Singer Dhvani Bhanushali knows the nerve of her audiences, I say this because the girl delivers some really peppy and hit songs one after the other. While her songs Mera Yaar and Mehendi have been at the top of my playlist, the latest song Candy which is in collaboration with Yuvan Shankar Raja has also left me very impressed. The scale at which it has been made is quite grand, and while the music and lyrics are quite contemporary, the entire feel of the songs took me back to the 90s pop-music era. But this song is special for Dhvani in more than one way, while it is bi-lingual, it has been released on her father Vinod Bhanushanli‘s new music label called Hitz Music.  

Check out the song here:

While this is Dhvani’s first collaboration with Yuvan, the song has been directed by Amith Krishnan and choreographed by Suren. One fun fact, you ought to know about this track is that the music instrument ‘nadaswaram’ is majorly used in its composition.

Talking about the song Dhvani says,

Candy is special for several reasons. I felt so lucky when Yuvan Sir reached out and said I fit the song just right and I got a chance to sing for his song. I have been a fan of his music for years and singing for his composition is a dream. We’ve all put our heart and soul into the song and this is the first song on Hitz Music making it extra special. I just hope you guys give it all the love you have. Plus, it’s Pink.

Sharing his thoughts on the song, Yuvan says,

The ‘nadaswaram’ is a very classical instrument and used in classic tunes, but we’ve used it in this composition in a very different manner. The song is about a free-spirited girl and it blends in beautifully with that vision. Dhvani very easily could voice this Indian and western blend and that’s what made her perfect for the song.

On the first song released under Hitz Music, Vinod Bhanushali adds,

Both Dhvani and Yuvan embody the inspirations and dreams of the youth and their free spirit. Candy highlights this and more. The song is unique and stands out from the clutter and at Hitz Music we hope to bring many more such songs.

To be honest, after listening to the song, I have only been humming it and I am sure it will have the same effect on you.
