Not everyone is grooving to 'Groove Mera' by Naseebo Lal, the Young Stunners, and Aima Baig.

Pakistan's biggest sporting event, the Pakistan Super League (PSL), is back and like every year, the first buzz is around its anthem.

The PSL 6 anthem features Naseebo Lal, Young Stunners and Aima Baig and it's called 'Groove Mera'.

It's a mix of the traditional vocals of Naseebo Lal, rap by the Young Stunners, Aima Baig's power vocals and a catchy beat. The music video premiered on February 6 and already has 2.5 million views on YouTube.

Sure some of it doesn't make sense like but it heavily emphasises how this year's PSL will be watched on TV screens instead of in stadiums. In fact, it's in the lyrics: "Aaj dekhe ga crowd mera groove TV pe" which translates to the crowd will see my groove on TV today.

The music video also featured people watching matches on TVs, mobile phones and laptops and Wahab Riaz patting a TV in a stadium, emphasising how this year's PSL will be different because of the pandemic.

While the tournament begins on February 20 at Karachi's National Stadium — with the first T20 being played between the Karachi Kings and Quetta Gladiators — the chatter right now is all about the song (we haven't forgotten last year's drama).

Twitter was divided over the song, with some people reminiscing about Ali Zafar's anthem yet again and others enjoying how catchy the PSL 2021 version is. Others didn't know what groove meant.

Here's what people are saying.
