The tweet is short, but sweet, but it offered up a lot of information. First, the obvious–there’s going to be an Indian version of “Cold Water.”
Second, Diplo tagged @anirudhofficial in the tweet, referencing composer Anirudh Ravichander. Ravichander has primarily worked in films before, with his song “Why This Kolaveri Di” from the film 3 becoming a phenomenon in 2011.
“Diplo is one of the most talented producers I have met,” Ravichander said in a statement. “We together are working on some awesome music, the first of which is the remix of his popular track ‘Cold Water’ with an Indian twist. This will be followed by a slew of original tracks that we are currently working on.”
