"With such a great beat, it's definitely one of the best Jazzy B songs ever."
Since Jazzy B burst onto the scene way back in 1993, he’s gone on to release many bhangra hits. DESIblitz narrows nearly 150 incredible tracks into a simple 10 of the best Jazzy B songs for bhangra music lovers.
The Punjabi singer-songwriter first came into our lives back in 1993 with his debut album, Ghugian Da Jorra. And there’s been 11 official album releases, and plenty of hit singles since then.
Despite now being 42-years-old, Jaswinder Singh Bains – Jazzy B – is still producing and releasing catchy new tunes.
Most recently was his stunning new 2017 album with Sukshinder Shinda, Folk N Funky 2.
DESIblitz goes through all the hits to bring you 10 of the best Jazzy B songs from over the years.
Starting from the very beginning, these 10 of the best Jazzy B songs perfectly explain why he is the undisputed Crown Prince of Bhangra.
Landono Patola (1995)
‘Landono Patola’ is arguably one of Jazzy B’s earliest mega-hits. The track is a part of his successful third album from 1995, Folk ‘n’ Funky.
Kulvinder describes ‘Landono Patola’ as: “An absolutely fantastic track, even after all of this time!”
If you don’t remember this classic Jazzy B track, or simply want to hear it again, be sure to check it out in our DESIblitz playlist of the 10 best Jazzy B songs below.
Recently, in 2017, Jazzy and Sukshinder Shinda came together to create an eagerly anticipated sequel to the original album.
Folk ‘N’ Funky 2 reunites the two bhangra legends, and also features a sequel to ‘Landono Patola’. While ‘Londono Patola Reloaded’ is a brilliant song, it’s very difficult to beat an original classic!
Sukshinder Shinda’s iconic musical beat behind Jazzy B’s vocals in ‘Naag’ is simply unforgettable.
Krishan says: “I love the beat in ‘Naag’, it’s definitely one of the best Jazzy B songs ever.” And it’s hard to argue any differently.
Despite releasing a ‘Naag 2’ (Hyper, 2010), and a ‘Naag The Third’ in Folk ‘N’ Funky 2 (2017), neither can beat the sensational original. from the 2001 Oh Kedi album.
That is why ‘Naag’ from Oh Kedi (2001) makes it onto our list of the 10 best Jazzy B songs.
Jazzy B’s 2004 Romeo album was ground-breaking. DJ Kay, of Ultra Sounds Entertainment, says:
“Jazzy B’s Romeo album completely changed the Punjabi music industry. It showed everyone that mixing an old-school hip-hop beat with Punjabi vocals is a guaranteed recipe for success.”
Since the release of ‘Romeo’, there have been more hip-hop and western sounds appearing in bhangra music.
‘Romeo’ just about edges ahead of ‘Soorma’ in making it onto our DESIblitz 10 best Jazzy B songs. But then ‘Yaari’ and ‘Tappe’ could also have easily made it too!
Dil Luteya (2004)
But coming into our 10 best Jazzy B songs ahead of those other Romeo album titles is ‘Dil Luteya’.
University student, Simran, says: “‘Dil Luteya’ is my favourite Jazzy B track because it’s my childhood song. I grew up listening to it all the time, and it’s one of those songs that you just can’t forget.”
It’s yet another track with an iconic beat and a catchy chorus – exactly what we expect from Jazzy B.
Have a listen to ‘Dil Luteya’ (2004) in our playlist below, and you will be singing along in no time.
As with the Romeo album, we could easily include several of the tracks on Rambo in our list of the best Jazzy B songs.
‘Gaddi’ is a part of the Rambo album also featuring classic songs such as ‘Glassy’, ‘Dilla Nu’, and ‘Rambo’ itself. And for us, here at DESIblitz, ‘Gaddi’ just about edges itself ahead of those.
Kiran says: “Whenever I hear ‘Gaddi’, it brings back so many happy childhood memories. It used to be played so much at wedding parties, and I loved the dance moves that people used with the song.”
With his Maharajas album, Jazzy B won the 2012 ‘Best Non-Resident Punjabi Album’ award at the PTC Punjabi Music Awards.
Despite being a runner-up in the ‘Best Album of the Year’ category at the 2012 Brit Asia TV Music Awards, the album did help Jazzy B to win ‘Best Male Act’ at the same event.
‘Maharajas’ (2011) is a clear example of the unique style that Jazzy B and Sukshinder Shinda have.
Naveen says: “This song always pumps me up and has me on the dancefloor at weddings and other occasions.”
This Party Getting Hot (2012)
Featuring Yo Yo Honey Singh, ‘This Party Getting Hot’ (2012) has over 17 million YouTube views.
The collaboration between these two huge names is itself enough to get it onto our list of best Jazzy B songs. But the outcome of the song is worthy of the huge collaboration!
The song was named ‘Most Popular Song of the Year’ at the 2013 PTC Punjabi Music Awards. It also helped Jazzy B to win the ‘Best Non-Resident Punjabi Vocalist’ award at the same event.
Gurjot says: “This song is so good. Jazzy B and Yo Yo Honey Singh should do more songs together.”
In 2014, Jazzy B once again won the ‘Best Non-Resident Punjabi Vocalist’ prize at the PTC Punjabi Music Awards.
But this time it was thanks to ‘Feem’, featuring Diamond Cut. Despite being a more electronic sound behind Jazzy B’s vocals, the song still works.
Raman says: “The music, the lyrics, the vocals, and the video are all great. ‘Feem’ deserves to be in a list of the best Jazzy B songs.”
Mitran De Boot (2014)
With over 32 million YouTube views, ‘Mitran De Boot’ (2014) is the top Jazzy B song in terms of online views. The track puts Jazzy B together with Dr Zeus and Kaur B and the result is incredible.
The song was the 2015 ‘Most Popular Song of the Year’ at the PTC Punjabi Music Awards. Jazzy B and Kaur B were also named as the ‘Best Duet Vocalists’ for their parts in ‘Mitran De Boot’.
Despite there being some controversy about the meaning and message behind the song, there is no doubt about it being catchy.
Aarti says: “Every time ‘Mitran De Boot’ comes on at a party, it makes me get up and dance. It’s been one of my favourite songs since its release.”
Our most recent song to make the list of 10 best Jazzy B songs is ‘Repeat’ (2015).
‘Repeat’ helped the Crown Prince of Bhangra to win the ‘Best Non-Resident Punjabi Vocalist’ award at the PTC Punjabi Music Awards for an incredible fifth consecutive time.
Inderpal says: “’Repeat’ is an evergreen track. I never cut it down, I have to always watch the full video.”
