Speaking about the release of ‘Logical Guy,’ Feyago said, “Logical Guy was first conceptualized by me in 2016 while working with late Tarak Das Baul on my first folk rap project – Baul Rap. I held on to the song because I wanted to wait for the best possible team to collaborate with on this project. Sharoni Poddar from Miliputs is extremely talented. When she came up with the Bangla folk part, I instantly sent the song to Universal Music. It has been a dream come true to be able to produce this song and video with such artistic freedom and attention to detail. My brother, Subhajit Sen has always created visuals for my music since day one, but this time he wanted to go all out and do a long take video!Huge gratitude to the entire team and to Sterling Reserve Music Project for turning independent dreams into commercial reality! I feel extremely blessed!”

This is something that I have never done before but thanks to the wonderful team I enjoyed every bit of it. I think Feyago and Sharoni are super talented and have done a wonderful job. I tried to do my bit. The energy was supreme on the set. I hope the audience will love it just as much as I do.”

It’s our first FolkRap song which is a combination of English Hiphop & Bengali Folk which makes for an awesome hooky & vibey song. Feyago is unique by way of style & his inimitable swagger compounded by Sharoni’s mellifluous voice makes for a song that will be memorable & loved.
