The Tamil album, composed in association with Tamil music director Pravin Mani, will also have a Hindi version. SS Music is releasing the album in association with Sony Music. The channel has already launched a "Name your Band" contest in association with Music World outlets across South India.

"We want the involvement of the audience. We want to know what they would name the band", says Babu.

Quoting TAM ratings the music channel lays claims to the market leader's position in the South. According to the channel, is holds a market share of over 50 per cent in the TG of 15-34 years during prime time.
