“O Sanam Janeman” is compilation of songs, that the youth that would relate to, a collection of girlfriend pleasers, blending low-tempo ballads and catchier tracks like the title song, the lad cranks up enough energy to whip up a pop squall, if not quite the tempest his nickname Out of Control Punjabi Boy would suggest. It oozes good taste and rigorous professionalism. The artist mixes international sounds like hip-hop, reggae, rap, house and bhangra. There is a song in this album for everyone. “Tere Mere Pyar Nu” is a dance track and a must for party animals on prowl for the floor.

In “Gal Dil Di” the artist opens his heart to woo the lady love.

The album is a blend of different styles that come together brilliantly. By turns, this is a funky hip shaker, a club floor-filler and a thumbs-in-belt-loop head rocker. Mika mixes in some hard, sexy house with a hefty dollop of the disco fast and funky, techno future. Not just another rap, rock and bhangra pop fest, this album is an instant party.
“Hope this year’s valentines gift by Mika also helps him find his soul mate and relieve him off his bachelor’s status“, quips Daler Mehndi on a lighter note.
