As far back as his career goes, Atif Aslam has always been a star. The Wazirabad born singer made his debut with the much revered band Jal but quit immediately over differences with the other members. However, that didn’t stop him from continuing to create spectacular melodies that resonated with audiences on both sides of the border. Here we have prepared a list of 10 songs that went on to define his career. Let’s have a look at them.
Aadat (Deep Blue Version)
Among the many versions of Aadat this one stands out for its rawness. The song managed to bring Atif’s voice to the notice of mainstream producers, and the journey after that has only been about success.
Hum Kis Galli Jaa Rahe Hai
This used to be the one song that no graduation party would be complete without. Hum Kis Galli Jaa Rahe Hai resonates a lot with youngsters due to its lyrics, and that contributes to its timelessness.
The title track from Atif’s second album Doorie was a stunner. This song proclaimed that he was ready for the big league, and as his career has shown us, he indeed was.
Atif cemented his place in Bollywood with this song. It perfectly showcased what his voice was capable of. Tere Bin is an excellent song through and through and has been sung to perfection by Atif.
Pehli Nazar Mein
A huge highlight from Atif Aslam’s career was this song from the movie Race. Released in 2018, it was composed by Pritam, with lyrics having been penned by Sameer.
Atif’s third album featured this gem of a song. Meri Kahaani has a flavour of its own that needs to be experienced by you if you haven’t done that yet.
Tu Jaane Na
The soundtrack of Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani was lit on fire by Atif Aslam and Kailash Kher’s soulful singing. Tu Jaane Na has since become an iconic track that a generation has crooned non-stop when it was first released.
This was a major highlight of Atif Aslam’s career. The amount of hard work and energy he has put into this Coke Studio song is phenomenal. With this track, he managed to silence the very few critics that he had once and for all.
Tere Sang Yaara
Tere Sang Yaara was one of the biggest hits of 2016. A product of the brilliant music director that Arko is, it has been sung expertly by Atif Aslam. The song contributed a lot to the success of the film Rustom.
Dil Diyan Gallan
