the voice is a traditional Punjabi song, this remix makes it to sound modern
just to change the subject a bit, isn't the song called Turn it up? Or at the very least Turn it up(remix(/Fire it up ?>
if you look at the very link you posted to wikipedia it says it was released as a single in 1998 in the uk.. that's in the "chart performance" section.. the song became very popular and it became a hit in 2002 partly because of the Jay-z remix of the song
@Nicks: You seem right, Discogs also shows the song was released in 2002.
Panjabi's song not in 1998! "Mundian to Bach Ke" was released in November 25, 2002.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mundian_To_Bach_Ke
We've changed this as the hi-hats from Panjabi MC match those in 'Fire It Up'. Obviously it would have been the instrumental sampled to get a clean loop, I can't find one in the vocal/video version.
Wow, that's a great sample... so unexpected.
