They say, Rome was not built in a day. It took a lot of efforts and hard work to establish one of the most powerful empires of history. Similarly, Punjabi music industry owes its glory today to years of amazing talents that have kept the spirit, the Punjabiyat alive. However, 2018 witnessed some success stories that became a rage across platforms and social media.
Punjabi entertainment industry trended all over the social media as well as DJs and Saavn, Gaana, TikTok and what not! While some names like Sidhu Moosewala continued their reign from 2017, some artistes conquered the hearts with just one song. Here’s a list of all the names that have etched on our hearts forever and their song which will be on our playlist always:
Laung Laachi came and Mannat Noor became queen of melody overnight. The song came early this year and established the lady as a bankable vocalist. Her song has been streamed almost 552 million times on the YouTube and rightly so. With oh-so beautiful lyrics written by Harmanjit and musical masterpiece by Gurmeet Singh, the song was meant to rule the charts. Neeru Bajwa dancing to the number just added the cherry on the top of the cake.
If heartbreak was this groovy, we would want to feel it too. Teeje Week became the break-up anthem of 2018 and Jordan Sandhu became the cute boy we would never go chhaddke. Whosoever said ‘I am done with you’.... We’ll never be done with this charming singer, ever.
Manak’an da Munda stole our hearts with his endearing smile and chocolaty looks. Prada became a chartbuster even before the video came out. It played on loop everywhere, from cabs to autos to mobilephones. Jass Manak came back with two more songs, each equally good. And we are now looking forward to every work this gem does.
Gurnam may have entered the music world two years ago but it was Diamond this year that got him into the limelight. We never knew that man could kill with those dimples even better than his voice. Then came Fakira and we knew there’s nothing in this world that could stop our hearts melting for him. Now we eagerly wait to see him debut in Guddian Patole next year.
Sakhiyaan ne menu mede maar diyan.... And for all the right reasons too. We have lost our sanity to his cute smile. Maninder Buttar has had a topsy-turvy journey in the music world. He has tried genres but need we say, the man is blessed with the talent to hit the emotional chord with the listeners. And if the latest trend is any indication, Sakhiyaan is here to stay and so is this talented singer.
