As a part of it’s aim to build a borderless music realm, Spotify has launched its Singles program in India. This World Music Day, we got some super cool news about a collaboration that is sure to excite all music lovers! French record producer and dance-music icon, William Grigahcine, known by his stage name DJ Snake and Tamil artist Dhee are coming together to release a new version of her popular, Tamil independent track ‘Enjoy Enjaami’.

Dhee‘s Enjoy Enjaami ft. Arivu was a song that transcended language and borders in India and became a track that everyone collectively enjoyed. As of today, the original track has amassed nearly 15 million streams on Spotify – a milestone for a Tamil independent single. It was released on A.R Rahman‘s artist-centric platform Maajja and is a tribute to India’s ancestors, and celebrates their spirit in co-existing with nature.

DJ Snake has re-imagined the current smash hit from India, blending distinctive styles influenced by the sounds native to Tamil Nadu with his trademark electronic dance beats that you can’t help but dance to.

Speaking about working with Dhee on this one, DJ Snake says:

Anybody who knows me, knows how special India is to me – I’m always listening and watching for what’s happening there. When I heard ‘Enjoy Enjaami’ for the first time I immediately knew I had to work on it. It was great working with Dhee and to push the new wave of music culture, direct from India. This is the future. Shout-out to Spotify for supporting the vision on this as a Spotify Single.

Dhee, who is the first Indian artist to be a part of the Singles program, says:

I am so excited about being the first artist from India to be a part of the Spotify Singles program and that too for my debut independent single. Can’t wait for everyone to hear what DJ Snake has recreated. It’s awesome! We hope that Spotify listeners across the world enjoy this track.

According to Andy Sloan-Vincent, Head of Global Music Programs at Spotify:

We are thrilled to announce our first Single from India with DJ Snake, one of the biggest global music icons, and Dhee, who has such a powerful voice. Music is borderless and through such collaborations, we want listeners to experience different cultures.

In the past, the Spotify Singles program has brought together artists from different music cultures to create something unique. The collaboration between DJ Snake and Dhee, the first Tamil artist to feature in the program, adds to the other global collaborations featured as part of Spotify Singles, including SahBabii and Joji, Celine Dion and Chris Isaak, and R3HAB and GATTUSO.

I love that Spotify is helping India’s thriving artist ecosystem to engage with new listeners across the world and this one is a track we so needed in these times. Just a track to make you get up and dance, no matter where you belong in the world. The song is out on Spotify now!
