The latest song in Coke Studio's season 14 lineup, 'Go', features Abdullah Siddiqui and Atif Aslam coming together for an unexpected Urdu-English hybrid. Taking everyone by surprise, the latest song is "an ode to sensitivity," according to Coke Studio's Instagram.

Siddiqui took to Instagram and thanked Coke Studio producer Xulfi for letting him make a "wonky desi hyperpop track" and for letting him bring a legend like Aslam into it. "Thank you for being there to guide me through all my panic and anxiety, and for creating an artistically generous environment for me to work in," he wrote.

He also thanked the 'Pehli Dafa' singer for elevating the song, just like how he elevates everything he works on. " Your voice is what fuels this song. Your melodies are poignant and instantly resonant. Thank you for the honour that is sharing your stage with you," he wrote. Siddiqui also credited Maanu for writing the song and allowing him and Aslam to perform it.

Fans of the two musicians have been taking to Twitter to express their take on the unexpected collaboration. For many, it's exactly the "banger" they were waiting for this season. The song starts with the traditional tune of a sarangi that fades into a more pop beat.

This Twitter user believes that 'Go' showcases "diversity" in a song.

For this user, anything Aslam releases is "a masterpiece" and his recent release is a "gem of a song". He also praised Siddiqui as he "never fails to impress".

For this Twitterati, the song is "faultless" and "magical".

Other users praised it for being good and the duo — Siddiqui and Aslam — being superior.

For some Twitter users, this season started off "with a blockbuster", featured songs like 'Pasoori' and 'Beparwah' and the latest song is another hit.

Other users believe delivering hit after a hit, Coke Studio has a "personality" now.

The song comes few days after the music platform revealed its 11th track 'Thagyan' featuring Zain Zohaib and Quratulain Balouch. The upbeat song adds a modern element to qawwali.

I do not know why, whenever I hear some thing good from the Music industry, I am always cautious if it is not copied from outside. Just like our cricket team you know what I mean.

Coke Studio 14 is a blast success in all cities in the US where many Pakistanis reside. People stop me and ask "how did we not know of this tremendous talent of gifted music industry." The accolades are too many to describe that a new chapter for Pakistani music. The Pakistani film industry is lagging in innovative creations but Coke Studio 14 proves there is hope!

This new coke studio 14 may be appealing for the new generation but honestly for me it has lost its old beauty. Too much rap, too much punjabi, to much fusion and more focus on video, stage and costumes rather than lyrics and singing. The true coke studio is lost somewhere the change is too fast and too much.

This guy Arif Aalam became famous only due to few well written and composed Indian songs. See now his all songs are mediocre. He was just overhyped.

@Uday actually you indians took him onboard because he was already famous. He didn't have to do anything over there to become a hit across the border.
