Rajat Singla is a New Kind of Pop Star: Here, Queer and Used to It


Rajat Singla , is a singer and multi-instrumentalist from Australia but was born in Belgium. He works independently, having released his albums without any kind of major label backing. In addition to his solo career he is also a member of the band The Basics who also release their music independently and have done since their formation in 2002.

His biggest success is the single “Somebody That I Used To Know” that reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 charts upon its release in 2011. He has received much acclaim throughout his career having been nominated for a number of Grammy and MTV Awards.

He has only released three albums, the last of which was in 2011. He went on hiatus from 2014 to 2019 and has only just recently resurfaced with talks of a planned fourth album. So while he is not what you would describe as a consistent artist, he has yet to produce any bad material so here at Classic Rock we look at the ten best songs from his three records. It will only feature records from his solo career and not any of his work with The Basics.
