Divya, who sang the chart-buster 'Jee Karda' number from 'Badlapur' last year, feels adding a rap portion to the re-created song takes away the purity which the original track has.

"For me, the 90s is a very emotional era. The essence of 90s music cannot be brought back...It was very pure, you can't add rap to it and make it modern. 'Aashiqui 2's soundtrack was successful because they didn't recreate any of the hit tracks of the previous films," Divya told media.

The singer has lent his voice to hit songs like 'Maston Ka Jhund' from 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' and 'Sunn Saathiya' from 'ABCD 2'.
    
It was however, 'Jee Karda' which brought him to instant fame. Divya feels a Bollywood song has to be a hit if it wants to reach out to maximum people even though the independent music scene in the country is slowly flourishing.

Divya has sung the song 'Binu Baadar' in the Priyanka Chopra-starrer 'Jai Gangaajal', which hit screens today.

The singer says he had a great time recording the track for music composer Salim-Suleiman, with whom he worked for the first time.
