Diljit Dosanjh

Where: G.O.A.T

Why: When Diljit regaled us through the early days of the lockdown with his daily cooking videos on Instagram, we thought the artist had already done his bit in bringing cheer to our lives. But it turns out he was also creating 16 new tracks for his Punjabi album G.O.A.T (Greatest Of All Time). Dosanjh wrote, recorded, and shot videos for the album entirely during the lockdown. G.O.A.T is a massive success, with each song sitting at millions of views on YouTube and clocking the No. 1 position on Billboard's Top Triller Global chart.
