In my cityPriyanka Chopra

In My City” is the debut single by Indian actress and recording artist Priyanka Chopra, featuring guest vocals from American rapper will.i.am. The song was released on September 14, 2012, as the lead single from Chopra’s untitled debut studio album. “In My City” was written by Chopra, Ester Dean and RedOne, while the latter also produced the song along with Rush and Brian Kennedy. Chopra had always wanted to be a singer, but never pursued it because of her acting career. After being introduced to Jimmy Iovine, chairman of Interscope-Geffen-A&M records, by Anjula Acharia-Bath the owner of DesiHits, Iovine was impressed by Chopra’s recording and the ideas behind her music. She signed a worldwide recording agreement with Universal Music Group and DesiHits.

Priyanka Chopra, in my city After the contract, Chopra began traveling between India and Los Angeles to work on her album. The demo of “In My City” was first played by will.i.am to Chopra, who was impressed with the track and decided to record it. Chopra explained that the inspiration behind the song was not any one city in particular, since her father was a former army doctor and they had to travel all over India. “In My City” paid homage to this nomadic childhood of hers and journey from being a small-town girl, to being a successful actor. Following the release of the cover art, “In My City” debuted on September 13, 2012, on the NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football, where Chopra was the guest artist. The next day, Universal Music released the CD single in retail stores and also for digital downloads to Nokia Music Store.

“In My City” received mixed reviews from music critics, with one group complementing Chopra’s vocals and the over all dance-pop vibe of the song, while the other group panning the music production and the generic sound of the song. In India, “In My City” was a commercial success, selling 130,000 copies within its first week and ultimately being certified triple platinum. Chopra promoted “In My City” at different nightclubs and bars across India. An official music video of the song was also shot and is awaiting release.
