2019 was billed as the year of Punjabi Cinema yet that particular industry has only seen two or three films actually classed as a blockbuster. The Punjabi music scene, on the other hand, has continued to grow across the globe and as August comes to an end are we going to see two weeks of monster releases?
Spotify, Gaana and Apple Music have all seen a surge in the demand for Punjabi music across there platforms. Playlists featuring Punjabi music are being generated almost on the hour and music fans just can’t seem to get enough.
As we now approach the last two weeks of August, it seems like all the Punjabi artists are getting ready to drop releases. The good thing about this? No matter what kind of Punjabi music you like, it seems as if your tastes will be catered for.
We started this week with two absolute huge releases. R Nait, one of 2019’s biggest new artists dropped his new single Red Battiyan. The song, like his previous releases, proved to be an instant hit. Red Battiyan featured Brown Boys Sunny Malton and Byg Byrd. The production from Byg Byrd was damn impressive whilst Sunny Malton highlighted once again why he is seen as a leading Punjabi rapper.
The second song that was released on Monday was the much talked about and hyped ‘Same Beef’ featuring Sidhu Moose Wala and Bohemia, once again produced by Byg Byrd. This for Punjabi rap fans lived up to the hype and then some, this banged hard! Pity, it was not dropped on all streaming platforms on day 1!!
Later this weeks we have the new song from Karan Aujla and Deep Jandu releasing ‘Koi Chakkar Ni’. This duo has dropped some of 2019’s biggest songs so far. As a result, expectations for a full Karan and Deep song are sky-high.
The biggest name in the Punjabi music industry at present is Diljit Dosanjh and he is now gearing up for his new single release ‘Muchh’. The song is said to be a straight-up Bhangra track and has been produced by The Boss! This is released on August 22nd.

Then we have Punjabi music producer Aman Hayer dropping his latest song ‘Tauba Tauba’ which features the leading lady of 2019 -Gurlez Akhtar alongside Mannu Buttar.
Hot on the Heels of Aman Hayer we have another leading UK artist Gurj Sidhu. Gurj is teaming up with Kaos Productions for his next release ‘Bass Baliye’. Its been another solid year for Gurj Sidhu and if we are judging this new song by the last few songs these guys have released together – Then, this will bang!
Globetrotting UK Dj Sensation Desi Frenzy took to social media to confirm his next release ‘Naram Jaya’ the Chamkila & Amarjyot remix. Frenzy is seen as the leading DJ on the Punjabi circuit and this announcement yesterday about an August release just had fans asking one question ‘what date’.
In addition to those named above we have new songs pencilled in from Maninder Buttar, Goldy and many more before the month of August is out! But there is more! So much more!!
The one and only Babbu Maan is set to release his new album Pagal Shayar. Any Babbu Maan release is major news and this is no different. The highly respected and talented Babbu Maan will cause a stir! Why? Because is a LEGEND!
