atch: Karenjit Kaur-The Untold Story of Sunny Leone’s song ‘It’s Hot’ lives up to its name – Bollywood or the Indian entertainment industry in general is currently on a biopic-making spree. While the one that most people might be resonating with right now is current box-office giant Sanju, another life story that’s breaking the internet is that of Sunny Leone. Or, better yet, that of Karenjit Kaur. While the online series based on her life, Karenjit Kaur-The Untold Story of Sunny Leone, has already received its fair share of positive appreciation, the latest song ‘It’s Hot’ is defintely going to stir up people’s interest in her life.
The track (at least, what’s been released) might be only one-and-a-half minutes long, but it manages to sell itself and the entire show in that short time span. The song is fun and effervescent, and encapsulates the fun and bubbly vibe that Leone often gives off, this time in a pop song.
The song has been written and produced by hip-hop artist Tallz and sung by Naquita D’Souza, although you can tell that Hindi may not necessarily be Naquita’s language of choice (although, to be fair, the same could be said for the actress it’s pictured on). The song clearly says that everyone knows what Leone does, but she’s okay with it, there’s no point in denying any of it and not living her truth.
The one line that repeats the most in the song is “Baby I’m hot“, which isn’t untrue. When it comes down to it, the song is blissfully self aware, because Leone does acknowledge what people think of her and shuts them down, which is a good way to describe the series in general.
The song’s music video is just what you’d expect, a collection of shots of Leone living the party lifestyle, interspersed with scenes from the actual series. There are quite a few scenes from the video that have been inspired (if not directly adapted) from the music video for Katy Perry’s ‘This is How We Do’, with Perry herself being known for her animated and campy music videos. At the end of the day, it’s all pretty fun and poppy, and there’s nothing wrong with a little sugary sweet confection sometimes.
