Yo Yo Honey Singh

Music has the incredible power to move anything beyond its physical limits. There is no account of how mightily it impacts our mind and changes the way we think! Perhaps, this is why it is regarded as one of the most powerful mediums of reaching up to someone. Music has been an imperative segment of the Indian film industry ever since its beginning. The era of 1950s and 60s was the golden era of Bollywood which saw many influential music artists lending their voice to the film industry. Singers like K L Saigal, R D Burman, Madan Mohan were almost worshipped for their penetrating voice. The music back then was a beautiful amalgamation of meaningful lyrics and heavy voice.

The change in time also had a great influence on the music trends of Bollywood. Western music began to gradually influence Indian film industry and then came the era of rock ‘n’ roll, Disco, RnB and Hip-hop! Drum beats and quirky music was heard playing in every place, be it discotheques or cars. The 1980s and early 90s saw a major downfall of the music industry of Bollywood. The unfortunate demise of Kishore Kumar and RD Burman left the industry shattered. Music industry had its new voices but these voices had to struggle hard to enthrall the audience. There aren’t any good musical memories of this era. Bollywood music saw its worst downfall during this period!

The rise of A R Rahman, the voice of Bollywood

It took a good deal of a time to stabilize the industry but as we know that every downfall has an equally effective rise! The 1990s gave the singers an opportunity to revive the charisma of Bollywood. Musical gem like A R Rahman, who magnified the glory of Indian music to the world, was gifted to Bollywood in these years. The music of this legend reached out to the world and he became the voice of Bollywood. A few years later, a sudden wave of remixes took over the industry. For some reason, the music directors tried reviving the golden era by remixing the old classics with Western music. Even though this kind of music was liked by the youth, it didn’t really go well with the critics.

Bollywood has been through many phases in terms of the musical trends. This transition has had both good as well as bad effects on the music industry. The on-going phase of music in Bollywood has been often tagged as an ultra-modernized version of the music industry. Interestingly, the by-gone era were known for the kind of music that was produced that time but today our music is known for just one name – Yo Yo Honey Singh! Ever since this desi-rapper has commixed his magic with Bollywood numbers, rapping has become a sensational trend of today! This kind of impact this raw-star has had over people is totally awe-inspiring. Right from the babies to the oldies, everyone is enchanted by just one single name and that is Yo Yo Honey Singh!

Yo Yo Honey Singh and his ‘anthems’

The birth of a star also gives birth to a number of controversies which try to overshadow his influence. This is exactly what’s going on with Honey Singh these days.

A lot many singers have also publicized their dislike for the kind of songs that are raging these days.
