Check out our exclusive interview with Mickey below.

For those who prefer reading an interview rather than watching it, here are some excerpts just for you:

Team MissMalini (Team MM): Is a Europe tour on the cards any time soon?

Mickey Singh (MS): Definitely. We are actually planning a Europe tour for this summer this year. We have one show we are going to do, Star Plus Mela, in Birmingham.

Team MM: Let’s cut to the chase, are you single??

MS: [laughs] I am currently single… The only singles I’ve been working on are my next ones!

Ladies, you still have a chance! 😉

Team MM: If we were to see the last played songs on your phone, which songs would we see?

MS: I’ve got the new Chris Brown album, the Weeknd singles, and the Justin Bieber singles. Oh and the Diplo and Skrillex albums.

Team MM: If you were stranded on an island, which 3 singers would you want to be with you?

MS: I would love to have Rihanna there.. I love Rihanna! I would definitely like to have Chris Brown there, because he’s creative. I’ll keep them away from each other haha. And let’s have Priyanka Chopra, because she sings as well and I love her.

We totally agree with you there!

Team MM: What inspires your music?

MS: My music is inspired by real life situations that I go through or what my friends are going through. Music itself inspires me – I listen to a lot of music, all types of music.

Team MM: You recently did a cover for Galliyan, what other Bollywood plans do you have?

MS: We are doing a few Bollywood songs in Bollywood movies. We are doing a Punjabi movie and a few songs for Jimmy Shergil’s next movie. I’m excited for those.

Team MM: What advice can you give to youngsters who want to break into this industry?

MS: Stay disciplined! And always stay inspired, that’s the best thing you can do.

Team MM: What has been the biggest struggle in your musical journey so far?

MS: Definitely getting into the industry. I’ve been working for 8 years and it’s been a journey.

Team MM: Before you go on stage to perform do you have any ritual? Do you get nervous?

MS: Me and my whole team pray. I don’t get nervous – I think it’s the overall thrill of how the stage is going to be and how the crowd is going to be.

And then he sang a few lines of his latest Galliyan remix for us! *Swoon*
