Best Male Singer of 2018 – Who Got Us Swaying the Most?

2. Mohit Chauhan

Mohit Chauhan

What Arijit is now, was Mohit a few years back. Yes, the staple. However, his charm is unfadable, like all the legends. He is still ruling the charts and has an irreplaceable place in our hearts and playlists. He has always been the blue-eyed boy with the golden voice. There is a breeze of fresh air feel to each of his song. His Guncha from 2005 is as tuneful as it could be. However, his career graph spiked when Rang De Basanti came out in 2006 and his song Khoon Chala released. His presence became further profound with ‘Tum Se Hi’ (Jab We Met). That was his legit rise-to-fame moment. It, of course, took only very less time by top composers to see the endless potential in him, and after that, he was on a ride and delivered droves of hits. And, it ‘s not that only people love him, he has his fair share of critical acclaim as well. With being a lead singer of 9 songs of Rockstar – each one of which was a hit – he unlocked another level for a playback singer. His honours and awards list (1 IIFA Award, 2 Filmfare Awards, 1 Screen Award, and 3 Zee Cine Awards) is a firm affirmation of the fact how much he has been loved by critics.

With the impassioned Is This Love (Kismat Konnection), Tujhko Jo Paaya (Crook), Tujhe Bhula Diya (Anjaana Anjaani), he can surface feelings to the moon and back. He also kept us lightly delighted with soul-stirring melodies like Masakali (Delhi-6), Mann Lafanga (Lafangey Parindey), Pee Loon (Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai). In 2018, he sang for Padman, 3 Storeys, Dil Juunglee, and more.

So, verdict? His profound growth and establishment as the chart-ruler is here to stay.
