Shaan Shared His Disappointment Over Singers Copying Arijit Singh


Share post:

Indian singer Shaan isn’t happy with others  copying Arijit Singh. Despite being one of his competitors the singer acknowledged that Singh is one of the best talents that India ever had however it doesn’t stop him from criticising many singers who are trying to sound like Arijit Singh and losing their identity in the process. In an exclusive interview with Bollywood Bubble the singer opened up about his thoughts. Let’s check out what he had said.

Shaan said that copying Arijit Singh stems from some kind of insecurity

The singer said in the exclusive interview, “I think what’s happened in the recent past of course Arijit gets the line share of good songs. Today, I think a certain amount of insecurity in the music industry because the business is big. It’s also about numbers. It’s not as expensive as it used to be, the whole music production business to get in a big name that will guarantee a certain amount of stature to the song. You rather push on that which I think is a little sad because, at the end of the day, there are so many fantastic voices, original voices who have their own style.“

“But whoever is even getting a chance to sing- I have said this before also- is trying to sound like Arijit. I mean he’s doing his thing and he’s fantastic but then why the clones? I mean do your own thing because if they can’t get him at least they’ll get a closer voice. It stems from some kind of insecurity. I feel that people aren’t willing to take a chance, you made a great song, it’s a fantastic setup, get a great voice, and sing it. Let him sing it or her sing it in her own style and space,” the singer concluded.

Moreover, he said of the current remaking culture of Bollywood music, “What happens is that a song however popular it is, there’s a lifespan of the song. It then dwindles along with its own fan and own generation and then slowly the graph kind of eases out. Some more, some less, some stay longer, and some get a resurgence. In a way to make a cover, to bring the song back, a beautiful song needs to stay forever. I have no issue with the remake as a concept because the song is not just the voice. The song is the lyrics, the song is the composition, the song is the feeling and that feeling needs to be revived. But done with the right aesthetics, the right ethos, the right sensibility.“

The Chaand Sifarish singer shared, “But if you completely spoil the song and lose its essence then people would say ‘Why did you remake it’? It’s about how they execute the project not about the concept on its own. You have to give it a little tweak to make it contemporary but don’t mess with it. I’m not saying anyone has messed with any song, I’m just saying in general.”
