1. Bitto Sab Ki Lega

Singers: Mika Singh, Neeti Mohan & Natalie Di Luccio

Lyrics: Luv Ranjan 

This is the highlight track of the album introducing the lead character Bittoo who is a photographer. This one is a fun track which encash the double entendre of the phrase “Bittoo Sab Ki Lega”. Our 21st century listeners are smart enough to get the naughty lines. Mika Singh with his typical punjabi touch along with the chorus girls Neeti Mohan and Natalie Di Luccio has done a good work at vocals but the main punch in the song are the lyrics given by Luv Ranjan who is a guest lyricist for this song. Though the lyrics are repetitive, the youths are surely going to enjoy them. Listen this song and you will press the repeat button not for music but for several other reasons.

2. Kaun Kenda

Singers : Sonu Nigam & Shreya Ghoshal

Lyrics :  Kumaar 

“Kaun Kenda” is one of the best tracks of the album. This is the euphony of romance which makes it a gem. Raghav has done beautiful work in music giving a noticeable impression as a capable music director. The music is light and effective which increased the worth of song to be launched in two versions. You can feel a delightful combination of traditional tabla and other indian instruments with guitar and a soulful background tune. The classic voice of Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal along with the qawwali section makes the song even more lovable. Both Hindi and Punjabi parts of the lyrics enjoyable, meaningful and will easily get to your lips. Go for this on because this can be your next favourite. 

3. Kick Lag Gayi

Singers : Raghav Sachar & Tulsi Kumar

Lyrics : Kumaar 

This one can be termed as a complete Bollywood Punjabi song which resembles a similar track from Yash Raj movies. The song comes in two versions of which this one is the main version sung by Tulsi Kumar and Raghav Sachar who is also the composer of this album. “Kick Lag Gayi” is a dance and “masti” song which has all the ingredients of a hit number. The music is fast and youthful which makes it a good song for Indian wedding parties. The naughty and witty combination of Punjabi lyrics with a little touch of Hindi makes it enjoyable for Hindi audience also. Turn this one on and you’ll be dancing like anything.

4. Audi (Tenu Tak De)

Singers : Raghav Sachar & Natalie Di Luccio

Lyrics : Kumaar 

“Audi (Tenu Tak De)” is a Punjabi hip-hop track. This song again comprise of Punjabi lyrics with English and Punjabi rap section. Raghav Sachar is excellent on vocals while Natalie Di Luccio has done a fine job but the rap section in English is just average. Raghav has given some fine beats which let your feet tap on the move. ‘Audi’ is a track for all our Punjabi freaks, turn it on and you may like it.

5. Kabootar

Singer : Mika Singh

Lyrics : Kumaar 

“Kabootar” is a track to glorify “Bittoo Boss” who’s the lead character in the album. Lyrics are innovative which compare man with Kabootar that is pigeon in a comic sense. Mika on the lead vocals, complemented by chorus girls gave their best. Starts like a typical Mika song but gets a retro touch with guitar and heavy pipe instruments more like those used in 80’s. The song ends with a chorus which comes up as a delightful part. Though there are far better tracks in the album, “Kabootar” secures its own place.

6. Mann Jaage

Singer : Shahid Maliya

Lyrics : Kumaar 

“Mann Jaage” is a sad song which adds to the melody of the album. After his hit track from Mausam Shahid Maliya is back with this one and has placed it perfectly. Meaningful lyrics with soulful music takes the song to new heights. One can find some light beats and use of many different instruments finely crafted in a single song. “Mann Jaage” sounds more like those of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan but still unique in itself. Play this lovely song and you can’t resist yourself from a replay. 

7. Kaun Kenda (Female)

Singers : Shreya Ghoshal & Shahid Maliya

Lyrics : Kumaar 

As the name suggest, this one is the Female version of the main track “Kaun Kenda”. The sweetness of Shreya Ghoshal’s delicate voice can be felt by everyone. Like the main track, this one also goes directly to listener’s heart. Unlike the main track, this one miss the qawwali section but has Shahid Maliya part on classicals which gives it a different touch. You may find it even better than the main version, go for it. 

8. Kick Lag Gayi (Remix)

Singers : Master Salim & Tulsi Kumar

Lyrics : Kumaar 

This one is the remix version of the main track that’s sung by Raghav Sachar. This one is named as remix but actually the pace and even the time of run is approximately equal. Master Salim has done the job on lead male vocals while Tulsi is same on the female vocals. You find this track equally enjoyable as the main track with just a change in voice.

Album ★★★★★★★½☆☆

Bittoo Boss is admirable album and offers more than one expect. Raghav Sachar comes up as a versatile music director as the album takes care of melody lovers as well as party freaks. My picks from the album are Kaun Kenda, Mann Jaage and Kick Lag Gai. So, put your Bittoo Boss tracklist on and you don’t need to skip a track.
