Raghav’s Hit Single :: So Much


Canada – You remember Raghav from "Angel Eyes" – but he’s back now with "So Much" featuring hometown hero Kardinal Offishall. Raghav signed to mainstream label Cordova Bay Records out in Vancouver and they signed him partly based on the belief that his core South Asian fanbase will step up to plate and support him with iTunes sales and YouTube views.

If we can create a story as a community – the mainstream music industry will realize and respect the power of the neoDesi generation. With your help – not only can we get Raghav on the charts to #1 – but we’ll also open the doors even wider for future neoDesi artists. Lets go Canada! Do your part to support the movement.

Lets break the top 100 this week on iTunes!

Raghav has been added to radio stations across Canada – now we need your support to drive him up the charts. Email, text, tweet and call in your request for Raghav “So Much” featuring Kardinal Offishall!  Check him out at the following radio stations – more coming soon:
