Singer Amaal Mallik recently opened up about his thought on how he feels musicians and lyricists should be granted the legal right of their works, which they deserve. Read on to know what he said below.
Asked what changes he wants to see in the music industry, Amaal Mallik told IANS: “On the more technical front, I would like to hear and create something more organic. I see an inclination lately towards artificially created sounds, which are amazing too, but I feel it should be supplemented with something more. My film score in ‘Saina’ and my single ‘Tu mera nahi’ will help in proving that live musicians along with digitally produced music can go hand in hand and create a commercially hybrid score or song that can win both charts and hearts.”
“I also hope that the legal rights we musicians and lyricists deserve are given to us. I guess the latter will take its own course and we have to wait and see what happens next,” Amaal Mallik added.
Last month, Amaal ventured into the unexplored music space with his debut pop song, “Tu mera nahi”. It is a heartbreak number he has composed and sung, on lyrics by Rashmi Virag. So far, it has over 17 million views on YouTube.
During an exclusive interview with Koimoi, Amaal Mallik revealed that there might be a Tu Mera Nahi part 2 in the making. He said, “The night when I saw so much love from everyone on this song, that same night I started scripting for my second one which hopefully, or in all probability, should be like idhar se ek kahani continued to what happens.”
Amaal Mallik made his debut as a composer in his early twenties with the 2014 film “Jai Ho”. He is known for composing chartbusters like “Sooraj dooba hai”, “Main hoon hero tera” and “Naina”. In the film world, he has sung numbers like “O Khuda”, “Gulabi 2.0” and “Aashiq surrender hua”.
