at every desi party this season!
The song is all the rage across India and the South Asian diaspora, and as expected, has fueled multiple versions of the song online. Checkout Jugni Style’s Kolaveri collection below and let us know – what’s your favourite Kolaveri?
