LISTEN TO ‘LEAN ON’ HERE
Rising starlet Celina Sharma has teamed up with one of India’s premier artists, Emiway Bantai for her debut single ‘Lean On’ which is out now on Virgin EMI.
The track perfectly weaves Celina’s taste for house influenced pop with Emiway’s unique lyrical stylings to create a song that mixes influences from both Western music and Celina’s Indian heritage.
The Australian 17-year-old got started sharing covers on TikTok as a teenager and over time amassed nearly 200k thousand followers worldwide on the platform, and was discovered when international cricket legend Chris Gayle posted a video of her on his Instagram. Since then her profile has been growing and growing, to the point where she’s performed with the singer Yashua during his support slot for CNCO in Miami in front of 30,000 people and has been named a BBC Asian Network Future Sounds Artist 2019, all before she’s even dropped her first single.
Emiway Bantai, is an independent artist and one of India’s best rappers. He released his first hit single ‘Aur Bantai’ in 2014, and since then several of his tracks have crossed millions of views on YouTube. He’s considered the king of underground music with over 7.3 million YouTube subscribers and over 1.5 followers on Instagram. Emiway is one of the very few music artists in India that have catapulted themselves into superstardom solely with the use of social media. With his lyrical dominance, dynamic flow, and organic reach, Emiway is ready to make a global impact.
With a diverse group of influences (everyone from Freddie Mercury and Aretha Franklin to Rihanna), Celina is setting out to fuse western pop with Indian influences as she starts to write her own material and people can expect much more to come.
