‘VULGAR LYRICS SPOIL IT’
Singer Jubin Nautiyal speaks his mind on vulgar lyrics, favourite music genre and increasing competition in the industry
So I want to make sense in all my songs, and all of them should have meaning
Jubin Nautiyal, singer
Singer Jubin Nautiyal (above), who has sung the song Zindagi Kuch Toh Bata in Salman Khanstarrer Bajrangi Bhaijaan, says that he will not sing a song with lewd lyrics. The singer believes that songs offer more than just entertainment, and that vulgar lyrics spoil a singer’s communication with his fans, as well as with the music at large.
He says, “For me, music is more than just a source of entertainment. It is a way to communicate with a lot of people at the same time. I want to make sense in all my songs, and all of them should have meaning. This is why I don’t really support vulgar lyrics.” While new singers are joining the music industry every day, Nautiyal says that competition has never really bothered him. “The only thing that I want to compete with is my last song. My only intention is to outdo my last song. I feel this is the only way to grow,” he says, adding, “If the audience likes to hear actors singing their own songs, then what is the harm? They must go ahead and sing. There is enough place for everyone.” Known for singing songs such as Meherbani in The Shaukeens (2014) and Ek Mulakat in Sonali Cable (2014), Nautiyal says that he does not have a favourite genre. “I don’t have a favourite genre as such. The only thing that matters to me is that I must be able to imagine my voice in a song. I have to make the song completely mine. This is why I make it a point to understand the background of the song and meet the director before I sing it,” he says.
