Born Taran Kaur Dhillon, this Meerut born’s success as Hard Kaur occurred when she returned to Indian shores after having based herself in Birmingham. Hard Kaur’s entry was quite dramatic too as she had one record label initiate promotional gigs in 2006, but the rapper signed onto another label, culminating with her solo debut, ‘Supawoman’, the following year. Since then, Hard Kaur has indulged in Bollywood as well continued a parallel career as an independent singer with evolving sounds from pop rap to – and in living up to her name – hard core as on “Sherni”, where the lyrics have been written and the music composed by the artiste herself. While her new musical identity and rap approach makes Hard Kaur’s sound leaner as on the existing arrangements of “Sherni”, her rapping has got tougher and more fluid, and the results seem to have worked on this song that appears to work well for an audience ready to accept an Indianised twist on Western hip hop.
