The Punjabi Entertainment Industry has given a number of talented individuals, including singers, rappers and actors. One rising star who captured the spotlight in 2021 is Shubhneet Singh, aka Shubh. The artist quickly gained fame after releasing his debut single Don’t Look alongside Irman Thiara. However, it was his breakthrough single, We Rollin, followed by Elevated and Offshore, which helped him turn into a sensation. Shubh not only won the hearts of the general public but also earned praise from various prominent artists, including Virat Kohli. His catchy beats and melodious songs became favourites among youth everywhere.
Hailing from Punjab, the young artist relocated to Canada, where he spent most of his time and started his musical journey. Other than singing, Shubh is a multitalented artist— a lyricist, rapper and music composer.
Shubhneet Singh’s fan base extends far beyond India, as he has a significant fan following among the Sikh communities in Canada, the United Kingdom, the USA and Australia. He is the younger sibling of Ravneet Singh, who is also a popular actor, singer and host in the entertainment industry.
In 2022, Shubh had a fruitful year with the release of three singles, No Love, Baller and Her. Among these tracks, Baller emerged as his most streamed song to date and even secured a spot on the Canadian Hot 100 charts. The momentum continued in 2023 as Shubh unveiled his debut album, Still Rollin, which made its presence felt on the Billboard Canadian Albums Charts. Following the album’s launch, Shubh thrilled his fans by announcing a World Tour, for which he is set to visit 10 major Indian cities, starting from Bengaluru on September 23, until November 5 in Pune.
However, Shubhneet Singh’s upcoming tour is under fire due to a controversial incident earlier this year when he shared a distorted map of India. The map excluded regions like Jammu & Kashmir, the North East and Punjab, causing uproar among his Indian fans. This move has led to criticism from Indian fans and figures like Virat Kohli, along with Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul, who have reportedly unfollowed him on Instagram.
The singer is also scheduled to perform in Mumbai as part of the Cruise Control 4.0 event in November aboard the Cordelia Cruise and is also facing opposition for the same. Members of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) have torn his posters, citing his alleged support for the Khalistani movement.
