Mumbai, May 11 : Indo-Canadian actress Sunny Leone has joined forces with Canadian producer and DJ of Indian descent, UpsideDown, for the video of the song “Got it all”.
It also features The PropheC, a Canadian singer-songwriter of Indian descent.
“We continue to push the boundaries of music by incorporating our culture and with the help of like-minded creatives. I’m grateful we are turning our dreams into reality,” UpsideDown, known for hits like Mickey Singh’s “Phone” and Jasmin Walia’s “Temple”, said in a statement.
The PropheC believes UpsideDown has created his own lane in terms of production and “I am proud to be apart of it and continue to push our boundaries”.
UpsideDown and The PropheC take on the role of handymen in their music video who head to work at Sunny’s mansion.
Google is reportedly interested in purchasing US-based social video app Firework that lets users share short videos like Chinese player TikTok.
According to a report in The Wall Street Journal, Chinese micro-blogging platform Weibo had also shown interest in acquiring Firework but “talks with Google are further along”.
Based in Redwood City, California, Firework that entered India last month was valued at more than $100 million in a fundraising round earlier this year. TikTok’s parent, Beijing-based ByteDance, is valued around $75 billion.
irework is part of a suite of apps created by Loop Now Technologies, a start-up that focuses on next-generation consumer mobile applications.
Similar to Tiktok that allows users to post 15-seconed short videos, Firework allows users to create 30-second videos and with “Reveal”, its patent pending technology, it will allow creators to take both horizontal and vertical video in one shot from their mobile device.
The app is currently available on both iOS and Android smartphones with over a million registered users.
Firework has appointed Sunil Nair as CEO and MD for its India operations.
“My vision for Firework in India is to become more relevant and give our users every opportunity to stay meaningful and seamlessly experience a new view from their lens,” Nair said in a statement.
In November last year, Facebook also quietly released a stand-alone app called “Lasso” to compete with TikTok.
On Lasso, which is currently available in the US, users can record themselves dancing and lip-syncing to music, similar to what they can do on TikTok.
In addition, Facebook recently roped in former Google employee Jason Toff for a key portfolio and the speculation is rife about the social networking giant preparing the global launch of its short video-sharing app. (IANS)
