Bollywood and international music also continue to be the big categories on the streaming platform. But the telecom company also believes that the regional music is emerging as the next powerhouse because of the smartphone adoption increase in Tier 2 and 3 towns and rural areas.

“Regional content is clearly the new HERO as more users come online and look for content that is relevant to them. We aim to invest disproportionately for further expanding our regional content library and work with local artists to bring them to the online world of music.” added Nair.
