“Shafi’s Blowing Up The Studio”
Coke Studio is back with another banger. This time it involves two siblings, each of whom is a powerhouse to be battled with, and together they have created pure magic! Meesha Shafi and Faris Shafi have teamed up to give us ‘Muaziz Saarif,’ and fans can’t get enough of it.
This long-awaited collaboration did not disappoint. The beat, music, vocals, videography, and general vibe are all new, but they don’t feel alien, and you can relate to them. Music fans rushed to appreciate the duo’s performance, praising the song’s joyous melody and vibrant video. Since its debut over the weekend, the song has received favorable feedback. The song was written by Faris Shafi and Meesha Shafi, while the composition was done by the Shafi siblings and Xulfi. The music has been produced by Action Zain, Abdullah Siddiqui, & Xulfi.
Faris and Meesha let loose in a dramatic and beautiful home set constructed by Harris Khatri for the song, which is all about them stating their truths.
If you want to see the suspenseful composition for yourself, then you can check it out down below here.
According to Coke Studio, “Muaziz Saarif” is a “gloves-off sucker punch to the haters.” It’s “one of those tracks that everyone was bouncing to when we were jamming — it’s just so loud and infectious, just amazing pop energy,” Siddiqui says. “It has their je ne sais quoi,” ActionZain said, “and it’s beckoning the listener to hear something new.”
Siddiqui and ActionZain combine their approaches in the song, varying tempos to reflect different moods. The clear, brittle drums of ActionZain are countered by a tabla, which mimics Faris’ “rat-a-tat delivery.” Meesha’s vocals can spin and fly thanks to Abdullah’s symphonic touches. The producers also include real elements of the performers’ personalities, making the song personal. The “helloo” sample is a Faris battle cry, while Meesha’s natural ability to swap between soaring notes and scorching Punjabi rhymes is used to the maximum. The performers also use wordplay true to their styles: Faris takes his shots nonchalantly, while Meesha attacks head-on.

#FarisShafi is soo underrated. Makes me understand and like rap music! A gem and a very fine rapper (talking about other songs of him too and his melodic word-flow). And he’s a fine songwriter, so is Meesha Shafi. Damn #CokeStudio14 !

With banger after banger released by the maestros, we can hardly maintain our excitement for what’s to come for Coke Studio. But what is certain is that season 14 has reinvented Pakistani music altogether.
What are your thoughts on Muaziz Saarif? Yay? Or Nay?
