One of the most popular songs to come out of Coke Studio’s season 14 is none other than Pasoori. In addition to the allure of Ali Sethi and the reggaeton-inspired beat of the song, it is Shae Gill’s extraordinary vocals in the song that really makes it stand out. In Sethi’s words, Gill is the ‘Dua Lipa of Pakistan’, but who exactly is this singer and how did she start out?
Following a recent interview given to Spotify, Gill’s fans and listeners got a glimpse into who she is as a person and singer. “I am a 23-year-old artist from Lahore,” said the Pasoori singer, introducing herself in the video.
When asked about how her musical journey began, Gill revealed how it started in her bestie’s room. “It started from my best friend’s room in the hostel where we lived together and we just started making videos then and that’s how Shae Gill started,” she said.
Who are some of Gill’s musical influences? The singer gave quite the thoughtful answer to that. “I would say, people who live life passionately,” she said. She was also asked what it was like performing Pasoori, the answer to which was: “a whole lot of fun”.
Gill is eager to take the next big steps in her music career and wants to collaborate with the Urdu rap duo Young Stunners as well as the talented A.R. Rahman. Not a bad idea at all. The emerging star also has some big plans for 2022. “I want to start writing and I want to start learning classical music,” she shared.
Take a look at her interview:
Gill’s reaction had Coke Studio’s executive producer, Xulfi, all teary-eyed in the comment section. Even Sethi made an appearance there and raved about his co-singer.
“Shae Gill I have had a hundred people tell me you are ‘the Dua Lipa of Pakistan’ (you are you, and there is no one like you),” he said. We are definitely eager to listen to more from Gill and can’t wait to see what the ‘Dua Lipa of Pakistan’ has in store for us after Pasoori.
Fans are mystified by the new season of Coke Studio, and Tu Jhoom is yet another song that has received immense praise, not just in Pakistan but also from across the border.
It was about time for Naseebo Lal to be recognized for her talent, especially after her soulful duet with Abida Parveen. Indian Punjabi singer, Daler Mehndi, had nothing but admiration for the soulful composition and Lal’s voice.
