Coke Studio 14’s hit number, Pasoori, has been making waves ever since its release last year. From being featured in the fourth episode of the much-acclaimed miniseries Ms. Marvel to becoming the most streamed Pakistani song on Spotify, the track has proved itself to be a formidable feat in the music industry.

Carrying the winning streak further in 2023, Ali Sethi took to social media on Sunday to announce that the popular Punjabi folk tune has now added another feather in its cap, crossing 500 million views on YouTube. This also makes Pasoori the first ever Coke Studio song to reach this milestone.

Taking to Instagram, Sethi shared the exciting news with his followers alongside a few pictures and videos from a close-knit party commemorating the achievement. In the clips, Sethi can be seen happily celebrating with many others including Shae Gill, Abdullah Siddiqui, and Zulfiqar Jabbar Khan.

The Chan Kithan crooner also expressed his disbelief on the wonderful news. “What just happened?” read his caption on the aforementioned post.
