Known for hit songs like "Mann bharrya" and "Masstaani", popular Punjabi singer B Praak claims he has brought about a change in the Punjabi music scene with a new wave of romantic melody.

"The same kind of songs were being made in the Punjabi music industry till a few years ago. There was a time when melodious songs almost got replaced by rap and beat songs. I believe I have broken that chain with my compositions," B Praak told IANS in a telephonic conversation.

"Melody will always be my priority. Even in the beat songs, I try to add melody. I don't find my songs complete without melody. To create meaningful and impactful melody, strong and emotional lyrics are important," he added.

However, departing from his trademark melodious songs, the artiste recently surprised fans with the peppy track, "Nain tere".

According to him, experimentation plays a vital role in an artiste's growth.

"I really wanted to come out of my comfort zone. For long, I was thinking of taking a break from sad songs to do something new. So, I thought it was a great opportunity to be a part of 'Nain tere', and entertain the audience with my new style," he said.

Apart from regaling fans with his Punjabi hits, B Praak, whose original name is Pratik Bachchan, made his debut in Bollywood playback with "Kesari" earlier this year.

He lent his voice to the song "Teri mitti" for the Akshay Kumar-starrer.

Talking about his experience in Hindi showbiz so far, B Praak said: "I am fortunate that I got a chance to sing in Akshay Kumar sir's movie. I feel blessed. It feels great to see how Bollywood is welcoming artistes from different regions with open arms."
