Maine pehle likha tha ki Raja Hasan has recorded two songs for Music Director Amit Trivedi of Aisha and Dev D fame and who is mentioned as next A.R.Rahman by the media. Out of the two songs recorded by Raja for Amit Trivedi one was for the movie No One Killed Jessica has released.

The song is not a solo but sung by singers Tochi Raina, Biswasjit Chakraborty, Shriram Iyer, Raja Hasan, Anushka Manchanda, Sonu Kakar, Aditi Singh Sharma and Sonika Sharma but in the male voices Raja's voice is distinct and it seems that Raja has sung the main male part in the song.

Here is the audio of the song Aali Re from No One Killed Jessica:

Amit Trivedi lives upto his reputation. The songs of No One Killed Jessica are receiving huge reviews. Here are some reviews for you:
 

1)Aali Re alarmingly starts off on an annoying note before Amit Trivedi's imaginative sounds kick in, and from then on its almost like he's picked up from where he parted with Rajkumar Gupta last, in Aamir. Making wonderful use of the battalion of singers at his disposal (namely Tochi Raina, Biswajit Chakraborthy, Shriram Iyer, Raja Hasan, Anushka Manchanda, Sonu Kakar, Aditi Singh Sharma and Sonika Sharma) the composer opens the soundtrack in style with Aali Re. And then comes the most sinister-sounding ode to the national capital I have heard, Dilli, a sharp contrast to A R Rahman's score last year. While perfectly aligning with the movie's mood, Amit Trivedi creates an absolute head banger with this rock song that wonderfully incorporates classical elements (Raag Todi/Subhapanthuvarali??). With the Punjabi lyrics Tochi Raina seems a perfect choice for vocals and he is given wonderful support by Amit's ex-band mate Shriram Iyer and Aditi Singh Sharma with her rockstar rendition. And what guitar riffs!! Couldn't find any discernible difference between Dilli and Dilli Hardcore.

 

Aitbaar has Amit Trivedi display a Rahmanesque flair in his intriguing employment of instruments in another rock-flavoured arrangement.  The rock-ish delivery by Vishal Dadlani, Mame Khan Manganiyar's folksy parts and Robert Omulo's rap form a brilliantly engaging combo on the vocal front as well. For the first half of Yeh Pal, Shilpa Rao leads the song with her scintillating vocals while Amit Trivedi keeps the orchestration at a minimum level. Her role abruptly ends at 3:20 when the song switches to instrumental mode, made delightful courtesy a wide range of instruments employed by the composer. The last song, Dua, is the only marginal case of the composer recycling old tunes, this one strongly evocative of Udaan songs in its arrangement and feel in places, especially the classic rock-ish portions. Nevertheless the song will have you engaged for the orchestration and the singing by Meenal Jain, Raman Mahadevan, Joi Barua and Amitabh Bhattacharya. Interesting to see Amit Trivedi's name missing in the vocal credits despite such a big lineup of singers.

After three outstanding soundtracks (discounting the one song in Striker) and a National Award in 2010, Amit Trivedi declares he is far from done, with yet another phenomenal soundtrack in No One Killed Jessica.

Music Aloud Rating ' 9/10

 
 
2) Aali re has that uniquely Rahman'ish tinge that throws a listener off course ' that excessively South Indian-sounding nuance, but with a plethora of singers including Tochi Raina, Biswajit Chakraborty, Shriram Iyer, Raja Hasan, Anushka Manchanda, Sonu Kakkar, Aditi Singh Sharma and Sonika Sharma (Phew!), this unconventional party track just rocks! More Rahman shades in Aitbaar ' early Rahman, in fact; Vishal Dadlani seems like a brilliant choice here, for, he manages the ups and down in this grungy song beautifully ' the ups, the high-pitched ones, in particular! Shilpa Rao gets her solo in Yeh pal, an expansive and husky melody, which gains enormously from Amit's free flowing tune and goes wonderfully and delightfully instrumental mid-way, tracing Aitbaar! Meenal Jain, Joi Barua, Raman Mahadevan and lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya get the chorus'ish Dua; its dulcet start gorgeously hits the higher, anthemic notes even as Amitabh's lyrics soar equally well too! The soundtrack's pulsating showpiece is that perfect ode to the Indian capital, Dilli. Ranking alongside Rahman's now-iconic Dilli tribute from Delhi 6, this one pulls all strings in making a memorably catchy track. Tochi Raina, Shriram Iyer and Aditi Singh Sharma pitch in phenomenally well! Amit Trivedi strikes again'and how!

Amit Trivedi talking about the music of No One Killed Jessica as well as music in general.

Unhone kaha ki music jahan se bhi aaye listeners ke kaano ko acha laga aur emotion ke hisab se rula de yaa hansa de wohi success hai.

Raja Hasan performed in Singapore during Diwali and the show was for IIT, Alumni Association, Singapore and was named as Diwali Dhamaka and Bollywood Nite with Raja Hasan. Raja entertained the whole audience by his performances and made the elders as well as young ones dance to his songs.

Here are some photos from the show:
