Pussycat Dolls – Jai Ho (A.R. Rahman cover)
Sadly, yes I’m being completely serious. I wasn’t sure whether to call this a cover or a remake or even a remix. Basically, PCD decided to add their vocals to this Polow Da Don produced take on A.R. Rahman’s Academy Award nominated Slumdog Millionaire closer. The scary part is that “Jai Ho” has really good chance of winning the Oscar for best song.
No word on why this song was ever recorded, but I have noticed that someone doesn’t want this song on the internet — all of the links I’ve found, so far, have been deleted. But I managed to cop an mp3, listen to it below:
UPDATE: Apparently PCD is planning on doing a covers album. So far they have covered the Rihanna & Chris Brown duet “Bad Girl” (that might be a bit insensitive now…) and now “Jai Ho,” the Slumdog closer.
