It’s been four years since he became a part of the music industry, and despite three singles, Punjabi musician, Avinash Rajpal aka Avi J refuses to acknowledge that he has become a popular musician.

The 27-year-old who is also a popular radio jockey at Fever 104 FM, released his latest single Die Hard Fan on Tuesday and like his last two singles, Udeekan and Sheesha Down Karke, this track, too, has become an instant hit.

“The moment I start thinking that I have arrived or I have become a successful star, I will stop working hard. As an artist I need to put in the same effort in my music or else I will just fizzle out,” he says.

He wants to “keep evolving” as a musician and says, “It is imperative that I do that. If you don’t grow as an artist, then you are over, as soon as you complete your shelf life. I mean, there are so many musicians who have been successful for two or three years and then everyone forgot them, as people started following a different sound. So, unless you are ready to explore other genres as well, you will not go further as an artist.”

“After Die Hard fan, I’m releasing a love song for Valentines day and I’m also in talks with a few Arabic artists, as I want to do something in that space —it will be a different experience altogether. I don’t want to stick to just one genre,” he concludes.
