Roundup 2018 : The Top 10 Playback Performances in Hindi Film Songs

Kicking off the yearly round up of 2018 with the Music category, here is looking at what were the Best Playback Performances both for Male and Female Singers for Hindi films of the year.

Though the overall music scenario looked relatively dull till the first half of the year, it beautifully picked up towards the second half courtesy some excellent soundtracks especially coming from films like Manmarziyaan, Andhadhun, Laila Majnu, Sui Dhaaga or Kedarnath. There was still a lot of noise coming in the form a deluge of remixes, but the following playback performances were all soul and made it permanently to the recurring playlists of the year.

Do note that the focus here is primarily on the playback performance and hence a listing of Best Songs of the year that will holistically look at the music, lyrics, singing and the feel of the song can potentially look different. For now the focus is on playback performances, and so lets get going:
