The power of music is such that it can make you fall in love, while also being able to mend your aching broken heart. Even more so, when that music has the magic touch of Arijit Singh’s mesmerising voice.

Arijit’s name in the Bollywood music industry has now become synonymous with perfection. From his soulful baritone to tracks that can get you on the dance floor, he has a voice that can blend with every mood.

From being a nobody to becoming a voice capable of touching one’s soul, Arijit is now the undisputed king of male playback singers. A blockbuster chart is incomplete without his name. Last year his song Channa Mereya struck a chord with the entire nation, making everyone feel the painful sting of love.

We have compiled a list of his 40 best tracks for your every mood. Enjoy!  

1. Ae Dil Hai Mushkil & Channa Mereya (‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’)
