Aarya Jadhao, known as QK, is a singer, rapper, and composer who gained recognition from her appearance on MTV Hustle 2.0. With a distinct blend of musical talents, she has garnered attention for her upcoming song, Le Jaa.

In conversation with SheThePeople, she discussed her evolving musical style and creative process and opened up about her upcoming song ‘Le Jaa’, inspired by personal heartbreak, and her belief in the emotional resonance of her music. She also emphasises how digital platforms have not only widened her reach but also served as a crucial medium for sharing her music and connecting with a global audience.

Aarya Jadhao QK Interview

The composer opened up about her life after Hustle 2.0 and if she has been in touch with your co-contestants. She said that the reality show helped her reach a wider audience. “A lot of new people started listening and connecting to my music, and that made me really happy. But after a while, you end up realising that people now have higher expectations of you, which builds a certain kind of pressure. But that pressure worked well for me because I took it as a challenge and started working even harder on making each track the best I could by giving it my all.”

She added, “I have stayed in touch with fellow contestants, and I believe we share a unique bond. We frequently keep having our own banter every now and then that keeps our connection strong.”

We asked her about her journey from the show to her current work and how it influenced her artistic style and approach. She shared that although the show helped her expand her audience, the audience really enjoyed her music and believed in her as an artist, which was truly gratifying. But the love she was showered with for a softer rap like ‘Chitthi’ (on MTV Hustle 2.0) gave her the confidence to try something like ‘Le Jaa’.

QK’s Melodic Comfort for Breakups

Talking about her upcoming song, she said that drawing from her own heartbreak, she crafted a soothing melody for those navigating breakups, highlighting the comforting power of music.

It is about that stage of breakup where we accept that things have changed between two people, and of course it hurts, but we still try to move on. There is nothing there that can make you feel better other than letting go, and that’s what this song stands for: to move on. I wrote this song after dealing with heartbreak. Hence, I made this song so that people can listen to it and find some sort of support because that’s what we do after a breakup, we listen to music!

Her music often resonates with listeners on an emotional level, and she shares how she connects with the emotions of her audience while performing or recording. She said, “Every song I’ve written draws from my personal experiences, and I’ve tried to stay as honest and authentic in my expression. So I feel that sincerity and honesty are what resonated in my work and connected with the audience. It is likely because they might have encountered similar feelings, allowing my music to strike a chord with them.”

Balancing Different Creative Aspects

Moving ahead in the conversation, the singer shared how she balances different creative aspects as a music composer, singer, and writer when working on a new track. She said, “When working on a new track, my focus is always on the task at hand. I like to break down the process and tackle one thing at a time. For instance, when I am composing a track, I ensure the entire melodic structure is finalised before moving onto the lyrics. For me, all three do not necessarily fall into a different bucket; in fact, they are so intertwined with each other and come naturally to me that it has become part of the process. Moreover, I believe that they complement and influence one another.”

She added, “At times, the starting point might be different for each song, like the first line comes to me, followed by the composition, or maybe the composition of the whole song comes first, and then I go on to writing. This makes it exciting and challenging for me, and I genuinely enjoy the whole process and the journey of creating a song.”

She even discussed how the accessibility of digital platforms has provided tremendous empowerment for artists like her. She said, “Coming from a small town like Amravati with limited awareness about Rap, these platforms have provided me with the opportunity to share my music and connect with a global audience. They have served as a vital platform to showcase my talent and break geographical boundaries.”
