Veronica (born Veronica Mehta) is an Indian R&B singer based in London, UK, who sings in Hindi, Urdu, English and Punjabi.

Biography[edit]

Aged 16, Mehta successfully auditioned for the part of female vocalist for the 2Kool album 2Kool Flavor. She was featured on the track "Sambhala Hai Meine".

Mehta gave up her art studies course to pursue a singing career and teamed up with Rishi Rich to form VR1, a band and production unit that experiments with traditional Asian music, remixing, and giving vocals an R'n'B twist. VR1 sold more than 50,000 records in the UK and Europe and earned two Asian Pop Media Awards.

After VR1, Mehta joined ePark / Urbanstar and released the single "Girls Gotta Have Fun".

Mehta has recorded a few tracks with her new management record company 2Point9, "Indian Girl" featuring Hard Kaur, and "U 'n' I (Mere Dil Vich Hai)", from the Yash Chopra film Hum Tum.

Mehta's first album, Theen, was released in 2005. "Hey Ya" (featuring Juggy D.) was the only single released from the album.

In 2006, Veronica won "Best Female Act" at the UK Asian Music Awards.[1]

After almost a 3-year gap, she released her third single "Soniya".

Veronica released her second album, Rush, in 2010.
