Music videos that worked

1. Yalgaar

Yalgaar is the latest music video from CarryMinati, now the most subscribed creator on YouTube India. The song came after a controversy which involved his popular video on TikTok vs YouTube being pulled due to policy violation. Yalgaar has seen more than 50 million hits in a couple of days.

2. Chaabi Vaala Bandar

Chaabi Vaala Bandar was the first diss track from rapper Divine, against Emiway, after the former alleged he had been dissed in Emiway's previous track. The diss track saw million of hits within hours, and a lot of social media attention around the drama.

3. Bhai Bhai

Bhai Bhai is Salman Khan's third music video released on his own YouTube channel. His latest video aims at uniting Indians across religions and communities to fight against a common enemy - COVID-19. At the time of writing this, Bhai Bhai had 42 million views in 2 weeks.

4. Genda Phool

Genda Phool was another hit music video during the lockdown. Despite the initial controversy, Badshah's rendition of Genda Phool is becoming popular across social media platforms. It has about 356 million views on YouTube right now. Expect this to go up as clubs and bars reopen.

5. Bhula Dunga

Bigg Boss winner Sidharth Shukla made sure he cashed in on his recent fame to release a new music video, featuring co-participant Shehnaz Gill. The song has managed to garner over 66 million views in 2 months, and is a hit especially among Bigg Boss fans.

Music videos that flopped

1. Masakali 2.0

Masakali 2.0 was possibly the biggest flop of the lockdown. Released as an innocent remake of the original, Masakali 2.0 music video quickly started getting hate across social media. The original's creator AR Rahman even criticised the move, creating further uproar among his fans.

2. Gully Ka Kutta

Gully Ka Kutta was Emiway's reply to Divine on the diss track released earlier. He replied to his allegations and clarified his stand. However, a lot of fans claimed the song was in bad taste, and involved a lot of unnecessary swearing. Anyway, it had millions of hits in a few days.

3. Pyaar Karona

Pyaar Karona is the first music video from Salman Khan. While it did manage to get a decent number of views, it was largely criticised for the use of autotune and mediocre lyrics. Salman followed it up with two more music videos.

4. Moscow Mashuka

Honey Singh is back and his previous song Loca received a great response. However, his newest single Moscow Mashuka hasn't been able to pull as much crowd as Loca, and hasn't stood up to the standards of his usual content.

5. Mere Angne Mein

Another mediocre attempt to recreate a beautiful original song, Mere Angne Mein features Jacqueline Fernandez and Asim Riaz. However, it couldn't match up to the hype and has a ton of dislikes.
