In every era in Bollywood, there is one singer that always used to stand out among his or her peers, no matter how brief the period is. It is not that they were not good singers afterwards or before, but that particular period was the peak of their popularity. Mohammed Rafi and Mukesh had their eras, Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhosle had theirs. In the '90s, there were Kumar Sanu, Anuradha Paudwal, Sadhna Sargam and Udit Narayan. Sonu Nigam and Shaan took over from them. For a brief time, Sunidhi Chauhan and Kunal Ganjawala ruled the last decade. And this decade had the stamp of Arijit Singh.

Arijit Singh, who started off his innings as a singer being a former Fame Gurukul contestant, is now considered an indispensable part when it comes to Bollywood music. There is a rarely a movie soundtrack that doesn't feature an Arijit Singh song. Unless of course, that soundtrack belonged to a Salman Khan film (Bhai has some unspoken grudge with Arijit).
Arijit's impressive vocal range makes him a fit for any genre of song. That said, he is most famous for his tragic romantic tracks. His popular tracks in films like Aashiqui 2, Haider, Ek Villain, Aashiqui 2, Dilwale, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil had given him that tag. He has sung so many sad songs that it has now become a meme on Twitter. Happy Birthday Arijit Singh! 5 Underrated Songs of the Talented Singer That Should be on Your Playlist Today.
