Hiphop Tamizha Adhi who shot to fame with his single ‘Club le Mabbu le’ in 2012 has reached great heights in his career as an actor, lyricist, composer, director, and singer. The star is known for his catchy lyrics and peppy tunes as well as his boy-next-door mien which has helped him attract several fans from India and abroad.
Adhi has completed three films as an actor, one as a director, and several films as lyricist, singer, and composer in the film industry. However, he started out in 2012 as an independent musician with Jeeva’s (his partner) and his 11-track hip-hop album Hip Hop Tamizhan, the first Tamil hip-hop album from India. The album released by Think Music India went on to become a huge success, especially down South with people associating the word hip-hop to the star rather than looking at it as a musical genre.
The composer is now back, eight years later, with a new album titled ‘Naa Oru Alien’ comprising six tracks. Associating with Think Music India once again, the album will be available for fans and audiences on August 15th. The actor has revealed that the album will be a reflection of how the tables have turned due to the pandemic making things that were assumed to be significant, entirely insignificant and vice versa.
