"My parents got emotional when they heard the song. This was my dad's dream," Priyanka told reporters during the unveiling of her music single.
"My father is an incredible singer. Music is part of my life. My dad has been my biggest influence with music," she said.
Her first song from the album was launched officially on the National Football League (NFL) network.
"It is an important and huge thing for an Indian to have this launch at NFL. This is a one-and-half minute version," Priyanka said. "No Indian has done that... it is surreal."
However, Priyanka is not ready to do live concerts yet.
"I am not prepared for it," she said. "I love performing but when I reach that level I will do live performances. This is just the beginning."
Priyanka's debut single In My City will be available across all physical and digital platforms on September 14, exclusively on Universal music.
