Spotify debuts Spotify Singles in India

The popular Spotify Singles program comes to India with DJ Snake remixing Dhee’s “Enjoy Enjaami.”

Spotify has brought its Spotify Singles program to India, with French producer DJ Snake remixing Sri Lankan singer Dhee’s track “Enjoy Enjaami.”

Spotify Singles lets artists of all sizes of fanbase record a cover of someone else’s track of their choice, and gives them the chance to release a new version of one of their own songs. It’s an international affair, and “Enjoy Enjaami” is the first single to feature an artist from India.

Head of global music programs at Spotify Andy Sloan-Vincent said: “Spotify Singles have been a powerful medium to foster creativity and collaboration, resulting in a catalogue of unique soundtracks for our listeners from around the world.

“We are thrilled to announce our first Single from India with DJ Snake, one of the biggest global music icons, and Dhee, who has such a powerful voice. Music is borderless and through such collaborations, we want listeners to experience different cultures.”

DJ Snake’s remix reimagines Dhee’s smash hit Tamil-language song with EDM beats. The original “Enjoy Enjaami” featured Dhee alongside The Casteless Collective’s Arivu and composer Santhosh Narayanan. Released in March on composer A.R. Rahman’s maajja platform, the song has over 15 million streams on Spotify.

In May 2021 it was announced that Spotify Singles have now been streamed a total of 5 billion times. Some of the most popular Singles so far have included Benjamin Ingrosso covering Lionel Richie’s “All Night Long”, and Harry Styles performing  “Girl Crush.”
