Presenting the collaboration you never knew you wanted but definitely needed – Punjabi singer Diljit Dosanjh and Australian musician Sia!

The desi G.O.A.T. (greatest of all time) and musical diva from down under shared the microphone for their fresh track Hass Hass which was dropped on Friday.

Diljit Dosanjh is internationally renowned for starring in an array of Punjabi films as well as a lengthy and widely celebrated discography. The Born To Shine and Patiala Peg singer garnered global attention after performing at American music festival Coachella earlier this year. Dosanjh has just wrapped up his whirlwind tour of Australia and New Zealand that broke records after selling out arenas across both countries.

Australian musical icon Sia is a household name with her extensive work in the entertainment industry and her unique singing style. Credited for hits such as Chandelier, Cheap Thrills and Unstoppable, Sia has also written songs for the likes of Rhianna, Beyoncé, Britney Spears and Kylie Minogue.

The Punjabi-English fusion song features Sia’s signature vocals as Dosanjh soothingly serenades to an upbeat and high energy instrumental. What is amplifying up to be the love anthem of the Summer, Hass Hass is already topping charts and has won the hearts of fans worldwide. The beachy vibes of the music video paired with the heart-warming lyrics makes it the perfect pick-me-up song for any upcoming party.

The standout element of the entire track has to be Sia’s attempt at singing in Punjabi in unison with Dosanjh, an incredibly special touch that makes the duo addicting to tune in to.

Social media was sent into a frenzy after the track went live unexpectedly and as a surprise to fans of both Dosanjh and Sia. Dosanjh is currently reigning the Punjabi music industry after releasing his album Ghost and Sia has long had her place cemented on international music charts. With the song seeing two musical worlds collide on the global stage, fans have been buzzing about the track on X (formerly Twitter) since its release.

To the delight of many, Diljit Dosanjh lent a few pages in his book to Sia as she sings the entire outro in Punjabi. The Aussie singer was commended for her fluency and netizens have applauded her for making the effort to learn the language for the song. She absolutely nails the pronunciation of the Punjabi verse so kudos to the musical queen for having a go.

The hit’s music video has already reached 1.9 million views on YouTube in 3 days and is trending across the globe, including #1 in Australia on the video platform. As expected, the song has already gone viral on TikTok with over 1,500 made by fans dancing or reacting to the track.
