PBN make it to number one on the Official Asian Download Chart
Last week we reported how bhangra producer PBN (Panjabi By Nature) was vying for the number one spot on the Official Asian Download Chart with their single Kaun Nee Jaandah. We are now happy to announce that PBN did it and have become the first bhangra single to top the chart since it was launched at the end of March.
PBN’s hit featuring Dhol Foundation and Daljit Mattu was announced as the most downloaded Asian track of the week on the Saturday’s chart show which is hosted by Bobby Friction. Jay Sean, who was last week’s number one, dropped 12 places.
The hit song, which was released early off PBN’s forthcoming album, makes history twice as it is the first bhangra single to top the new chart, and it is the first bhangra track to reach a number one on the UK’s iTunes World Chart.
The new album from Panjabi By Nature, Crowd Pleaser, is currently undergoing the final touches and will be ready for release by the summer.
The top name bhangra producer is also up for two awards at the Brit Asia Music Awards 2010 which are due to take place this coming weekend. PBN is nominated for Best Producer, and Best Album. The winners will be announced at a glittering ceremony being held at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall on Sunday night.
