Va Va Voom song from Netflix's upcoming film The Archies was released on Friday. Composed by Shankar Ehsaan Loy with lyrics penned by Javed Akhtar, the song has been sung by Tejus Menon. Ganesh Hegde has choreographed the dance moves inspired by the '60s rock and roll era.
Talking about composing the song, composers Shankar–Ehsaan–Loy jointly said, "The creative process behind this song was truly exciting. We wanted to create a dance number that would immediately compel one to hit the dance floor. Our composition, Tejas Menon's vocals and Javed Akhtar's lyrics all came together as a collaborative effort. Va Va Voom transports you back to the moody rock and roll era of the 1960s. We have effectively tried to capture the essence of that era and look forward to seeing the audience's response to the song."
The Archies director Zoya Akhtar also shed light on the song, adding, "Va Va Voom is a classic Archie comic term. It's a compliment to describe a girl he likes. It's a way of saying she is cool. This song encapsulates the energy of the 60s rock 'n' roll era and romanticizes teenage love. Archie wears his heart on his sleeve as they dance to a super fun Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy composed tune. My dad Va va voomed it, and Ganesh has nailed the choreography. The actors just followed his lead, and as gruelling as it was, we had a blast shooting it"
