I wasn’t too serious about music before Pasoori and Coke Studio: Shae Gill


Shae Gill is the music industry’s most recognized breakout star so far in 2022. The singer created waves with her well-received Coke Studio collaboration with Ali Sethi, Pasoori, which has gone on to become one of the most popular songs of the 14th season thus far.

In an interview with BBC Urdu, Shae discussed her reaction to being given the CS duet and how Pasoori’s success has inspired her to take music more seriously as a profession.

While explaining about her succes, Shae said:

When Coke Studio asked me to sing for them, I just said, ‘Thank you.’ I wasn’t excited right off the bat. I couldn’t believe what had just happened. It took me a while to digest it.

While revealing how music producer Xulfi spotted her on Instagram, Shae uttered:

Coke Studio producer Zulfiqar Jabbar Khan (Xulfi) found my Instagram page and checked out my singing. He liked my songs and later contacted me via direct message, saying, ‘I want you to sing for Coke Studio.’ The rest is history.

Sharing about her experience with Ali Sethi, she shared:

It was a great experience. Often when new singers work with a great artist like him, they feel very nervous, but Ali Sethi is a very humble man. He treats me very well and has a lot of knowledge of music to share.

Shae revealed how she had never regarded music as a core career option before Pasoori changed her mind.

She continued:

I wasn’t too serious about music before Pasoori and Coke Studio. But, since then, I’ve taken it seriously and I’ve had so much fun with it. I want to pursue music as a career now and I plan on working hard on it.
