When asked to name the best voice of this generation, most of our minds, in a perfect sync, replied with just one name – Arijit Singh!
The Kishore Kumar of this era!
Hailing from the sweetest part of India, Arijit has cemented himself as one of the most prominent singers the nation has ever seen. He has an extremely soothing voice that never fails to make its way to the audience’s heart.
Arijit’s interest in music can be traced back to his childhood. He grew up in a family that revered music as much as he did. This added fuel to the fire already burning within him. However, the journey wasn’t a walk in the park. He went through his fair bit of struggle to gain his footing in Bollywood.
His first song, ‘Phir Mohabbat’ from Murder 2 in 2011, broke the internet and he was instantly admired by the critics and audiences alike for his beautiful voice.
Romance found a new definition with Arijit’s melody!
Despite working on great songs in movies like Barfi, his songs from Aashiqui 2 were the ones that brought him into the spotlight. The songs Chahun Main Ya Na and Tum Hi Ho have become the love anthem for the entire nation. (Quite literally!)
After his success from Aashiqui 2, there was no looking back for Arijit. There’s hardly a film that doesn’t have at least one song that says ‘Singer: Arijit Singh’. What is even greater is that the quality of his songs has never wavered. If a song has Arijit’s name on it, we already know that it’s a masterpiece. That’s the kind of persona he has built over the years!
There’s no genre in music that Arijit can’t master
Arijit’s greatest hits are his romantic songs like Phir Bhi Tumko Chahunga and Agar Tum Saath Ho. However, he is more versatile than most people give him credit for and he has proved this with songs like Nashe Si Chad Gayi and First Class.
All this talk about the music maestro has got me craving to put my headphones on, play his songs and get lost in the feelings they awaken. I am sure all of you are going to do just that, so here’s a list of some of his best songs:
Tum Hi Ho
Agar Tum Saath Ho
