The Record Music Magazine Win Tickets to See Boom!
Tata Young
The Dhoom girl, as most of you know her, is back in action with a brand new album prophetically titled Temperature Rising. The Record manages a quick chat with the singer and here she is telling us about her new release, her experience with the song Dhoom and how she still remains sexy, naughty and a little bit bitchy too!

The Record: Temperature Rising is a fun name for the record ~ tell us what you did differently on this one.
Tata: I wanted to add some music that is different. I am a big hip-hop fan, so I wanted to add that sound, something new, energetic and fun and it came out pretty much the way I wanted it to be.

TR: You have a song called I Must Not Chase The Boys… what’s the story behind that one?
Tata: It’s great fun! The first time I heard I Must Not Chase The Boys, I really liked the lyric because it’s a good transition from Sexy, Naughty, Bitchy. It still explains Tata Young, but at the same time, it explains that she does not chase the boys. [Laughs] Another fun song is Betcha Neva ~ it talks about a relationship with someone like me. To be in a relationship with someone like me is never easy because I’m always travelling… it’s difficult but the song says, ‘Yeah we’re together at last even though we never thought it would happen’.

TR: Do you have a favourite track off the album?
Tata: Mila Mila [composed by Sandeep Chowta] is one of my favourites. I also got to work with songwriter Diane Warren [Because You Loved Me by Celine Dion, Can’t Fight The Moonlight from the Coyote Ugly OST, I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing by Aerosmith]. I met with Diane in L.A. and at first they told me she had 20 minutes to meet with me because she is, of course, such a very busy person. We ended up talking for about an hour and a half. She’s just a wonderful person, I never thought she would be so cool! She’s very cool and talented.

TR: How did Mila Mila come to be included in your album?
Tata: I personally like Hindi music a lot ~ I like the way it sounds; I like everything about it. So I said to the producer that I would like one track on my album. I wanted something great like Dhoom but also something different from it musically. Mila Mila is a very sexy song, and it requires you to use a lot of talent with your voice too. It was very difficult singing the song, but it went very well with Sandeep.

TR: We last spoke to you just before the success of Dhoom ~ how was that whole experience for you?
Tata: When I first heard the song I just said ‘This is going to be huge!’ That was the same thing I thought when I finished recording the track ~ ‘It’s going to be huger’, you know. I knew it was going to be big and fun, it was great!
