He’s on the internet, he’s on your music playlist, and according to the rumor mills, 16-year old Armaan Malik could be on the list of young artists that Universal Music India wants to sign! This young singer has taken the nation by storm with his cover of Bruno Mars’ – ‘Just The Way You Are’. With a growing number of people watching the video, and taking an instant liking to his voice and quality of singing, Armaan may be asked to sign a deal with one of the world’s greatest music labels.
Armaan is a talent that has shown the mettle for such recognition. Having sung for movies such as Bhootnath and Chillar Party, as well as several ad-jingles, Armaan has a voice that is not only endearing, but also familiar. According to him, he began singing before he began to talk! On being asked about the Universal rumor, Armaan said, “No, it’s not true. I haven’t been approached by any label. But it would be a dream come true for me! I’ve always wanted to be associated with Universal.” We hope that this dream does come true. Universal Music India already has artists like Rabbi, Lesle Lewis and Indus Creed on board, and not only is it a privilege for one to be considered as a Universal Artist, but for that to happen at the age of 16, is something to be proud of. On the international scale, Universal artists include a fabulous line-up like Jessie J, Rihanna, and The Black Eyed Peas. Is there any truth to these rumors? We aren’t sure yet, but we do hope that talented youngsters like Armaan, make it big, with platforms like Universal available to him.
