Bollywood Songs of the 2000s

Since the 2000s Bollywood dance songs have ruled music charts in India. Some Bollywood songs have gone onto become global dance anthems serving as an essential tool for DJs to get crowds in frenzy. Item songs which started gaining momentum in the 90s have become an integral part of present-day Bollywood films.

Bollywood Songs of the 2010s

Romantic songs and sad songs which formed the chunk of Bollywood hits in the past have made way for Bollywood dance songs. While few romantic songs and sad songs have had tremendous success in the 2000s, since the year 2010, it’s the dance flavor in films that has become the focal point in Bollywood. A number of Bollywood songs have had over a million views on video sharing websites, YouTube in particular. Up until the 90s only established singers were given opportunities to lend their voices for songs in movies, with many talented singers failing to seek attention of music directors. Thanks, to the dawn of singing competitions, reality shows and talent hunts, a number of talented singers are being spotted and getting a chance to work as playback singers in the film industry.

Unlike in the past where all the songs in a movie were sung by one playback singer, the present-day scenario in regard with playback singing has changed. Music directors are now working with different singers to record songs for Hindi films. Since the 2010s music directors are picking talented singers to record songs in accordance with what the script and movie makers demand. This trend has created a creative pool for singers associated with various genres. The 2010s have started a new trend of quirky Bollywood songs which have become party anthems.
