About the artist
DIVINE’s success has offered a blueprint for innumerable young artists who wish to break into the genre while his music has found an authentic appetite amongst listeners. With his heart-rending life story, DIVINE influenced Bollywood director Zoya Akhtar, to create the award-winning blockbuster Bollywood hit ‘Gully Boy’, which featured DIVINE on five tracks of the soundtrack, including the popular ‘Apna Time Ayega’. Following several successful singles including ‘Yeh Mera Bombay’, ‘Mere Gully Mein’, Jungli Sher’ and ‘Kaam 25’ and his breakthrough track ‘Meri Gully Mein’, he released his definitive debut album, Kohinoor in partnership with hip-hop legend Nas’ Mass Appeal aside of launching his own enterprise ‘Gully Gang Entertainment’.
The album has received widespread acclaim, with nearly all tracks becoming a mainstay on audio streaming charts in India. As the follow-up to 2019’s Kohinoor album and inspired by the unprecedented pandemic, he curated a collaborative compilation album titled ‘SHUTDOWN’ in 2020 through Gully Gang and Mass Appeal India. Closing out an event-full 2020, he released his second album ‘Punya Paap’ which debuted at #1 on Apple Music and Spotify charts (all genres) in India paving the way for him to being the first Indian Rapper to feature on the iconic Times Square (New York) billboard by Spotify.
Fresh off the success of his sophomore album, DIVINE started 2021 with aplomb, releasing his global collaboration ‘Jungle Mantra’ featuring Pusha T & Vince Staples for Netflix’s original film, ‘The White Tiger’.
