AJ Wavy

From TikTok Bedroom Mashups to a Record Contract

When AJ Wavy started posting music mixes on TikTok, it was “just for fun”. But after his mashups of Bollywood and Western hits gained millions of views, he’s now been signed by Sony.

“It’s been an amazing journey to see it go from just my bedroom to countries all over the world,” AJ tells BBC Newsbeat.

He says everything “just snowballed” towards the launch of his Desi Bop record, a mix of chart-topping tracks.”It’s been a crazy rollercoaster,” he says. “I always used to enjoy producing music and I’ve been musically inclined.”

“It’s something I had my eye on for a long time. To actually see it happen is quite overwhelming,” he says.

That Hotline Bling Remix
A fusion of Western R&B, Hip Hop and Indian pop smash hits has become AJ’s trademark.
Videos mixing The Hills by The Weeknd with Punjabi hit Fallin Star, and a remix of Drake’s Hotline Bling with Bollywood hit Lal Ghagra have gained over 15 million views across TikTok and YouTube.

AJ says he’s proud to say Bollywood star Shahid Kapoor, singer Nicole Scherzinger and sports brands such as Manchester United, Liverpool FC and Formula 1 have all used his Hotline Bling remix sound.
