As we all know, Pasoori, a Punjabi song sung by Ali Sethi and Shae Gill, was released on the 14th season of Coke Studio earlier this year and went viral on social media platforms, especially Instagram.
Pakistani singer Ali Sethi’s viral hit has left behind BTS Butter to be the most Googled song in the world As per Google’s ‘Year in Search 2022’ rundown.
Recently, Sethi and Gill took to their social media handles and expressed how overwhelmed they are after the song’s massive success. Sethi also revealed the making of Pasoori. Sharing a few behind the scenes moments, Sethi wrote in a post on his Insta,
“Moments from the set of Pasoori – trending since two days in a row, fastest 1M views this season, yada yada. We hadn’t finished writing lyrics until 12 hours before the shoot.”
Moreover, he even told that he contracted Covid-19 in the process, on the set.
“But what an insanely fulfilling project from start to end. Xulfi took many risks and indulged all my fancies, I am indebted to you and so grateful. Abdullah Siddiqui, you are an absolute unicorn — I still can’t fathom how you banger-ified what was just a ditty in my head. Saima Bargfrede I want your hair, Fatima Butt, I want your rings, Kamal Khan, let’s make a video in Austin? And Shae, I’ve had a hundred people tell me you are ‘the Dua Lipa of Pakistan’. You are you, and there’s no one like you,” he shared, almost in awe of everyone involved in the project to ensure his fans know it takes real teamwork to make any dream work.”
However, BTS has another song in the top 10 category which is Dynamite along with Imagine Dragons (who got Enemy and Believer at the 5th and 6th spots respectively).
And two Indian songs have also found a place in the top 10 including Aditya a’s Chaand Baaliyan and Srivalli, the song from last year’s Telugu hit Pushpa: The Rise.
The data from Google displayed Javed Ali as the singer of Srivalli which implies that it is the Hindi version of the song that is on the list.
Ainsi bas la Vida, a 2014 song by French performer Indila, sported the number 8 spot and Backstreet Boys’ 1997 smash hit Everybody, took the number 9 position.
