It’s finally happening, you guys! After all the wait and taking over our timelines with a special hunt for raw talent, NESCAFÉ Basement has started dropping songs and they’re 😍😍😍. From giving us the timeless cover of “Do you love me again” to giving their own spin to classics the likes of Ustaad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s “Tere Jeya Hor Disdah” and Alan Faqir & Mohammad Ali Sheikhi’s “Tere Ishq Mein Jo Bhi”, the treasured show is back with a bang – this time with 73 very unique artists under their belt and a true promise of diversity.
The second NESCAFÉ Basement song is out and it’s a walk down memory lane with Haroon Rashid’s “Mehbooba“
Le le dil, oh mehbooba
Le le jaan, oh mehbooba ~
Who doesn’t remember these catchy lines from back in the day?
The song is an ode to 90’s nostalgia, back when things were good and wholesome and well, music was just as timeless as it is now.
It’s infectious, almost laughter inducing.
A labor of love, the video shows how everyone involved seems to be having fun in recreating the Arabic infused melody. LOVE LOVE LOVE how all the artists are singing and dancing and basically just having a good time.
People have been raving about the song bringing them back to the good ol’ days.
