Popular Indian singer Jasleen Royal seems not that happy with the media coverage of Kabir Singh’s music album crossing 1 Billion streams online. Jasleen Royal who is famous for her songs like Din Shagna Da, Kho Gaye Hum Kahan, Love You Zindagi and more, today questions the media and their way of covering such kind of news.
Kabir Singh’s music album recently crossed 1 Billion streams online and became one of the very few music albums of the country to reach this milestone. All the popular media houses of India covered this news and in their headlines they only mentioned Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani’s names.
This evening, Jasleen tweeted a photo of the headlines and wrote in the caption “I thought… Its the composers, the lyricist and the singers who makes the music album“. She was very clear with her point and the Twitteratis are also supporting her thought.

The music album which reached such heights today was a made by some talented individuals like Mithoon, Amaal Mallik, Vishal Mishra, Sachet-Parampara, Akhil Sachdeva and Harshavardhan Rameshwar. The songs which people are listening on loop were sung by Arijit Singh, Sachet Tandon, Vishal Mishra, Shreya Ghosal, Armaan Mallik, Jubin Nautiyal, Tulsi Kumar, Akhil Sachdeva and Parampara Thakur.
The heart melting lyrics which grabbed everyone’s attention due to it’s originality were hardship of Manoj Muntashir, Irshad Kamil, Mithoon and Kumar. If any music album becomes a hit, majority of the credits must be given to the creators but here something else is happening. Most of the media houses who covered this news didn’t even mentioned the creators names not even in their 400 words long article.
Jasleen was not a part of the music album but as a fellow creator she felt bad for her friends and colleagues. Her concern really questions the working method of some media houses. Maybe now it’s time to start highlighting the deserving ones rather than just putting out popular names for some quick clicks.
