Zayn, formerly part of the popular boy band One Direction, expressed his love for the song and the experience of singing Urdu lyrics. In an interview with the BBC, the 31-year-old artist mentioned bringing a part of himself to the rendition and hoped fans would appreciate the collaboration.

Fans lauded the collaboration, considering it a great gesture and praising Zayn for uplifting Pakistani artists. The song was described as a “masterpiece,” a “comfort song,” and fans expressed shock at Zayn’s eloquent Urdu singing.

Zayn, acknowledging the overwhelming praise, expressed gratitude and love for the support. The collaboration reflects Aur’s belief in the boundless nature of music, aiming to take Pakistani music to the global stage. The band eagerly anticipates the world vibing to their music.
