For Indiepop fans Baba Sehgal is not an unknown name of the music industry. Born as Harjeet Singh Sehgal, he is considered to be the world’s first Hindi rapper who occasionally makes desi renditions of famous English songs. Along with his quirky remakes, he is also known for his acting and comedy. At times, Baba Sehgal takes social media by storm with his catchy tunes. And now he is back with his version of the hit song senorita by Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes. As expected, Twitter couldn’t get enough of it.
Baba Sehgal uploaded a video showing three versions of him simultaneously on the screen. It opens with two characters of Baba Sehgal sitting in front of a TV discussing if they could try something new this time. To which, the third character from inside the television suggests that they could make a Hindi cover of Senorita, called ‘Sarita.’ The trio then sings the lyrics as ‘Rakha Hai Teri Mom Ne Naam Sarita, Likhi Hai Maine Tere Liye Kavita, Surahi jaisa Galalala, Ring Main Lekar Aya Flat Bhi Sell Karaya…’ Although this Baba Sehgal version was released in 2019, it has resurfaced on social media now.
The clip’s caption said that for us it’s Senorita but for him it’s Sarita. Listen to the complete peppy tune here:
It created a buzz online and the video took the Internet by storm as it racked up more than 1,50,000 views. The catchy tune was loved by netizens who showered their appreciation and love in the comments section.
