Coke Studio season 14 dropped another fusion-fuelled track, combining Hasan Raheem's smooth vocals with Justin Bibis' raw talent to create 'Peechay Hutt'. Though netizens appreciate Talal Qureshi's electro beats, Pakistani Twitter is pretty divided on the song itself. Running to both extremes, netizens either love it or hate it.

Released on Feb 19, 'Peechay Hutt' ticked the boxes on the two essentials needed in every hype song — faultless bass and over-the-top confidence, according to the description. "Xulfi and Associate Music Producer Qureshi finesse Coke Studio’s aim of bringing opposites together" to produce this "mid-season banger".

'Peechay Hutt' has a completely different sound compared to the other songs released this season and Coke Studio calls it the "flashpoint for a new generation’s rise."

But Raheem's mellow vocals combined with bursts of energy by the Justin Bibis against a backdrop of a thumping beat electric beat garnered mixed reactions online and netizens have been very upfront about how they feel.

Some loved it and appreciated the Shina (the language spoken in Gilgit-Baltistan and Chitral) words Raheem included in the lyrics.

Others just loved the song in general.

Raheem gained some new fans.

And old fans stood up for the singer, saying his haters are just bitter.

On the flip side, there were some netizens who weren't into the song and were confused about Raheem choosing to "do this to himself."

Some said the Justin Bibis outshone him.

While others criticised him for mumbling the song instead of singing it.

Some even threw shade at people who liked 'Peechay Hutt', claiming they were trying to stand out.

This user thought it was too hip for them.

One user reminded people that you can think the artists are great without loving every song they produce.

What do you think of the new song — is it a bop or a flop?

It's the best song of this season. Only oldie raag-lagao-aur-so-jao types would dislike this super song.

I loved it! On repeat. EDM sounds were so fresh, Tbh I never thought people would dislike it but I guess some dinosaurs have been triggered.

A good song and well crafted but I did not like it but then again I am of a certain age and I had a feeling that generation Z would appreciate this song.

don't expect everyone to like a certain beat and vocals. Hassan Raheem is indefinitely not a sureela singer and I don't like the song much, but the millennials do and that's a fact. I'm ouuta here.
