Superstar Atif Aslam and Coke Studio breakout star Shae Gill are releasing 'Manzil', a song promoting Covid vaccinations, and already fans are pumped despite the fact that only a short teaser has been released.
The teaser for the song was posted on the US Embassy Pakistan's YouTube channel on May 11. It revealed that the music video will release on May 14 at 6pm.
"The US Embassy Islamabad partnered with Pakistani Cannes-nominated film director Sarmad Khoosat to produce a new song promoting Covid-19 vaccinations and booster shots," read the caption for the teaser. "The song, 'Manzil', included Mohammad Hanif as the lyricist and Shamsher Rana, Varqa Faraid, Nimra Gilani and Ali Hamdani as producers and composers. Vocals were provided by internationally renowned singer Atif Aslam and Coke Studio sensation Shae Gill."
The music video will also feature actor and activist Sarwat Gilani who will play the protagonist.
Fans were both surprised and excited to see Aslam pair up with the 'Pasoori' singer who's still riding the high of her song's success. The Coke Studio number sent waves across the country — and beyond — going viral on platforms such as TikTok. Gill was the star of the show and fans have only wanted to know more about her.
They took to Twitter to express their glee over the upcoming song. "A collab I never knew I needed," wrote this user. Us either!
Days have been made.
We're all looking forward to Saturday.
