|Listen to “Jalebi Baby (Remix)” HERE |
Today, Canadian-Indian rapper, producer and pop star in the making Tesher presents another reimagining of his international smash, “Jalebi Baby,” in the form of a dancefloor-ready remix by producer/DJ DallasK. Jason Derulo appears for his now-iconic guest verse, while DallasK retrofits the track with funky synth licks and a fresh groove. “Jalebi Baby (Remix)” launches Tesher’s runaway hit from dance challenges and wedding routines into the club. Listen HERE.
“Jalebi Baby” has taken on a life of its own over the past year. Fans, Derulo included, took to its cheery groove and cheeky, bilingual lyrics that riff on the popular Indian dessert jalebi. The song continued its rise when Derulo hopped on it this year and the pair shared their feel-good music video in July. The DallasK remix only emphasizes the song’s euphoric energy, spinning up a faster tempo and adding a neon-lit, disco-inflected groove to the irresistible instrumental.
It’s another milestone in Tesher’s meteoric rise, the culmination of over a decade of grinding as an artist. Since his start, Tesher has mixed the film music of India with the sounds of reggaeton, hip-hop and American pop. It all paid off this year, when “Jalebi Baby” went viral on Tiktok. It now sits in the Top 10 highest performing tracks globally on the app and the music video with Derulo just broke 50 million views. On YouTube, the video garnered over 20 million views in its first week and Tesher was just named a YouTube Trending Artist on the Rise.
Across platforms and versions, “Jalebi Baby” has now achieved over 300 million streams globally. The song has become a genuine phenomenon, which has made basically everyone take note. Tesher and Derulo recently even performed the song on TODAY. Each new version, including this remix from DallasK, shows how deep and colorful Tesher’s imagination is. It’s proof that “Jalebi Baby” is just the start for an artist who’s unafraid to cross boundaries between sounds and cultures.
Tesher, a multilingual rapper, singer-songwriter, producer and mixing engineer is bringing South Asian influences to the global soundscape in ways never heard before. His Canadian upbringing and Indian heritage have led him to create genre-defying and energetic music that resonates with audiences beyond his dual identity. Following in the footsteps of K-Pop and Latin acts before him, Tesher authentically bridges the gap between the cultures – owning the narrative and his South Asian identity through his innovative music.
After years of independently uploading his music to YouTube and Soundcloud, Tesher earned widespread recognition for his remix of Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” ft. Billy Ray Cyrus. The remix, which sampled music and lyrics from AR Rahman’s Bollywood hit “Ramta Jogi,” became a hit on social media and grew Tesher’s online profile. Tesher’s “Young Shahrukh,” an original hip-hop song inspired by Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan, continued Tesher’s string of viral hits and was his first to reach #1 on the BBC Asian Music Chart following its release in 2020.
Standing at the forefront of the globalization of music, Tesher equally belongs to both the East and the West. His career skyrocketed in 2020 when he added his own vocals to his remix of Justin Bieber’s “Yummy.” After his vocals blew up on TikTok and Instagram, Tesher found fans begging him to create an independent solo record. With that vote of confidence, he was inspired to create the viral hit “Jalebi Baby,” which he later reimagined with Jason Derulo.
About Jason Derulo:
Forward-thinking, genre-defying, and massively creative, Jason Derulo has staked his claim as one of the most dynamic forces on the global pop landscape. Since breaking through with his five-times-platinum single “Whatcha Say,” the award-winning singer/songwriter has sold more than 200 million records worldwide. His latest triumphs include emerging as one of TikTok’s most influential users, boasting the 11th overall biggest account on the video-sharing platform, prevailing as the fourth-most-followed male and regularly amassing over five million views per TikTok post. Now at work on his highly anticipated fifth album—and full-length debut for Atlantic Records—Derulo recently delivered a series of smash singles while operating as an independent artist. Those tracks include the wildly catchy “Lifestyle” feat. Adam Levine, “Take You Dancing” (a pandemic-era love song that’s inspired over a half-million videos on TikTok) and the double-platinum “Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)”—a collaboration with New Zealand-based producer Jawsh 685 that hit No. 1 on Top 40 radio, with its official BTS remix reaching the top slot on Billboard’s Hot 100. A truly multidimensional creator, Derulo has also established himself as an actor and businessman, investing in enterprises like Catch L.A. and Rumble Boxing and becoming part-owner of Bedlam Vodka. With his most recent ventures including launching an innovation-minded podcast and developing a line of supplements and fitness products with the Najafi Group and BodyBuilding.com, he’s also partnered with Z2 Comics to create a graphic novel — a project based on a superhero called Uzo, the crime-fighting character he first introduced on TikTok.
Based in Los Angeles, DallasK (Dallas Koehlke) has released a string of acclaimed singles, including “All My Life,” “Self Control,” “I Know” and “Sometimes.” Praising the “relatable story” told on “Sometimes,” Billboard asked, “Does true love ever die?…’Sometimes,’ the ghost of the past never really goes away. That’s the kind of love DallasK, Nicky Romero and XYLO wrote about on their summer heartbreak sing-along.”
DallasK is also known for his collaborations with such artists as Tiësto (“Show Me,” “Your Love”), Hardwell (“Area 51”) and KSHMR (“Burn”). He co-wrote and produced Fifth Harmony’s 5x Platinum single, “Work From Home” feat. Ty Dolla Sign, as well as their singles “Down” and “He Like That.” He’s also remixed singles for such artists as Martin Garrix/Bebe Rexha, The Chainsmokers, MGMT, A-Trak/Andrew Wyatt, Skrillex and T.I./Pharrell/Robin Thicke. Most recently, DallasK released his new collaboration with Lauv, “Try Again.” Popdust observed, “It’s impossible to escape his influence. From Ariana Grande and Kesha to Lauv, Katy Perry and Fifth Harmony, Koehlke has curated a staggering number of today’s hits, whether behind the scenes or in the production chair.”
