Mission Accomplished: Akasa proves #GirlsCan
By Bryan Durham - November 14, 2019
Children’s Day was a lot of things to many people, but for Akasa, it was something special. The pop princess also became the only female Punjabi artist to feature on the most popular Spotify playlist covers (in the male-dominated Punjabi music genre) for a special initiative by the streaming giant.
The song on the playlist called I-Pop is Naagin, Akasa’s latest hit. It is currently the 30th most watched video on Youtube globally and is #8 in India. Around 900,000 videos have been created using the song on TikTok and it is firmly in the top position across audio streaming charts, a huge feat for a non-Bollywood number.
To know what Akasa had to say about the unique distinction achieved on Spotify India, she said, “Mission accomplished! #GirlsCan. I’m now hoping against hope that my next song makes it to the cover as well.
About the cover itself, she told us this…
