Few days ago, Coke Studio released its latest Season (Season 12) for the music fans. The lovers of the music platform were desperately waiting for this season. As it was about to bring a mesmerising start with Pakistani music fans’ heartthrob Atif Aslam.
The latest season of the Coke Studio franchise featured Atif Aslam with a remake of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s Hamd ‘Wohi Khuda Hai’. Soon after the Hamd was out, fans just loved it!
Dressed in all white, the foremost rockstar sang some soulful lyrics, praising the Almighty Allah through his mesmerising voice. Indeed, it gave goosebumps to many. However, it was not only Atif Aslam who took the fans on fire. Record producer Rohail Hyatt also did a great effort. And of course, our very favorite Coke Studio also used the same formula to attract the subscribers and Pakistani fans through soothing composition. But this time, the formula worked ‘really well’.
Coke Studio definitely knows how to make a fiery start. And we could see that clearly in the form of Wohi Khuda Hai. Soon after the Hamd was released. it crossed more than 25 million views. In just a single days and now it stands at more than 250 million views on YouTube. And many more on other music and social platforms. And remember, not all the viewers were from Pakistan!
Therefore, Pakistanis, Indians, people from Middle East and many others listened to this beautiful recitation. By Atif Aslam and tried to become the first ones to like and see their comment posted under the video. Many listeners praised the singer for giving a great touch to the old Wohi Khuda Hai that was already a big hit sung by Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.
Some were all praise to Rohail Hyatt and Coke Studio. For giving the music lovers a ‘love at first sight’ feeling with this tremendous rendition. If we go through the comments section of YouTube. We could find many musicophiles giving combined reactions to this carefully timed and planned track by Coke Studio.
Expressing his feelings, one of hundreds of Wohi Khuda Hai listeners said that he was taken to another world through this track by Atif Aslam. He thinks only this track would be enough for the entire season of Coke Studio.
Another fan, who listened this song in India, said that it was unfortunate that he missed being born in Pakistan. There is a great level of music and he loves the way Pakistanis give everything a ‘final touch’.
Many other fans were praising the singer and the composer as well as the Coke Studio franchise for this great and mesmerising composition and powerful Friday package. Some said that they couldn’t wait for the next move by Coke Studio after listening to this one.
