Arijit Singh is one of the most popular playback singers today. After Arijit Singh came into the spotlight with the romantic title “Tum Hi Ho” from the film Aashiqui 2, he is now irreplaceable in the industry.
His voice has the melody to sweeten every romantic song and the pain it takes to melt hearts and induce tears. Though more synonymous with melodic romantic numbers, Arijit is versatile in singing and has also directed many party songs for Bollywood films.
Arijit comes from Murshidabad in West Bengal and has sung in various Indian languages, of course also in Bengali. Born on April 25th this year, the singer is celebrating his 33rd birthday.
Bollywood music has evolved over decades, generations, and even musical instruments, but the vocals behind some of the most heartwarming and popular songs have remained. These singers have guided us through happiness, partying and even in sad moments. Although there are some voices that have made us return to this one or thousands of songs. Arijit Singh is such a songster. His voice makes us pass out in an alternative reality of only flowers and sunshine.
While Singh celebrates his 33rd birthday on April 25, BizAsiaLive.com looks at five of his fascinating songs during his more than ten-year career.
In addition to his hits used in films, Arijit has several singles and albums for his fame. On the occasion of his birthday, here are the top 5 of his non-film songs.
Title track – “Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas” (2019)
Singh’s heartwarming version of “Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas” fascinated the audience and became one of the most popular songs of 2019. Singh’s soulful song, a duet with Parampara Thakur, composed by her and Sachet Tandon, conveys the hope and belief that love will be next to you when you need it most. Love is full of adventure and obstacles, but companionship brings you together. It is impossible not to submit to this belief when you serenade Singh.
The heartbreaking tune became one of the most popular songs of the year. Vicky Kaushal and Nora Fatehi sang “Pachtaoge” by Arijit, while the lyrics and composition of the song came from Jaani and the music from B Praak.
Title track – “Hamari Adhuri Kahani” (2015)
A story of love and loss could not have been told more beautifully than with Singh’s soothing song. The title track of “Hamari Adhuri Kahani” composed by Jeet Gannguli described an unconditional journey of belonging and separation. The characters of Vidya Balan and Emraan Hashmi evoke deep feelings of heartache as Singh guides us through what could have been.
Ishq Mubarak – “Tum Bin 2” (2016)
Singh’s love ballads are praised, re-created and possibly some of the first songs that have shaped many date nights. His portrayal of Ishq Mubarak from “Tum Bin 2” is depicted on Aditya Seal and Neha Sharma, where you get from a night of discovery to stealing glances in between and laughing heartily. They fall in love again and again throughout the song and thank Singh for that.
First class – “Kalank” (2019)
While Singh’s romantic melodies are playing playlists, one cannot forget that his optimistic dance numbers are no less popular. First class from “Kalank” is this foot tapping track, where you forget all your problems or just dance when there are none. Singh encounters the melodies of the composer Pritam with the same passion for fun and playfulness in this Varun Dhawan character introduction.
Muskurane Ki Wajaah – “City Lights” (2014)
There are many things you can do when you are in love. Smile as you speak, smile as you write, smile as you plunge through life. In Jeet Gannguli, who composed Muskurane Ki Wajaah from “Citylights”, Singh describes this overly familiar feeling with a lot of intensity. Given a family’s heartbreaking struggle to make ends meet, you can’t help but hum as it pulls your heart.
It is difficult to imagine a music world without Arijit Singh’s countless hits in all genres and many languages. wishes Singh a very happy and musically filled birthday!
