2016 has witnessed a wide array of many albums that have encompassed different genres of musical spell by AR Rahman, Santhosh Narayanan, Ghibran, Harris Jayaraj and Yuvan Shankar Raja. Every year iTunes brings out the No.25 ranked albums based on the sales and downloads.
To everyone’s surprise, Santhosh Narayanan’s Kabali featuring Superstar Rajinikanth and Radhika Apte in lead roles hold No 1 position followed by next 5 positions going to English and Hindi albums with Young Superstar Silambarasan-Manjima Mohan starrer ‘Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada being featured at No. 2 position.
The film features musical score by AR Rahman and then it’s the same music director’s other album ‘24’ starring Suriya, Samantha and Nithya Menen in lead roles getting the No. 3 position. The fourth place goes to Vijay-Samantha-Amy Jackson starrer ‘Theri’ composed by G.V. Prakash Kumar and Harris Jayaraj’s Iru Mugan getting at No. 5 position that stars Vikram, Nayantara and Nithya Menen in lead roles.
This is the first ever time neither AR Rahman nor Anirudh is getting the No. 1 position, but Santhosh Narayanan has captured the markets and that’s all because of Superstar Rajinikanth factor in Kabali.
