Quratulain Balouch Was A Queen On Coke Studio Finale And We're Crying Happy Tears

By Haadia Paracha | 23 Sep, 2016

“Jadon chadd jaway, naina bhar jaaway. Hanjuaan da paani wich saada baira tar jaawe”

“When you leave me, my eyes fill with tears. Our boats float to the shore in a sea of tears…”

Quratulain Balouch took over the song with those lyrics relying purely on her deep, penetrating vocals, deprived of any musical assistance,  and you’re instantly transformed to the ending of a beautifully tragic love story between heer rajha, stranded on a boat, separated by the zaalim zamana.


After Sammi Meri Waar in Season 8, Quratulain Balouch finally made it to the stage with Sab Jag Soye in #FinaleFriday of Coke Studio 9.

The song was originally performed and composed by Farhan Saeed, Momina Mustehsan & Saad Sultan as Pi Jaun but has been re-worked with a classic Coke Studio spin.


As expected, people were ecstatic about this rendition:


Props to the song for neutralizing tensions between Pakistan and India:


Some were a little too smitten QB’s voice:


Shuja Haider and QB duo were showered with praises


While some expected nothing less of absolute grandeur from Quratulain Balouch, others resorted to the usual Momina Mustehsan comparison:



The song was LIT.



The general trend in the comments section bears witness to this very fact:



Queen B knows fully well about the effect she has on us:
